The Bachelor's programme in Artificial Intelligence; something for you?
To come and study Artificial Intelligence you must be interested in the interaction between humans and computers. In order to build smart computers and robots, knowledge about the human brain is useful. For example, if you know how people recognise faces, you can use this knowledge to develop a passport photo scanner. This also works in reverse; by imitating brain processes using computer models, you learn more about how the mind works.
The requirements for passport photos are very strict. For example, your ears must be visible, you have to take off your spectacles and you must look straight at the camera. This is necessary because what you see at a single glance – matching a person to their passport photo – is a more complicated puzzle for a computer to solve. People are champions in rapidly recognising and detecting patterns – regardless of whether it is faces, letters or sounds. How do they do that? How can we program machines to do this as easily? These are the kind of issues the Bachelor's programme in Artificial Intelligence tackles.

Artificial Intelligence is becoming increasingly present in the world around us, often without us being aware of it. For example, AI is used to build intelligent brain-machine interfaces to help restore vision in the blind, and to build brain-inspired systems that drive the next generation of robots and self-driving cars. You can also find AI in face and emotion recognition, computer games and cameras that detect street violence. Furthermore, Artificial Intelligence can also be used to develop smart apps for tablets and smartphones, to prepare flight schedules for aircrafts, and to develop new machine learning algorithms to improve healthcare in hospitals. In the future, the use of Artificial Intelligence will increase even further. This means that your career prospects are extremely favourable. Many students are hired even before they graduate.
After you have completed your studies and specialised in Artificial Intelligence, you will be well equipped for any number of positions when you enter the job market. You could find yourself working in any of a wide range of sectors, including education, healthcare, telecommunications, ICT, (crime scene) investigations, transport or financial services – in short, wherever there is a need for intelligent systems. In addition to a job in the commercial sector, your thorough academic training will allow you the option of working as a researcher at a university or research institute in the Netherlands or abroad. Examples of jobs: data scientist, developer, advisor, innovation manager, or scientific researcher.
The university offers various ways to familiarise with the labour market so you can start early, during your study, finding out about career possibilities. Our Radboud University Career Service offers career guidance and skills training. You can also visit their office if you wish to gain some practical experience by doing an internship at a company or institute. For many students this is a valuable stepping stone to a first job.
