Start your Master's online study programme in Artificial Intelligence now
Both society and numerous companies are currently facing enormous changes. The reason for this is the rapid advance of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Many decisions that accompany us at work and in everyday life are already supported or automated by Artificial Intelligence. Two areas can be distinguished under the term "Artificial Intelligence": On the one hand, there is general AI, which behaves similarly to humans, and on the other hand, specific AI, which even surpasses human intelligence in individual issues. While the development of a general form of Artificial Intelligence is still pending, specific forms of Artificial Intelligence have already achieved a number of notable successes, e.g. in Medicine and Merchandise Management.
The Artificial Intelligence online study programme is broad-based and provides in-depth knowledge in Machine Learning. Within the 60 ECTS variant of the study programme, you have the opportunity to acquire specific knowledge in the areas of Computer-Based Speech and Image Processing, Intelligent Production in Industry 4.0 or Autonomous Vehicles. The 120 ECTS variant also offers further specialisation options.
