Artificial Intelligence

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.
