Artificial Intelligence (AI) is taking the world by storm, but it is more then just a trend.

In the past decades we have seen companies slowly being turned into software companies. Now áll companies in some way will become AI companies. What we need are people who understand the importance and possible impact of AI on their own (future) work. And thus can help shape this future.

In this minor you will learn the basics of AI and bridging this to your own education and expertise. How you reach your learning outcomes is up to you. If you want to dive into coding and learn Python, this is possible, but teaching a machine something with data can be done in ‘no-code’ ways (without ány programming skills) like Teachable Machine from Google.This minor will prepare you for a future with AI, where you not only speak and understand the AI language, but where you can use you combined expertise to see possibilities for innovations with added value.

In this minor you will be working on an individual challenge and a group project. As a student you can shape your own Individual Challenge. The Group Project is a real-life challenge from one of our Partners in Education. In this minor there will be a Semester Coach and several Consultants available to help and guide you to a successful end of the semester. There will be Consultants available from a broad spectrum of expertises, of course from the AI field, but also from the disciplines from all participating students, like psychology, healthcare or the legal field, to help the students make the bridge to their own field of expertise.

The minor will take place in our Fontys Innovation Lab in Eindhoven.

During the minor you will gather your products in our learning management system (Canvas) and reflect on them in a Personal Development Report (PDR). Based on these products and the PDR your will have continuous feedback in relation to your learning outcome, which gives you a confident idea of the level you are “scoring” during the semester. The minor will be concluded with a final assessment based on the PDR and will make the scoring final.
