WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Acquire strong basic knowledge in data and artificial intelligence

Asset n°2

Conduct a research project

Asset n°3

Learn from renowned faculty members

The two-year Data and Artificial Intelligence Master’s program covers artificial intelligence (AI) and large-scale data management. Students will acquire the basics of machine learning, logic, big data systems and databases, before diving into applications in advanced machine learning, symbolic AI, swarm intelligence, natural language processing, visual computing, and robotics.

Students can choose from a wide range of courses including mining large datasets, big data processing systems, reinforcement learning, GPU programming, semantic networks, cognitive modeling, self-organizing multi-agent systems, autonomous navigation for robots, text mining and image understanding, as well as social issues in AI.

This first-year program provides students with core knowledge and requires them to conduct a research project.

Objectives

The Master’s program enables students to:

  • Acquire the fundamental knowledge, technical skills and concrete applied methodologies to make machines more intelligent
  • Gain experience in using and developing data-supported smart services and tools for data-driven decision-making, while also exploring technical and scientific challenges in processing large data and knowledge
  • Solve theoretical and applied problems, present their work in oral presentations and written reports, analyze a bibliography and identify open research directions, work independently and in a team, identify and seek appropriate resources for advancing their work

Students who successfully complete the 2-year program will be able to:

  • Embark on a research career in robotics, image processing, machine learning, web technologies, social web, data analytics, big data management, knowledge base management, information extraction, information retrieval, databases, data warehousing, knowledge representation, and distributed data management
  • Pursue a PhD at Institut Polytechnique de Paris
  • Build a career in industry, especially in research and development departments

To validate the M1 year, a student must accomplish all of the following:

  • validate two research projects, each awarded 5 ECTS
  • acquire a total of at least 50 ECTS in courses with at least 40 courses in Data AI courses

All Data AI courses are 24h, count 2.5 ECTS, and are validated by labs, presentations and/or exams. A course is validated when the student obtains a grade of 10/20 or higher.

In both cases, students must find a DataAI lecturer to supervise their projects. Each of the two projects counts for 5 ECTS and represents about 10 days of work, spread out throughout the semester. The first project needs to be completed by the beginning of February.
