This online MSc in Artificial Intelligence is ideal if you are motivated by the challenges and infinite possibilities of advancing AI. It is designed to give professionals from computer science – as well as a host of other disciplines – the opportunity to specialise in AI and meet the increasing demand for experts in this exciting, future-focused, and rapidly growing specialism.

At the forefront of human progress In recent years, Artificial Intelligence is significantly more closely connected with human progress and societal change. It calls on new and powerful data algorithms to ensure that intelligent machines work in closer collaboration with us than ever before.

AI is evolving at a rapid pace. It has a broad application across a variety of business functions, including marketing and policymaking, finance, and healthcare. This online MSc also addresses the ethical implications of advancing machine intelligence, and related issues around transparency and accountability. These are factors that have previously been overlooked by many in the rush to extend the possibilities of technology.

“I have enjoyed greatly sections on ethics, natural language processing and machine learning. It is the key concepts that underline these technologies that are of importance to my current role. Data products that we are building will benefit greatly from these technologies.

As a mature student, being emersed back into academia has been mind-opening: learning new concepts and ideas, rather than the employment-focused ongoing improvement of existing ideas and processes.” Jeremy Green – Artificial Intelligence online MSc student
