Advanced School in AI

This is a postgraduate Advanced School (Italian: “Scuola Avanzata, post laurea specialistica”) designed to meet the fast-growing demand of the job market for new skills and competencies related to advanced fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and relevant for the economy, research system, administration, and society.

The School aims to form a new generation of highly specialised professionals and researchers in the innovative fields of AI and Machine Learning (in particular deep neural networks), and of computational modelling of brain, behaviour, and society (Computational Embodied Neuroscience, Computational Social Science). These topics do not cover the several topics encompassed by Artificial Intelligence, but are a starting point building on the core competences of the research and professional network supporting the School.

The key distinguishing element of the School is the interdisciplinary investigation and use of artificial and natural intelligence for research and application purposes. This is be based on:

  • Courses related to both technological applications of AI and machine learning and research on brain, behaviour and society
  • A real-life student-centered project involving either an innovative Company or an outstanding Research Center
  • A stimulating environment involving both researchers and professionals from companies
  • A highly motivated interdisciplinary class group
