Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh will offer an undergraduate degree program in artificial intelligence through the School of Computer Science this fall.
The university is among the top schools in this field, with programs in AI going back to the 1950’s.
The AI program will include the same computer science and math courses as other students in the school, but will “focus more on how complex inputs — such as vision, language and huge databases — are used to make decisions or enhance human capabilities,” a statement from a school official explains.
Course work will focus on “AI-related subjects such as statistics and probability, computational modeling, machine learning, and symbolic computation.”
Additionally, the program will consider ethics and social responsibility, including using AI to improve “transportation, health care or education.”
The Milwaukee School of Engineering will also offer a computer science degree focused on artificial intelligence beginning this fall.
