Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field of computer science that enables computers and machines to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence.
Its many applications range from chess-playing robots and autonomous cars to speech, image, and language processing, robotic manufacturing, and surveillance systems.
In the twenty-first century, AI has experienced a resurgence following concurrent advances in computer power, large amounts of data, and theoretical understanding. AI techniques have now become an essential part of the technology industry, helping to solve many challenging problems in computer science.
The programme content delivers a comprehensive range of topics, integral to the study of AI. These include machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, optimisation and big data processing to name but a few. Graduates of the programme may also wish to continue to PhD level in this exciting field of study.
