The Artificial Intelligence master programme at Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) is integrated with laboratory works where students have the possibility to use real robots and to practice with state of the art tools and methodologies. 

After the first few lectures of the basic Machine Learning course, AI master students will already know how to train self-learning artificial neural networks to recognize the images and handwritings to the right better than any other known method.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most popular areas in computer science and engineering. AI deals with intelligent behavior, learning, and adaptation in machines, robots and body-less computer programs. 

AI is everywhere: search engines use it to improve answers to queries, to recognize speech, to translate languages, email programs use it to filter spam, banks use it to predict exchange rates and stock markets, doctors use it to recognize tumors, robots use it to localize themselves and obstacles, autonomous cars use it to drive, video games use it to enhance the player's experience, adaptive telescopes use it to improve image quality, smartphones use it to recognize objects / faces / gestures / voices / music, etc etc.

Career Prospects

Students graduating from this program will develop a taste for working on complex problems. 

In their future careers they will be able to apply their knowledge in many interdisciplinary areas including  robotics, business forecasting, intelligent search, video games, music and entertainment, chat bots, medical diagnostics, self-driving cars, to name a few.
