What is Artificial Intelligence? AI seeks to simulate intelligence and apply the resulting algorithms to solve real-life problems. AI professionals are in huge demand in fields including health, finance, transport and energy, as well as in neuroscience.
On City's MSc in Artificial Intelligence, you learn advanced AI technology and how to apply it to problems in data classification, prediction and forecasting, optimization, as well as in computational modelling of learning and behaviour.
Our focus is on the most commercially applicable form of AI, known as Deep Learning - developing adaptable artificial neural networks (ANNs) that replicate how the brain works. You also explore the wider issues of ethics, accountability and trust that surround AI and how "Explainable AI" is used to interpret the functioning of complex ANNs.
The course is hands-on, using the new world-class City AI Lab, which provides the latest computers, tools and technologies, and the GPU power needed for Deep Learning. Here, as part of your project work and in preparation for employment or future research, students work on how to apply AI to real-world problems, with active researchers in AI.
