The University of Georgia has always viewed Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence as interdisciplinary fields where computer science meets philosophy, psychology, linguistics, engineering and other disciplines. Both fields are devoted to the study of cognition and intelligent systems. Artificial Intelligence is particularly interested in creating computer systems that behave intelligently.
The Institute for Artificial Intelligence is an interdepartmental research and instructional unit within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Georgia. It offers two degree programs:
In addition, the Institute participates in two combined undergraduate/graduate programs, allowing a student to earn within 5 years either an AB in Cognitive science or a BS in Computer science as well as MS in Artificial Intelligence.
The Institute's strengths include logic programming, expert systems, neural nets, genetic algorithms, natural language processing and computational psycholinguistics. Affiliated with the Institute are over 75 people from over 10 different countries. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our student body and the ability of our programs to allow for the pursuit of personal research interests.
