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.

Admission Requirements

A Bachelor's degree in Artificial Intelligence or a relevant degree including the following subjects: Knowledge Systems, Autonomous Systems, Mathematics (discrete and continuous), Statistics, Logics (set theory, predicate logic and modal logic), and Computer Science (programming, data structures, search techniques, practical skills).

More Information

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.
