Kunstmatige Intelligentie

Our Bachelor's degree programme in artificial intelligence is connected to the Bernoulli Institute.

The mission of the Bernoulli Institute is to perform outstanding academic research and teaching in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence, and to maintain international leadership herein; to foster these disciplines as a living body of knowledge, and to make it relevant to society in its broadest sense. The symbiosis between pure and applied science, and between mono- and multidisciplinary research and teaching, is a distinguishing characteristic of our institute. As an important part of this mission we aim to transfer our results to other areas of science and technology, and initiate and expand inter- and multi-disciplinary research collaborations.

The following research groups within the institute focus on Artificial Intelligence:

    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.

    The lectures have a good dynamic, the lecturers are very involved and their English helps me improve mine

    Groningen is a great place for international students. I started with a semester here as part of my first studies, Law and Economics, and returned for the bachelor programme Artificial Intelligence. There are plenty of places that define themselves as 'academically oriented', but Groningen really offers an involving university atmosphere.

    There are so many committees, study-related activities, sports clubs, extra-curricular courses and even a welcoming week. Thanks to the ESN (Erasmus Student Network ) there also is a thriving community of international students.

    The Dutch are very open and helpful, but it is essential to have other international students around. Especially when it comes to bureaucratic issues, like enrolling at city hall, signing up for exams or finding a doctor. It helps to talk to people who are going through the same things. I've made sure to be part of several different student bodies and groups, so that I can help guide other students. It's a lot of work, but being a pivot within the university makes me feel like this city really is my home.

    The Netherlands have a very curious, open and accepting society. As soon as you realise that everyone here is away from their home, even the Dutch, it's easy to find common ground and make friends. I live with other Dutch students and was recently invited to go sailing with one of them, and I've even met their parents. I feel lucky to be able to keep in touch with my own family and friends at home so easily thanks to social media and video calls. It has made it a lot less scary to take the leap.

    Although I already knew the city from my initial semester, I was a little hesitant about starting a full-blown bachelor. The university offered me the chance to get my math level up to scratch over the summer so that I would qualify for the programme, which made me a little nervous about whether I'd be able to pass my classes. Fortunately, Artificial Intelligence is right up my street. The lectures have a good dynamic, the lecturers are very involved and their English helps me improve mine. It is a tough subject that takes a certain commitment, but that truly pays off.

    I read a very interesting quote in one of our readers, that has stuck with me ever since: 'Artificial Intelligence is one of the newest fields in science and engineering. (…) A student in physics might reasonably feel that all the good ideas have been taken by Galileo, Newton, Einstein and the rest. AI, on the other hand, still has openings for several full-time Einsteins and Edisons

    Programming has made me think more analytically

    The main reason I chose AI is that it is very broad and covers a multitude of subjects in different fields. It's perfect since I am widely interested and I didn't want to commit to one specific field.

    The subjects I enjoyed most are logic, cognitive psychology and linguistics. I like the way logic and programming have made me think more analytically. Programming has been hard for me though, especially persevering with an assignment when all hope seems to be lost. This is something I am still working on.

    In my free time I like to play and listen to music and have drinks at my LGBT-student association Ganymedes. I also do committee work there, as I enjoy being an active member.
