Collaboration with Samsung Opens New Perspectives for the Laboratory and the Faculty
Head of the Deep Learning and Bayesian Methods laboratory Dmitry Vetrov held a meeting with Mr. Shi-Hwa Lee, a Vice-President of Samsung. The meeting was also attended by Ms. Tammy Lee and Mr. Sukjin Kim, Principal Engineers in Seoul office, and representatives of Russian office: Mr. Wonki Lee, General Director, Mr. Byoung Kyu Min, Senior Professional and Mr. Jong-Chul Choi, Principal Professional. The goal of the meeting was to discuss intermediate results of the joint research project in deep neural networks incremental leaning, and also to talk about future collaboration. The parties agreed to set up summer internships for the students of the Faculty of Computer Science, to be held at Samsung headquarters in Seoul.
Collaboration with Samsung provides an opportunity to involve more students in research and to conduct research in the area of neural networks compression and speed-up. Thanks to the support of the company, the laboratory gained access to a new computational server. These computational resources allow to intensify the research in deep learning. They will be also used in laboratory's other research projects.
