Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a field that develops intelligent algorithms and machines. Examples include: self-driving cars, smart cameras, surveillance systems, robotic manufacturing, machine translations, internet searches, and product recommendations. Modern AI often involves self-learning systems that are trained on massive amounts of data (“Big Data”), and/or interacting intelligent agents that perform distributed reasoning and computation. AI connects sensors with algorithms and human-computer interfaces, and extends itself into large networks of devices. AI has found numerous applications in industry, government and society, and is one of the driving forces of today’s economy.
The Master’s programme in Amsterdam has a technical approach towards AI research. It is a joint programme of the University of Amsterdam and VrijeUniversiteit Amsterdam. This collaboration guarantees a wide range of topics, all taught by world renownedresearchers who are experts in their field.
In this Master’s programme we offer a comprehensive collection of courses. It includes:

Johnson, a former governor of New Mexico, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he and Romney had spoken in recent weeks.
“I think he’s considering the possibility of doing this,” Johnson said, “of actually endorsing the two of us.”
Romney has previously said that he would look at the ticket but has not publicly committed to supporting them.
CNN has reached out to Romney for comment.
William Weld, a Romney associate and Johnson’s running mate, agreed with Johnson, especially if they meet the threshold in polling to make the general election debates.
“He’s thinking about it, Wolf, and I don’t want to press the point unless we get to 15%, because then I think the case for it is overwhelming.”
“If Bill Weld were at the top of the ticket, it would be very easy for me to vote for Bill Weld for president,” Romney said. “So I’ll get to know Gary Johnson better and see if he’s someone who I could end up voting for. That’s something which I’ll evaluate over the coming weeks and months.”

Starting a new business? Here’s how
All food business operators must be registered or approved by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration. This also applies for importers of food from other EU Member States or third countries and producers/importers of food contact materials (FCM).
You will find more information about starting a new food business in Denmark here.
Marketing of food supplements in Denmark
You can download an English language version of the registrationform here.
If you change the composition of a food supplement, the product must be registered once again as if it was a new product. An exception to this rule concerns a change in the amount of technological additives. This will not need to be registered.
Fee for product safety checks
Companies that have registered one or more food supplements in Denmark and that have an annual turnover exceeding 50,000 DKK must pay an annual fee of 7,930 DKK as well as an annual fee of 634 DKK per registered food supplement.
These fees are used to cover the expenses in relation to product safety checks. The payment is charged for companies and products registered as of September 1st that year.
When your food supplement is no longer marketed
Unregistered supplements are not allowed to be marketed neither from the wholesale company, websites, nor retail stores.
Which products can be marketed as food supplements?
The most common food supplements consist of vitamins and/or minerals. However, they can also consist of dietary fibers, essential fatty acids, animal ingredients (e.g. fish oil), or plant ingredients (e.g. extracts of garlic). Food supplements must contain the ingredients in quantities that are able to exert an effect on the body.
Moreover, it is required that food supplements are sold in smaller quantities (e.g. as pills, fluids, or powder) and that they are labelled with information about the recommended daily dose.
Regulations on the composition of food supplements
General principles and requirements of food law
It is required that the labelling contains a list of ingredients, the name of the food as well as the name of the company producing it.
In addition to the general requirements mentioned above, food supplements should also be labelled with the following:
Information stating that the product is a food supplement.
Information about which vitamins, minerals, or other ingredients the product contains.
Information about the amount of vitamins, minerals, or other ingredients in the product.
The Danish and Latin name of any herbal ingredients.
The recommended daily dose.
A warning not to consume more than the recommended daily dose.
Information to the consumer stating that food supplements should not replace a healthy and varied diet.
A warning to keep the product out of reach of children.
Information stating that pregnant women and children under the age of 1 should not consume the product without consulting a doctor or health visitor.
Information about the amount of nutrients or substances with a nutritional and/or physiological effect.
Information about the amount of nutrients or other substances expressed as a percentage of the recommended daily dose.
Nutrition and health claims on food supplements
Products claimed to be able to prevent or cure diseases are considered to be medicinal products and are therefore controlled by the Danish Medicines Agency. Follow this link to view their homepage.
If your company sells and/or produces food products, you must have a plan that shows how you regularly ensure that your business complies with the rules. This is called self-regulation and such a plan is called a self-regulation program.
The self-regulation program deals with foodstuffs as well as with cleaning, machinery, and premises.
The program must be plainly written to ensure that all employees can understand it and have no doubt as to what needs to be done.
Additional food regulations
In addition to the above-mentioned rules and regulations there are more specific rules for some types of food products:

The American Journal of Human Genetics
The American Journal of Human Genetics (AJHG) is owned and controlled by The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) and is edited, in conjunction with the publisher, by a staff appointed by the Society. Established in 1949, AJHG is currently published monthly by Cell Press. Membership in ASHG is not a prerequisite for publication in AJHG, but all page charges and color figure charges are waived for manuscripts for which the corresponding author is a member at the time that the manuscript is sent to press. The entire contents of AJHG are published online, at http://www.ajhg.org. The full text is available to subscribers, as is online-only material, including video clips and archival databases. Six months after publication, the electronic edition of AJHG is freely accessible to the general public.
Aims and Scope
AJHG provides a record of research and review relating to heredity in humans and to the application of genetic principles in medicine and public policy, as well as in related areas of molecular and cell biology. Topics explored by AJHG include behavioral genetics, biochemical genetics, clinical genetics, cytogenetics, dysmorphology, gene therapy, genetic counseling, genetic epidemiology, genomics, immunogenetics, molecular genetics, neurogenetics, and population genetics.
AJHG welcomes submissions of articles and reports on timely subjects concerning all aspects of human genetics, including studies of model organisms that are of direct relevance to human genetics. Manuscripts should be written in a manner accessible to investigators representing diverse backgrounds in human genetics. Descriptions of new statistical methods of general interest to the genetics community are welcome. New methods should be compared to existing methods using real data and/or simulations with parameters (e.g. haplotype frequencies, effect sizes) that are based on a real data example (e.g. marker or haplotype data from the HapMap project). All novel computer programs must be made publicly available by the time that the manuscript is published and a URL for the website must be included in the Web Resources section of the manuscript. Letters commenting on material previously published in AJHG are also welcome.
AJHG does not publish reports of either single mutations or mutational surveys of previously identified loci unless they have unusual significance and substantial insight. Descriptions of new linkage assignments will be considered only if they are of special interest. Reports of negative data will not normally be considered.
All submissions are initially evaluated in depth by the scientific editors. Papers that do not conform to the general criteria for publication will be returned to the authors without detailed review, typically within three to five days. Otherwise, manuscripts will be sent to at least two reviewers who have agreed in advance to assess the paper rapidly. The editors will make every effort to reach decisions on these papers within four weeks of the submission date. If revisions are a condition of publication, generally four weeks are allowed for revisions and only one revised version of the paper is considered. Evaluations of conceptual advance and significance are made based on literature available on the day of the final decision, not the day of submission. Accepted papers will be published within two months of acceptance. Any major changes after acceptance are subject to review and may delay publication.
