A new graduate certificate program in Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI) Systems at Georgia State University is designed to prepare working professionals to advance their careers in this new and fast-growing field. Georgia State, headquartered in Atlanta, already offered bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D. programs in computer science, data science and related topics.

The fully online certificate program combines AI and machine learning with cybersecurity and privacy, which are among the most in-demand subfields of computer science. Courses in the certificate program will cover topics such as robustness, reliability, security, privacy, fairness, accountability, transparency and ethics in AI systems. Students will gain knowledge and skills in trustworthy development, testing and deployment of AI systems.

The certificate program can be completed in as little as 21 weeks, with all required courses offered online.

“Georgia State is uniquely positioned to offer this program given the expertise of our faculty in this area,” said Daniel Takabi, Program Director, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Founding Director of the Center for Information Security and Privacy: Interdisciplinary Research and Education (INSPIRE). “The innovative curriculum is developed by several faculty whose work in trustworthy AI has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense and Microsoft, among others.”
