The master’s specialization in Artificial Intelligence offers future-oriented topics in computer science. With a focus on machine learning, optimization algorithms, and decision support techniques.

Artificial intelligence techniques are capable of making incredibly accurate predictions based on data they themselves have gathered. In other words, computers can learn without intervention once they have been pre-programmed by humans.

In this specialization, we explore the borders of what a revolutionary new generation of Artificial Intelligent algorithms can achieve. The specialization also deals with applications of these algorithms to sieve out knowledge from data. That is hard to extract for humans and to search for the best combination of a variety of factors in some production processes.
