Master specialization Intelligent systems

Recognizing objects in the surrounding, understanding speech and written text, communicating in language, analysing problems, taking decisions, making plans for the future, and artistic expression are elements of human intelligence. In many cases these elements can be mimicked on a computer and even developed further. A computer can, for instance, recognize a person by the pattern of his iris or fingerprint and can take a decision whether to let this person pass a border. A computer can also speak to a human to give, for example, navigation instructions. It can support a physician in the process of setting a diagnosis or a lawyer in finding legal information appropriate for a given case. The specialization Intelligent Systems concerns the ways in which artificial systems can be provided with elements of intelligence. The specialization includes courses in computer vision, neural networks, machine learning, pattern recognition and knowledge representation. Optional courses can be followed in visualization, natural language processing, neuroscience and robotics. Project work is either embedded in the research activities of the department or other universities with which the department collaborates, or externally in industry, where intelligent systems are becoming more and more important.
