Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field of computer science that enables computers and machines to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence. Its many applications range from chess-playing robots and autonomous cars to speech, image, and language processing, robotic manufacturing, and surveillance systems. In the twenty-first century, AI has experienced a resurgence following concurrent advances in computer power, large amounts of data, and theoretical understanding. AI techniques have now become an essential part of the technology industry, helping to solve many challenging problems in computer science.
This master’s programme provides a technical deep-dive into the area of AI. It aims to produce AI engineers with a highly relevant skillset in AI topics. Students will learn how to use and develop intelligent computer systems that can learn from experience, recognise patterns in vast amounts of data and reason strategically in complex decision-making situations. The programme content will deliver a comprehensive range of topics integral to the study of AI. These include machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, optimisation, and big data processing to name but a few.
The programme contains challenging and interesting modules delivered by lecturers who are experts in AI. Students will be presented with opportunities to work on industry focused projects and research opportunities linked to the domain expertise of each lecturer. Staff in the Department of Computer Science have built an excellent national and international record in the application of AI and Machine Learning research in sectors ranging from renewable energy to life science. Research funding has been provided by Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Irish Research Council, Health Research Board, and the European Commission.
