Machine Intelligence

Intelligent computer systems must be able to adapt to different situations or different users. Thus, for example, an intelligent information system must provide information and services that are personalised for an individual user; an intelligent computer game must be able to adapt its behavior according to the profile of the human player; an autonomous robot must adapt to new environments and unforeseen tasks. An important foundation for the design of such intelligent systems are techniques to work with incomplete information and unreliable inputs, and to automatically learn from experience and data.

The Machine Intelligence master's programme enables students to design, implement and analyse intelligent systems. Particular emphasis is placed on probabilistic methods for intelligent decision making and learning, and on techniques for intelligent web-based systems. Courses provide the necessary foundation in Machine Intelligence as well as other core subjects for a graduate level computer science education. A significant part of the studies consists of projects conducted in small groups of students. A project will typically include more in-depth study of particular methods and techniques, and their practical application, e.g., in computer game design, intelligent web-based services, or data mining.

The programme is managed by the Machine Intelligence Group, an internationally recognised research group with core research areas in uncertainty in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and web intelligence.


From 1st September 2017, this programme will be merged with three other programmes:

The new programme will be called Computer Science (it) and will feature parts of all four programmes. As soon as possible, we will publish a description of the new programme here at www.studyguide.aau.dk. The programme will be taught in English.
