There are several multidisciplinary research projects under way at the Faculty of Science, which are being carried out in cooperation with the research institutes on the science campus and with other faculties, universities, and corporations. The role of computer science within these projects is to develop the basic methods of the discipline in strategic areas and to collaborate in depth with other disciplines.
The study tracks within the Master’s Programme in Computer Science cover a considerable part of the strategic focus areas of computer science research at the University of Helsinki: algorithms, data analysis and machine learning, networking and services, software systems, bioinformatics, and data science.
Computer Science is part of the Finnish Center for AI (FCAI). The FCAI is one of six Finnish Flagship programmes of the Academy of Finland. The mission of the FCAI is to create real artificial intelligence for real people in the real world.
Computer science has coordinated the long-lived Algodan centre of excellence, which has been the basis for many current research groups.
