Artificial Intelligence
Graduate Major

Ultra-smart society ushered in
by next-generation artificial intelligence

The Graduate Major in Artificial Intelligence aims to cultivate individuals who have the ability to look at the field of computing from a higher perspective and see the direction of new developments. We want students to strive to find appropriate solutions to complicated real-world problems by applying multiple disciplines, then build advanced artificial intelligence systems and services which will contribute to the development of society.

Objectives

Producing leaders in the field of
artificial intelligence

In the Master's Program, we aim to foster individuals who possess a wide range of basic expertise related to artificial intelligence, such as basic mathematical science, computation theory, and modeling, and can apply these specialized abilities to solve difficult problems by collaborating with members of differing backgrounds and different areas of expertise.
In the Doctoral Program, we aim to develop individuals who have the ability to apply their expertise in artificial intelligence, define complicated real-world problems precisely, and lead a team of members of differing backgrounds and specialties to solve problems.
