Fourth International Workshop on Formal Concept Analysis for Knowledge Discovery

Joint Project with University of Stellenbosch

In the end of November Sergei Kuznetsov, Head of the School of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence, and Dmitry Ilvovsky, Junior Research Fellow at the International Laboratory for Intelligent Systems and Structural Analysis visited the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa.

Joint Project with University of Stellenbosch

The trip was organised in the framework of the joint project of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and South Africa’s National Research Foundation and the programme of scientific development of the International Laboratory for Intelligent Systems and Structural Analysis.

The visit aimed at scientific cooperation and interaction between the research group of the School of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence (HSE Faculty of Computer Science) and their colleagues from the departments of mathematics, computer science and social sciences of the University of Stellenbosch.

During the workshops and presentations the participants discussed joint research projects in data analysis, text mining, machine learning, computer logic, and other areas of computer science. The representatives of the universities also prepared preliminary versions of joint publications by Russian and South African researchers and discussed signing a cooperation agreement related to student exchange and double degree programmes.

HSE representatives also agreed to conduct data analysis of South African wine industry in cooperation with the University of Stellenbosch oenology and computer science departments. Export of high quality dry wines from hundreds of manufacturers is one of the main income items in South Africa, while the relevant data hasn’t been analyzed yet.
