Collaboration between HSE and the company "Yandex" began in 2008. In 2011 at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics was created a joint Department with the company "Yandex". In 2014, the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics and a joint Department became a part of the Faculty of Computer Science.
Students in the Department not only study automatic indexing and information search (for texts, links, logs, images, signals, social networks, etc.), but also modern methods of working with complex data. We also look at the aggregation of data, its automatic classification, the extraction of informative factors, decision theory and other models and methods commonly referred to as intelligent. Students of the department receive fundamental mathematical knowledge as well, firstly in the field of discrete mathematics, probability theory, and mathematical statistics. In addition, they learn classical and modern methods and techniques of programming.
How to become part of the team:
Any student with a bachelor’s or specialist’s degree that qualifies for the School of Data Analysis can get into the master's programme. Programme requirements include attending required master’s courses and classes in the School of Data Analysis, and also participating in one of the academic seminars. In addition, students have the opportunity to intern at Yandex during or after the programme.
