About

This MPhil in Machine Learning and Machine Intelligence at the University of Cambridge is a 12-month, taught from within our Information Engineering Division, with a unique, joint emphasis on both machine learning and machine intelligence, including speech and language technology and computer vision.

Overview

The MPhil in Machine Learning and Machine Intelligence at the University of Cambridge aims to teach the state of the art in machine learning and machine intelligence; to give students the skills and expertise necessary to take leading roles in industry; and to equip students with the research skills necessary for doctoral study.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme, students will have acquired:
  • a knowledge of the fundamental techniques in machine learning and how to apply these techniques to a range of practical problems;
  • a deep understanding of fundamental problems in machine intelligence, including speech and language processing and computer vision,  and the technologies that form the current state of the art;
  • a comprehensive understanding of techniques, and a thorough knowledge of the literature, applicable to the area of their chosen research topic;
  • presentation skills through presenting their research in progress;
  • the methodological and other technical skills necessary for research in their chosen area;
  • the ability to critically assess the technical literature in machine learning and machine intelligence and related topics;
  • directly marketable skills in computing, machine intelligence, machine learning, and the data sciences;
  • collaborative skills through working with other students on the practical exercises and with PhD students and research assistants while carrying out their research project;
  • experience in large-scale computing for machine learning and machine intelligence; and
  • an understanding of how to define and conduct a research project.

Continuing

Students wishing to apply for continuation to the PhD would normally be expected to attain an overall mark of 70 per cent.

Programme Structure

Teaching
  • Students will spend the Michaelmas and Lent terms undertaking taught course modules. There will be an equivalent of ten full core modules, in addition to an elective option which can be chosen from a broad variety of modules. 
  • From mid-Lent term through the end of the course, students will conduct a substantial research project leading to a dissertation.
  • The taught modules will be in a range of styles: traditional lecture courses, lecture courses with associated practical classes, reading clubs, and seminar-style modules. The course will emphasise coursework in several of the taught modules. 
  • Software projects aimed at implementing algorithms and modelling methods will be central to the practical modules and the research project.
