A strong foundation in mathematical knowledge and technical skills is essential for the development of modern Artificial Intelligence systems. This course will equip you to work in this exciting field. Large and growing streams of data are ubiquitous in modern society and form the backbone of modern healthcare, public safety, services and science. Sustained functioning and progress in these essential areas depend on the ability to extract and process information from large and growing data. Since processing overwhelmingly large volumes of data can no longer be accomplished by humans alone, we must rely on Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems built on state-of-the-art machine learning and data analytics technologies. AI systems have evolved dramatically in recent years; from being the subject of academic research with only focused and highly specialised practical uses, to the level of commonly accepted and widely-used technology. Industrial giants such as Google, Amazon, IBM and Microsoft have already embraced the new technology and are offering a broad and rapidly expanding range of AI-based services, including intelligent image and sound processing and recognition. Maintaining and developing these services in the years to come will require a significant pool of suitably educated expertise. The BSc in Mathematics and AI addresses these market needs by offering a prestigious training programme aimed at delivering AI graduates with a solid background in mathematics, modelling, computational and digital skills. The University of Leicester has a strong teaching and research track record in these areas, with academic staff in Mathematics and Informatics producing high-quality research in collaboration with leading industries.
