In December 2016, five new international laboratories opened up at the Higher School of Economics, one of which was the International Laboratory of Deep Learning and Bayesian Methods. This lab focuses on combined neural Bayesian models that bring together two of the most successful paradigms in modern-day machine learning – the neural network paradigm and the Bayesian paradigm.
Dmitry Vetrov, head of the laboratory, held a meeting with Mr. Shi-Hwa Lee, a Vice-President of Samsung, a company the laboratory collaborates with. Interim research results, internship possibilities and collaboration perspectives were discussed.
At the end of December new issue of Higher Education in Russia and Beyond journal was presented. The issue is dedicated to IT education and Computer Science developing in Russia. Several faculty staff participated in the issue’s preparation: speakers I. Arzhantsev, M. Gustokashin, A. Konushin, V. Kuliamin, A. Petrenko, V. Podolskii, A. Sobolevski, V.
