New MSc Intelligent Systems
- -----------------

The School of Computing and Technology, University of Sunderland
is delighted to announce the launch of its new MSc Intelligent Systems
programme for 24th February. Building on the School's leading edge
research in intelligent systems this masters programme will be
funded via the ESF scheme (see below).

Intelligent Systems is an exciting field of study for science and
industry since the currently existing computing systems have
often not yet reached the various aspects of human performance.
"Intelligent Systems" is a term to describe software systems and
methods, which simulate aspects of intelligent behaviour. The intention
is to learn from nature and human performance in order to build more
powerful computing systems. The aim is to learn from cognitive science,
neuroscience, biology, engineering, and linguistics for building more
powerful computational system architectures. In this programme a
wide variety of novel and exciting techniques will be taught including
neural networks, intelligent robotics, machine learning, natural language
processing, vision, evolutionary genetic computing, data mining,
information retrieval, Bayesian computing, knowledge-based systems,
fuzzy methods, and hybrid intelligent architectures.

Programme Structure
- ------------
The following lectures/modules are available:

Neural Networks
Intelligent Systems Architectures
Learning Agents
Evolutionary Computation
Cognitive Neural Science
Knowledge Based Systems and Data Mining
Bayesian Computation
Vision and Intelligent Robots
Natural Language Processing
Dynamics of Adaptive Systems
Intelligent Systems Programming

Funding up to 6000 pounds (9500Euro) for eligible students
- ----------------------------

The Bursary Scheme applies to this Masters programme commencing
February 2003 and we have obtained funding through the European
Social Fund (ESF). ESF support enables the University to waive the
normal tuition fee and provide a bursary of � 75 per week for 45 weeks
for eligible EU students, together up to 6000 pounds.
