The University of Georgia is accepting applicants for the Master of Science
degree program in Artificial Intelligence (M.S. in AI) to begin their
studies in the fall of 2008. This 2-year program provides a way for
linguists and those trained in other areas of cognitive science to become
more employable. Graduate students come from all over the world, and most
are supported by assistantships from a variety of sources.
Strengths of the program include logic programming, expert systems, neural
nets, genetic algorithms, natural language processing, and computational
Because of the interdisciplinary nature of artificial intelligence, a
bachelor's degree in a specific major is not required. However,
undergraduate credits in computer science, epistemology, linguistics,
logic, mathematics, psychology, and/or relevant areas of engineering will
improve a student's chances of acceptance.
Further information is available from www.ai.uga.edu, and from the graduate
coordinator, Dr. Khaled Rasheed (khaledcs.uga.edu). Applicants with a
linguistics background may also wish to contact Dr. Michael Covington

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
