About the Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence

 

Well aware of the development issues at stake in the area of artificial intelligence, three partners have created a unique Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence: The Idiap Research Institute, the Swiss Distance Learning University and the Canton of Valais.

On one hand, today's businesses desperately need skilled talents and knowledge in order to develop their potential in artificial intelligence and plan the future. On the other hand, universities do not yet provide training programmes that fulfil these needs. This new, unique Master combines top theoretical training, most of which takes place online, with the development of a professional on-the-job project.

 

A unique partnership

The Idiap Research Institute, Swiss Distance Learning University and the Canton of Valais have partnered together to present the very first professional Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence. It is supported by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs.

This master equally meets the needs of companies to acquire talent in the area of artificial intelligence, of skilled professionals to further their career and of students to specialize in this area.

Starting in February 2019, the programme already involves key industrial partners who intend to open several positions linked with the course.
