Master in Artificial Intelligence

You are here

This master was created as a synergy between the Barcelona School of Informatics of the UPC, the School of Engineering of the Rovira i Virgili University (URV) and the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Barcelona (UB) as an interuniversity master. Artificial Intelligence research is interdisciplinary by nature and draws on computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology, neuroscience, cognitive science, linguistics, ethics, psychology and law. The master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence offers you an integrative and cutting-edge approach to the field and its application to real scenarios. Research in AI at the consortium of Catalan universities supporting this program spans knowledge representation and reasoning, machine learning, natural language processing, autonomous agents, computer vision robotics, and visualization. The emphasis is on practical techniques—and a solid theoretical background—for designing and constructing intelligent systems, enabling graduates from this course to apply their skills in a variety of settings. These skills are in high demand in the market. As a graduate of this program you will have the skills to carry out AI research in academic and R&D environments and to identify how AI techniques can provide intelligent solutions to IT problems in companies and organizations.

The lectures of this master take place in the three participating universities: UB and UPC, which sit in Barcelona, while URV sits in Tarragona and requires mobility by the students.
