The core topics in the Master's programme Artificial Intelligence are: 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.

Cognitive Robotics
The courses taught in the area of cognitive robotics are related to research in social robotics, to the origin of robotic communication and to the way in which robots recognize movement. Research is conducted at the Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering Institute.

Multi-agent Systems
When a team of robots play football they have to communicate and cooperate with each other. This is an example of a multi-agent system. When designing these systems, techniques from computing science and logic are combined with knowledge about the interaction amongst humans and animals.

Francesco Bidoia
Using my knowledge in my future work

'I came to Groningen for the Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence because of the practical approach: half of the courses I followed involved practical cases, which form a big part of each course.

This works perfect for me because we are given the chance to immediately test and play with all the knowledge which is handed to us. This approach boosts the learning of a subject. It is great to have the opportunity to discover and deepen the understanding of a concept thanks to a supervised project.
I particularly focused my courses on robotics...
Autonomous navigation systems has always been one of my particular interests, and after the possibility to study and practice those systems in the Robolab, I'm looking forward to using my knowledge in my future work.’

Trudy Buwalda
How humans learn new tasks

After doing her master's project in the USA, Trudy wanted to continue to work on the edge of knowledge. She ended up back in Groningen for a PhD project about the transfer of cognitive skills. She builds computer models which show how humans learn new tasks and tests them by comparing them to, for example, test scores or brain activity. Using her models we can learn more about how your brain uses what you already know to learn something new.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

Once you have obtained your Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence, you can apply your skills in research & development, for instance air traffic and space labs, where you make sure that intelligent and innovative technologies are used during the design process. You could also choose to get a job at a research institute where you work as a researcher. This can be done at a university (PhD) or at a research institute like TNO. About 50% of our students chooses a career as a scientist.
Where do graduated master AI students work at the moment? Maarten van Grachten and Mathijs Homminga did the AI master in the old doctoral program and they specialised in very different directions. Mathijs works as a software engineer at the IT-company Evermind. He programs and implements innovative IT-projects for shops. Maarten is doing a PhD in Barcelona where he investigates how a computer can compose jazz music.
