Bachelor of Computer Science (BCompSc) Artificial Intelligence, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur

This programme is a major in Artificial Intelligence. Upon graduation, candidates will be conferred with Bachelor of Computer Science degree.

The challenging world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) does not deter UM from offering the programme to its graduates. Even the definition of AI is still a matter of disagreement among experts in its field. The argument is that a sufficient meaning of intelligent behaviour is yet to be agreed on. Some argues that intelligence as the ability to cope with change and to incorporate new information in order to improve performance and existing technologies don’t appear capable of this. While some claim that artificial intelligence is that which mimics human reasoning or sensing.

Whatever the definition may be, this programme prepares students with the proficiency and technical skills needed to successfully function in the world of AI, be it in the development or management stage.
