The challenges posed to our society by new digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), social media and big data call for solutions that combine technological and philosophical expertise. Our Master's degree programme in Philosophy & Computer Science (P&CS) at the University of Bayreuth (subject to the approval of the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts) aims at training a new generation of scientists and creative thinkers with all the necessary skills to navigate the social, epistemological, ethical and institutional challenges of increasingly pervasive modern information technologies.
