HSE University’s Joint Master’s Programme with Skoltech Named Best Educational Initiative at Data Fusion Awards 2023
VTB, CNews, and Skolkovo have announced the winners of the Data Fusion Awards 2023, a nationwide cross-industry award in the sphere of big data technology. The awards recognise the top projects in the public sector, business, and education. The English-taught Master’s programme Math of Machine Learning, implemented jointly by HSE University’s Faculty of Computer Science and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, was named the educational initiative of the year. Second place in this category was awarded to the Graduate School of Business’s Master’s programme Business Analytics and Big Data Systems.
Darina Dvinskikh has been working at the Faculty of Computer Science since September. She has been hired via the tenure track programme. Darina told us how her choice of research topic for the master's thesis determined her path in science and where the Wasserstein barycenters can be useful.
On November 1st-3rd, 2022 the International Laboratory of Stochastic Algorithms and High-Dimensional Inference of the HSE Faculty of Computer Science and the Laboratory of Methods for Big Data Analysis with the support of HSE AI Centre and the Russian Science Foundation organized the first autumn school and conference on artificial intelligence ‘Fall into ML’. The new format of the event included a school for students and young researchers.
HSE's Faculty of Computer Science and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology have held the Mathematics of Machine Learning Olympiad for the fifth time. The participants competed for prizes and the opportunity to matriculate at two universities without exams by enrolling in the HSE and Skoltech joint master's programme in Math of Machine Learning.
On October 26-30, Statistics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Probability, Learning Theory Event (SAMPLE) conference took place in Gelendzhik, Russia.
Until April 20, you can apply to take part in the Math of Machine Learning 2021 contest. The winners of the contest will be able to enrol into HSE University's Math of Machine Learning master's programme and Skoltech's Data Science master's programme (Math of Machine Learning track) without entrance exams.
We are proud to announce that in 2020 eight candidates of computer science defended their theses at the Faculty. There have been six candidate defences in 2019. Prior to 2018, there were only degrees of candidate and doctor of technical or physical-mathematical sciences in Russia. Degrees in computer science have become possible due to HSE University's ability to grant its own degrees.
Upon successfully defending his dissertation before HSE Dissertation Council in Computer Science, Pavel Dvurechensky became the first Doctor of Computer Science in Russia. This was possible thanks to the fact that, starting in 2018, HSE University received the right to award its own academic degrees.
