About

The Laboratory for Intelligent Systems and Structural Analysis (ISSA Lab) was founded at HSE in 2012 by Prof. Sergey O. Kuznetsov.

The reason for founding the laboratory is growing demand for high-quality data analysts and researches in the fields of intelligent systems development and data analysis techniques. The amount of data that science and industry operate has dramatically increased in the past decades  as well as the hidden knowledge and value within it. To gain competitive advantage and uncover the hidden insights we need new mathematical models and algorithms for processing different types of data.


Research focus

The ISSA Lab is focused on some mathematical models of artificial intelligent and it's software implementation. Main topics:

  • Development of intelligent systems
  • Human computer interaction in intelligent systems
  • Theoretical foundations and applications of Formal Concept Analysis
  • Network analysis and applied graph theory
  • Machine learning
  • Knowledge representation and ontology modelling
  • Automatic text processing

Research seminars

The ISSA Lab hosts weekly research seminars on topics related to Intelligent systems including computational logic, ontology modelling, data analysis methods, efficient algorithms design and implementation, and others. Seminar scheduled day is Thursday.


Administration

As of 2016, the current head is Sergey O. Kuznetsov, the leading researcher is Andre Scedrov.

Manager of the Lab is Larisa I. Antropova.

Academic activity

The ISSA Lab is a part of School of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence at Faculty of Computer Science. Laboratory staff participate in all academic activities oof the Faculty, including  bachelor's programmes, master's programmes, and postgraduate schools (for dissertation preparation).

The ISSA Lab supports Data Science master's programme (academic supervisor  Sergey Kuznetsov). The programme includes such courses as  Data Mining, Ordered Sets in Data Analysis, Practicum in Natural Language Processing as well as students' research seminar.
