Artificial Intelligence

Be part of a Programme with Excellent Reviews

Most of the teachers in the Master's programme also participate as researcher in the research institute ALICE: Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering. The content of the courses taught are closely linked to the research themes of the teachers.

The research in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Engineering is inherently interdisciplinary in nature. With Computing Science, an interest in formal modeling is shared, where these models may be symbolic, statistical or hybrid in nature. With Psychology and Biology an interest in natural cognition is shared, where the goal is to describe fundamental qualities of cognition in such an explicit way that computational models of perceptual, cognitive, and behavioural control functions can be constructed. The research program of ALICE covers three interrelated areas in Artificial Intelligence:

- Cognitive Modeling
- Multi-Agent Systems
- Autonomous Perceptive Systems

    Using my knowledge in my future work

    'I came to Groningen for the Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence because of the practical approach: half of the courses I followed involved practical cases, which form a big part of each course.

    This works perfect for me because we are given the chance to immediately test and play with all the knowledge which is handed to us. This approach boosts the learning of a subject. It is great to have the opportunity to discover and deepen the understanding of a concept thanks to a supervised project.

    I particularly focused my courses on robotics. Thanks to the Alice Robotics department I had the opportunity to use the robots of the Robolab, with which I did many projects.

    Coming close to the end of my Master’s degree, I will probably start working in a robotic-related company. Autonomous navigation systems has always been one of my particular interests, and after the possibility to study and practice those systems in the Robolab, I'm looking forward to using my knowledge in my future work.’

    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.
