Future emerging technologies will provide both interactivity and intelligence. The master's programme in Intelligent Interactive Systems (IIS) addresses both trends, focusing on the design, analysis and development of agents and robots able to interact intelligently with humans and other agents, that is, agents that can perceive, plan, act, learn and communicate.
The programme's lecturers are world-renowned scientists in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics, machine learning, natural language interaction and web intelligence. Students will learn about the languages, models and algorithms involved in intelligent interactive systems and will be exposed to top-level research in the field.
