University of Texas to offer online master's degree in AI, including health focus

University of Texas at Austin plans to offer an online master's degree in artificial intelligence, the first large-scale program of its kind.

The online degree also will be the only one offered by a top-ranked institution priced near $10,000, according to a Jan. 26 university news release. The courses start in spring 2024.

One of the advanced courses will be AI applications in health, The New York Times reported Jan. 26. 

“In each of the classes, the instructor will ask students to reflect on the possible benefits and possible harms of the technologies they are learning about,” Peter Stone, PhD, a computer science professor at University of Texas who teaches ethical robotics, told the newspaper.
