About the course

Learn how to create artificial information systems that mimic biological systems as well as how to use theoretical insights from AI to better understand cognitive processing in humans.

The human brain is a hugely complex machine that is able to perform tasks that are vastly beyond current capabilities of artificial systems. Understanding the brain has always been a source of inspiration for developing artificially intelligent agents and has led to some of the defining moments in the history of AI. At the same time, theoretical insights from artificial intelligence provide new ways to understand and probe neural information processing in biological systems.

On the one hand, the Master’s in Cognitive Computing addresses how models based on neural information processing can be used to develop

Student Profile(s)

Francesco Sgaramella

After obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Software Engineering at the University of Bari, in Italy, I decided to go abroad for a Master’s programme in a field that is fascinating me and which is not being given the due consideration in Italy: Artificial Intelligence.

I started searching for other Italians who decided to go abroad and finally a student in Stockholm gave me advice about going to study in the Netherlands due to their excellent facilities and willingness to give more opportunities to young students. The name of Radboud University popped up in a Google search about “excellent Dutch universities”.

My application was accepted and I attended an interview . Afterwards, I was already in love with this university. The professors were really kind to me and they were helpful and available at any time I desired.

I joined the Orientation Week in which I had the first touch with other cultures and the Dutch one. Of course I was shocked, since the cultures I met were really different from the Italian one that I was used to. I consider this as the first step to grow as a person and to get some challenges: new culture, people, city, language and educational system.

Regarding my studies, what I like the most is the disposability from my professors to give me help at any time and supply me with the most advanced machinery and robots in order to reach the highest level of research in my studies. Nevertheless, there still some details of my studies that are weak points for Radboud. For example, in my studies there are not that many international students, and it can be difficult to make friendship in a group of people that know each other from their Bachelor’s degree, or even high school. So I had to make friends outside of the study context, which is nothing bad, but, in my opinion, it is better to have both friends from studies and friends outside that context.

In my future there are going to be even more challenges, so that is why I would like to get a PhD position in Robotics at Radboud University, or if not possible, in another Dutch university. I am 100% sure that the studies here at Radboud helped me a lot in increasing my knowledge and prepare myself for a job position.
