"ISP gives me opportunities to fulfill my ambitions toward machine learning-related research in multdisciplinary applications, and to work in a friendly, cooperative environment."
Mahdi Pakdaman, student
The Program offers the Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Science degrees. Students may pursue either the broader area of artificial intelligence or the specialized track in biomedical informatics. Both are geared toward providing students opportunities to pursue advanced education and research in areas such as:
Formal studies of learning and reasoning, including default reasoning and induction, reasoning with uncertain information, machine learning, planning, machine diagnosis, human cognition, and applications of these theories.
Experimental testing and validation of systems in applications such as diagnosis and planning.
The nature of interactions between people and information processing tools ranging along the spectrum of tutors (human or computer), diagnosis machines, databases, and programming environments.
Case-based reasoning, and applications of case-based reasoning, especially in legal domains and in tutoring applications.
Computational linguistics, and especially natural language understanding, understanding of discourse and discourse pragmatics, and dialog systems.
Technologies related to the above foci, such as expert systems, knowledge management, case-based reasoning, or machine learning.
Briefly, an application consists of the standard Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences admission forms, available online or in hard copy, together with the following materials:
Applicants to the Biomedical Informatics track of the Intelligent Systems Program must specifically indicate their interest in this track on their application to the Intelligent Systems Program. They must also submit an application to the Department of Biomedical Informatics in addition to submitting an application to the Intelligent Systems Program.
