Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to intelligent systems that can independently perform tasks that were originally restricted to humans (such as decision-making and creation). AI is based on two complementary approaches: Traditional AI (modeling existing knowledge and reasoning mechanisms in an efficient way) and machine learning (systems that gain knowledge on their own, either with training examples or instantly, with the use of reinforcement learning).

 

Visual Computing (ViC) involves processing multimedia content (i.e. images, sounds, videos and 3D content). The multiplicity of online media has resulted in a significant need to create, analyze, and edit. Advanced Visual Computing both illustrates AI content and raises new challenges for the field.

 

Program Structure
 

The Artificial Intelligence and advanced Visual Computing Master’s provides students with the keys to become the next creators of innovative applications, using artificial intelligence and visual computing.  

 

Year 1 includes classes on Imaging Techniques, Computer Animation, Machine Learning, Image Analysis, and Statistics, to name a few. The year then ends with a four- to five-month internship.

 

Year 2 involves more in-depth classes in machine learning (deep learning and reinforcement learning). Classes include High-dimensional Data Analysis, Computer Vision, Advanced 3D Graphics, Natural Language and Speech Processing, and Socio-emotional Embodied Conversational Agents.
 
You will also become familiar with ethical issues and law, and novel applications of Artificial Intelligence and Visual Computing, through weekly seminars with keynote talks from academic and industrial partners.

 

Transverse project: You will spend half a day per week working on a transverse project, aiming to find solutions to a significant issue raised by either an industrial partner or a researcher in a domain covered by the program.

 

The Master’s ends with a final internship. For five to six months, you will work on a project, either at a company R&D center or a research lab.  The Master’s Program has developed strong collaborations with world-class partners in industry, all of which are glad to welcome our students for their internships.

Academic Eligibility:

  • Bachelor's degree in Mathematics or Computer Science. Applicants must have followed at least one Statistics course and at least one Algorithmics course. Applicants with other degrees may be considered, provided that they have a strong background in Mathematics and Computer Science.

 

Indian Students Eligibility:

  • Applicants must have bachelor’s degree in Mathematics or Computer Science from a recognised institution with good academic record.

 

Along with the minimum eligibility requirements, international students hailing from non-English speaking countries need to prove English proficiency through IELTS/TOEFL/any equivalent test to get admission to this program

 

Required Document List

 

Documents required are:

  • Transcripts
  • CV
  • Copy of Passport
  • 2 Reference Letters
  • Personal Statement
  • Proof of English Language

Standard tuition fees are set at €16,200 per academic year.

 

Tuition fees may differ depending on your status, or a partnership with your home institution. Moreover, a number of grants are also available thanks to the contribution of the Program’s industrial partners. Please indicate in your application if you are interested in such grants. Eligibility for a grant depends in part on your academic record.
 

A rapidly growing number of companies are looking for researchers and engineers who are able to create new original computationally competitive AI algorithms. The particular focus put on visual computing in this training will naturally lead students toward applications related to image processing, virtual worlds, conversational agents or drone navigation.

 

The Artificial Intelligence and Visual Computing Master’s combines both research and professional experience. After graduating, students can either pursue PhD study at a French or foreign research lab, or work for companies and start-ups across a range of industries:

 

  • Digital applications for smartphones, computers, or personal assistants: Shazam
  • Control of autonomous vehicles, drones and robots: Valeo, BMW
  • Virtual reality, image and video editing, design and simulation of 3D virtual worlds: Ubisoft, Dassault Systems, Microsoft, Adobe, Sony, Nintendo
  • E-commerce and online advertisement: Criteo, Teads, Cdiscount, FNAC, eBay, Microsoft, Ubisoft


Many of our current students also choose to do a PhD after the Master’s Program.
