Course summary


The option to study philosophical issues of AI whilst pursuing a Master’s level computing degree is a unique offering in the UK, allowing students the opportunity to delve on the technical as well as the societal impact of data processing and, in particular, machine learning applications.

The programme allows students to progressively develop their understanding of the techniques of data science, machine learning, and natural language processing, alongside key concepts and methods of computer science, while honing their programming skills in Python and Java; and, at the same time, refine their thinking and communication skills, through humanities courses devoted to a consideration of key practical and theoretical issues, arising in connection with AI.

Teaching & learning

The MSc Artificial Intelligence with a Human Face will be delivered through a mixture of lectures, seminars, lab-based tutorials and office hours.

Students who are enrolled full-time should anticipate devoting approximately 35-40 hours per week to their studies for the duration of their degree. In Michaelmas and Hilary terms, this will include approximately six to seven formal contact hours per week, with the remainder consisting of structured independent study.

Career Opportunities

Artificial Intelligence and, more specifically, the application of machine learning techniques to big data sets is becoming increasingly prevalent in society. There is an increasing need in the tech and public sector for graduates who can not only develop machine learning applications well, but who can also understand the issues that arise in relation to such applications; and who can communicate technical and societal issues clearly.
