AI is science and art combining in the pursuit of progress. It’s Siri, Alexa, your recommended playlists on Spotify. It’s an AI-powered robo-medic to help doctors save lives, chatbots and neural network art. A new generation of real-life jobs are needed to manage AI, and to understand it across a myriad of different industries and sectors. To creatively manage it and to add your uniquely human intelligence will make you an indispensable member of the future work force. Future-proof your career prospects with our innovative Applied AI degree. The course is built around current and predicted industry requirements. It explores the complexities and potential for AI technologies and teaches the knowledge and skills needed to create innovative solutions. In the first year, students will work in teams to develop a number of different AI solutions. They will build a biometric recognition system (e.g: face or fingerprint recognition), a user profiling system (making recommendations to users or identifying potential fraud based on user data) and a system to analyse real-time data (e.g: real-time traffic information). The second year will allow students to work in a specialised area, which could include the design of healthcare diagnostic systems, the analysis of company credit card ratings, or the development of a virtual healthcare assistant. In the final year, students will work with an industry client and gain experience of developing cutting-edge AI solutions to solve real-life problems. The course will appeal to students with an interest in one or more of the following: computing, technology, engineering, mathematics, science, and design.
