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.

The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. English speaking students will have no problems finding suitable courses. For international students applying to universities in the Netherlands, several scholarships are available.

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.... [-]

A Quickly Changing And Challenging Field

Artificial Intelligence is a fast-paced and challenging field that is making visible inroads into our everyday life. Natural language processing of the type used in smartphones or Google Translate has become commonplace. Characters in virtual worlds are becoming smarter, leading to more natural, interesting, and useful experiences in computer games and simulations. In California, self-driving cars with sensors and GPS are tested that can autonomously drive you to your destination. Research shows that we can enhance human cognitive functions by directly linking the brain to a computer. IBM’s Watson system, which defeated the best human players in the popular American TV quiz Jeopardy, shows that large-scale knowledge-based systems can have a practical use.

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.... [-]

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....
