What will you learn
Groundbreaking insights are often found at the crossroads of disciplines. The vibrant and interdisciplinary field of Artificial Intelligence is a good example of this. We study human cognition in order to be able to understand and model artificial intelligence, with the aim of creating smarter computers and robots. In addition to mathematics, computing science and other exact sciences, you will be studying psychology, neuroscience, logic and linguistics. After all, you will first need to know how the human brain works before you can start creating smart computers and robots. Conversely, computer models that mimic these brain processes can be quite useful in understanding the human brain. Artificial is a young dynamic field in which there is much to discover!
