Human-centered Artificial Intelligence Master's Programme
No fees are charged for EU and EEA citizens, Swedish residence permit holders and exchange students.
In this education, we address issues related to sustainability. The content of the course or program fits into at least one of our 10 sustainability criteria. For you as a student, the sustainability label means guidance, quality assurance, and a guarantee that courses or programs contain a pronounced sustainability perspective.
The program provides students with an in-depth understanding of how AI is transforming society and gives them the skills necessary to take leading roles in that transformation. Through a close relationship with innovative multidisciplinary research, the program offers students a broad theoretical foundation for analyzing the implications of AI and through close connections to industry, the public sector, and civil society, the program offers students practical skills for managing AI-driven change in complex environments.
Artificial Intelligence creates radically new conditions for both individuals and society at large. It brings completely new possibilities but also new challenges where existing ways of working, understanding, and communicating are fundamentally changed.
Making sense of these possibilities and challenges is crucial to ensuring that the development and implementation of AI can be shaped in ways that are sustainable and can contribute to solving rather than worsening global societal challenges.
A human outlook on AI
In the program, students learn to take a human-centered approach that brings the individual and social aspects of human-AI interactions into focus so that AI can be implemented responsibly. This involves considering individual, interactional, organizational, social, and ethical aspects of the use of a particular AI solution in a particular context whether that be a decision process at a government agency, diagnosis support at a hospital, film recommendations online, or grading of exams at school.
A multidisciplinary area
The program offers a unique environment for future UX designers, developers, researchers, business developers, policy analysts, and compliance officers looking to specialize in Human-centered Artificial Intelligence.
As the field of HCAI is multidisciplinary, students come into contact and engage with leading researchers across several subject areas including Human-computer Interaction, Information Systems, Cognition Science, Applied IT, and Data Science.
The pedagogical approach taken encourages active participation where students are expected to engage in discussion and hands-on activities while documenting their progression through a portfolio of work that shows both their learning in the field of HCAI and the development of their own interests. These interests can then be further explored through a research-based thesis and the opportunity to undertake an internship within a research group or at a company or organization.
The program is found at the vibrant Campus Lindholmen, a technological hub with a large industry presence including such companies and organizations as Zenseact, RISE, Ericsson, and Volvo, to name a few.
