Course Summary

The study of natural and artificial intelligent and adaptive systems is at the heart of rapidly developing areas. These range from artificial intelligence and autonomous robotics to neuroscience, consciousness, and cognitive science.

This MSc prepares you for research and development in intelligent and adaptive systems. You'll cover theoretical issues and practical techniques for their design and implementation.

You can choose to organise your studies around one of these areas:

  • artificial intelligence and cognitive modelling
  • robotics and autonomous systems
  • data science, machine learning and natural language processing
  • computational biology and consciousness science.

You will learn from experts at the forefront of their fields. We host the Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems Research Group, the Data Science Research Group and the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science. We also have many successful business collaborations.

Careers

There’s strong employer demand for skilled people in artificial intelligence and data science. The UK Government’s Digital Strategy predicts that within 20 years, 90% of all jobs will require some element of digital skills.

Our graduates have gone on to careers in software development, systems analysis and technical communication. A high proportion of our graduates go on to undertake research degrees at Sussex and other prestigious universities.

Modules

The module Adaptive Systems aims to provide you with an understanding of various adaptive processes occurring in both the animal and physical worlds and to equip them with theoretical and practical tools to study and develop such adaptive mechanisms.
