The HSE University Centre of Artificial Intelligence pursues research in 25 areas. Research groups partake in conferences and seminars, write articles, and conduct workshops. It is too early to draw conclusions and summarise the results, so project heads explain how matters stand in their interviews.
In early September, the first event of the Genetics of Cardiovascular Diseases consortium - an interdisciplinary forum "Cardiogenetics and Bioinformatics: Realities 2021" - was held at HSE University. The forum marked the start of the consortium after signing an agreement on scientific cooperation between the participating organizations. The forum was attended by heads and representatives of scientific centres and institutes from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Arkhangelsk, Tyumen and Surgut.
