Computer Science

A Master of Science or MSc is a postgraduate degree typically in the fields of sciences and social sciences. MSc may be course-based, research-based, or a mixture of the two.

As the computer science field of study became increasingly prevalent, many had their doubts that this field of study would continue. It was not until the 1950s that computer science began to be observed as a legitimate science among academics. It is thanks to the IBM brand that this became part of the main-stream culture.

Understanding data about human behaviour is an important and valuable skill in today's society. Companies, public institutions and governmental organizations — they all use the continuous stream of big data to describe and predict human behaviour.

Behavioural Data Science

The police use data to predict the risk of burglary by area and week of the year, insurance companies adjust their prices based on client data, and schools adjust educational programmes based on what is known about student progress.

Leveraging the full potential of these massive amounts of behavioural data towards these goals greatly benefits from a thorough understanding of data science techniques and human behaviour modelling. The master's track Behavioural Data Science aims to combine these two. The programme assumes knowledge of psychology, research methodology, and applied statistics at an undergraduate level, and continues with training on advanced (big) data techniques, academic skills, as well as practical and professional skills. ...

Information studies is a broad and interdisciplinary field, primarily concerned with the analysis, collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information. It examines the interaction between people, organisations and any existing information systems, with the aim of creating, replacing, improving or understanding information systems.

Information studies tackles systemic problems first rather than individual pieces of technology within that system: it focuses on understanding information problems from the perspective of the stakeholders involved, and then applying technologies as needed. Not only aspects of computer science are incorporated, but also aspects of research fields like cognitive science, commerce, communications, management, philosophy, public policy, and the social sciences. ...

What if you could simulate the outcome of a surgical procedure before it is used on a patient? Or predict how a crowd would behave in the event of a disaster?

What is Computational Science?

Computational Science seeks to explain the complex world we live in using technological simulations. By collecting data and creating computer models, computational scientists can make predictions on varying problems such as how to influence the flow of traffic, how an epidemic will spread or the probability of individuals in society becoming addicted to drugs. The curriculum relies heavily on algorithmic-driven procedures (step-by-step procedure for solving a problem in a limited number of steps) but also involves lots of mathematics and logic. Students will learn to apply this knowledge to different research areas in the natural sciences.... [-]

What is intelligent behaviour? How can computers recognize faces and objects? In this programme, you will learn how to design and implement intelligent systems.

The Master in Artificial Intelligence revolves around three core topics: autonomous perceptive systems, cognitive robotics and multi-agent systems.

Autonomous Systems

A robot taking samples and collecting information on the moon is an example of an autonomous system. It operates and carries out missions independently. Regardless of its surroundings, it responds with a certain intelligence. While traditional AI focuses on cognition and reasoning as isolated abilities, we strongly believe in perception as an active behaviour, which is integrated into general cognition.... [-]

MSc Artificial Intelligence

What is intelligent behaviour? How can robots communicate with each other? How to design a system that negotiates? In this programme, you will learn how to design and implement intelligent systems. Humans and animals are important sources of inspiration in this area.

The Master’s programme Artificial Intelligence (AI) focuses on the development of intelligent systems. The core topics in this master are autonomous perceptive systems, cognitive robotics and multi-agent systems.

Systems that can operate and carry out missions independently

Autonomous systems are systems that can operate and carry out missions independently, for example, robots driving around on the moon taking samples and collecting information. Even in unpredictable surroundings these robots respond with a certain intelligence and take decisions about what to do. At the University of Groningen, we concentrate on autonomous perceptive systems, i.e. robots that can find and read a sign in an unknown environment or systems that detect verbal aggression from the complex sounds of busy streets. While traditional AI focuses on cognition and reasoning as isolated abilities, we strongly believe in perception as an active behaviour which is seamlessly integrated into general cognition.... [-]

Master’s programme in Artificial Intelligence

The Master of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a two-year advanced programme organized by the Department of Knowledge Engineering. The focus of this programme is on the understanding, design and creation of intelligent systems in both software (e.g., computer games) and hardware (e.g., robotics). The term “Artificial Intelligence” dates back to 1956 when John McCarthy defined it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines”. Even though nowadays we are still far from building machines that can pass the famous Turing test (A. Turing, Mind, 59 (236), 1950 - a test to determine whether a machine shows human intelligence), Artificial Intelligence has become a very active domain in both academia and industry. It has achieved to build computer programmes and robots that learn from experience, recognize patterns in vast amounts of data, and reason strategically in complex decision-making situations. Artificial Intelligence is, therefore, an interdisciplinary field where domains such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Psychology, Biology, Philosophy and Economics meet.... [-]
