Applied Artificial Intelligence tools are becoming a larger presence in our everyday lives, and will continue to do so for years to come.

Many of us use them without even realizing it, when talking to chatbots, and for many, the interactions with personal digital assistants such as Alexa or Siri have become second nature.

But AI offers so much more; it’s the key to groundbreaking technologies that are expected to completely change our lives, like self-driving cars.

Companies who will act fast and incorporate this technology in their business strategy, have a real chance of taking over entire market shares. That’s where you, as a future AI specialist, come into the picture.

Once you’ve acquired knowledge of speech and image processing, machine learning, robotics, UI/UX and software development, your expertise will make you a strong candidate for positions in many international tech leaders.

Earn your internationally recognised Applied Artificial Intelligence Bachelor from IU University of Applied Sciences, and get ready for exciting opportunities!
