Master Artificial Intelligence & Extended Reality

(previously called eXtended Artificial Intelligence)

Artificial Intelligence & Extended Reality (AI&XR) is a tuition-free english master's programme offered by the University of Würzburg together with its Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science (CAIDAS). AI&XR aims to train highly qualified specialists in the field of one of the key methodologies of our century, Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The program provides students with advanced skills and competencies in the analysis, development, and evaluation of AIs, from old proven systems all the way to the newest state-of-the-art. Additionally, AI&XR focusses on combining AI systems with extended (virtual and augmented) reality (XR) tools to provide a new, interactive medium that allows for the combination of human and machine intelligence.

Beyond the development of new AI methods, we provide a large multidisciplinary research platform for the integration of AI/XR methods into many different scientific fields and daily life. The CAIDAS center covers a wide range of research areas, from the mathematical AI fundamentals over human-centered AI to specialised application fields such as literature, biomedicine or business analyticsPowerful computational resources and state-of-the-art research labs such as Robotics, Virtual Realty, and Virtual Embodiment Labs are available to AI&XR students and support education and research at the highest level.
