UCL Centre for Artificial Intelligence



The Centre runs a range of programmes including PhD and Masters programmes in Machine Learning and related topics in AI

UCL has a proud history of excellence in AI education. Our view that is that understanding the scientific and mathematical principles behind AI is important. Rather than training students to just use existing AI tools, we train them to have the capability to create new AI algorithms.

This gives students a depth of understanding and the capability to lead others, making effective bespoke solutions to complex challenges.
