Wired for Artificial Intelligence?

How can you develop an autonomous car? How does a computer recognize speech and emotions? How can software and devices be aligned to the way in which humans think?

Test whether the Artificial Intelligence bachelor's program fits you with this free online 4-week online study programme offered by the Scholierenacademie of the University of Groningen. In the web classes you experience - at home, from behind your own computer - the content, work forms and atmosphere of this bachelor. Our tutors are ready to provide you with personal feedback.

The bachelor Artificial Intelligence is an interdisciplinary programme that focuses on human thinking, artificial thinking (computers, robots) and behaviour in social systems (e.g. group behaviour) in order to predict and simulate behaviour.

This web class shows you the diversity of the field of Artificial Intelligence by exploring four important areas of AI. During the first week you are going to find out what intelligence really is by asking yourselves some philosophical questions. The second week is more technical; you will learn what an algorithm is and how you can use one to determine your way in a maze. Human intelligence and interaction between human and system are the central subjects of week three. And… To top it all off, in the last week you will combine all your acquired knowledge to find out what it takes to design a robot.
