Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere now, and its importance is only going to grow. The media is full of it: AlphaGo, robots, driverless cars, etc. We all use AI technology each and every day. Searching with Google, recommendations on Netflix and Amazon, language recognition with Siri, machine translations, spam filters; all of these are a part of our everyday lives. Science and healthcare too would be unimaginable without artificial intelligence nowadays. Image recognition, diagnostic support tools, predictive models and other innovations provided by artificial intelligence are crucial in all areas of society. As an academic discipline, artificial intelligence holds the future – and could shape your future career. Studying AI at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is your route to success.
