The digital transformation of organisations and society is in full swing, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) playing an increasingly significant role. Furthermore, the EU AI Act dramatically alters the market rules for AI systems and services, impacting EU and non-EU manufacturers, importers, distributors, authorised representatives, operators, and users. One primary objective of the Act is to ensure the safety and compliance with existing EU law on fundamental rights for AI systems placed on the EU market and used within the EU. This way, we ensure that ‘the human’ is respected in practice and the design of AI is human-centric.

In the MSc in Computing (Human Centred AI) programme at Technological University Dublin, you learn how to build and apply AI, and how to deal with the societal choices that come with it. The programme provides student-centric learning through interactive sessions, tutorials and practicals on AI trustworthiness, AI ethics, and how AI can be designed and socially harmonious. This course has been developed by a consortium of ten organisations across European Universities, Excellence Centres and Small and Medium Enterprises. European Activity includes a joint week spent working on Project ideas with industry and research partners in Utrecht annually.

I joined this programme as I was working as a Tech Consultant and wanted to upskill. This was the perfect opportunity for me to pursue a master's in AI with an intersectional edge and human-centric values. My experience so far has been very positive. We have been trained to focus on the broader picture concerning AI development. The Lecturers are always open to discussions on questions raised in class, and it's been really rewarding so far.

I decided to take this course because I have experience in data analysis, and I'm interested in its interdisciplinary approach, especially the ethical aspects of artificial intelligence. Furthermore, this course prioritises hands-on AI application through continuous assessments and practical assignments, offering exposure to real-world AI implementations. The course emphasises human-centred AI, ensuring that AI development aligns with societal values.

I chose this master for the strong focus on ethics and the social impact of AI. The program's interdisciplinary nature gives you an edge compared to other AI students; we can evaluate current popular AI tools and methods from different perspectives (technical and ethical). The small class sizes allow for open discussions and close communication with your professors. Another advantage of this program is the strong connection with the industry and the many opportunities to network with these professionals, such as the international IP-week, Ethicon, and during collaborations on your master thesis.
