Artificial intelligence and data processing

Artificial intelligence and data processing are dynamically evolving areas of informatics that are becoming increasingly important. The program is based on a thorough understanding of basic theoretical concepts and methods, which will give students the opportunity to become true experts in the field. The core of the field includes the teaching of artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks, statistics, data visualization and large data processing technologies.

However, the theory is not detached from practice - already during the study, students solve specific case studies, in which they get acquainted with the currently used tools and technologies. Students have the opportunity to work on real industrial or scientific projects during their studies. Students gain experience that will allow them to immediately use the current state of knowledge in practice, as well as solid foundations, thanks to which they can continue to independently monitor further developments in this dynamic area.

The candidate chooses one of the specializations Bioinformatics and systems biology, Machine learning and artificial intelligence, Extensive data processing and analysis or Natural language processing.

Graduate profile

Thanks to the dynamic development of the area for which the program prepares students, graduates have a wide range of employment, while specific methods of employment are constantly emerging and many only appear during their studies. The general application possibilities are:

  1. applied and basic research, typically large data processing, often in collaboration with experts in other fields such as biology or linguistics;
  2. working in companies whose immediate interest is artificial intelligence and data processing (eg Seznam, Google), for example in the positions of Data Scientist and Machine Learning Engineer;
  3. work in companies that have valuable and often extensive data at their disposal (eg banking, telecommunications operators), as well as companies providing data analytics technologies in the cloud, such as Business Intelligence Analyst and Data Analyst positions;
  4. establishing your own start-up specializing in the use of artificial intelligence methods in a specific area.

The study includes practical projects, often in cooperation with the commercial sphere. However, an internship in a company is not part of the study.


Specializations are study plans that set out the conditions for graduation, such as compulsory subjects.

Bioinformatics and systems biology

The specialization is intended for students who want to gain, in addition to general knowledge of computer science, the latest knowledge in dynamically developing fields on the border of computer science and biology. By choosing this specialization, the student will gain in-depth knowledge of the processing, storage and analysis of biological data or the use of formal methods for analyzing and predicting the behavior of biological systems.

Students can participate in the activities of the SYBILA laboratory

Machine learning and artificial intelligence

The specialization leads graduates to gain a deeper knowledge of methods in the field of machine learning techniques and artificial intelligence and experience with their application.

Processing and analysis of large data

The specialization focuses on data sciences, which create value from huge data flows by collecting, researching, interpreting and presenting data from various perspectives for the purpose of data analytics, so-called business intelligence.

Data storage and processing servers

Natural language processing

The specialization prepares graduates to work with natural languages (eg Czech, English) in written and spoken form from the point of view of informatics.
