Program description

MSc in Human-Centred Big Data and Artificial Intelligence

You will be trained in adventurous and exciting computational science, working on real-world challenges that will transform society and the economy. While there are valid concerns about what impact big data and artificial intelligence might have on individuals, communities, jobs and society, this programfocuses on human potential, needs, desires and cares, and how these motivations can be used to drive innovation.

You will undertake your major project in collaboration with one of our world-class partners (including Google, Facebook, NHS, Tata Steel, Ford, Microsoft and many more), and also take part in a range of additional skill-enhancing activities such as sandpits, retreats and focused training events. As part of a close-knit cohort, students will learn human-centred methods, grounded in a broad range of theoretical, experimental, domain and methodological perspectives to understand how these can amplify and enhance human potential in big data and AI.
