Faculty Instructor Sergey Bartunov is beginning a three-month internship at DeepMind, a research division of Google. During his time with the company, Bartunov will develop new neural network architectures and methods.
Research & Expertise
What influence does big data have on today’s world? What is a ‘data scientist’ and what skills does one need? Those were the subjects of a lecture at HSE by HSE honorary professor Will van der Aalst, from Eindhoven Technical University (Netherlands).
he Faculty of Computer Science is only one year old – it was founded March 28, 2014 – but it already has a rich history and ambitious plans. This new 'big faculty’ brings together the departments of applied mathematics and informatics, of software engineering, and Yandex’s department, which were previously part of the Faculty of Business Informatics. The restructured faculty now consists of the School of Software Engineering, the School of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence, the School of Big Data and Information Retrieval, and the Department of Technologies for Complex System Modelling.
The International Research Conference AIST on Analysis of Images, Social Networks, and Texts took place at Yekaterinburg.
On September 6-11, 2015 the 39th Information Technologies and Systems Conference will take place at Hotel 'Imeretinskiy', which is situated in the Olympic village, Sochi, Russia. Conference organisers invite young researchers to submit the abstracts of their projects.
On April 17, 2015, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) announced the results of a competition for research projects carried out by teams of leading young researchers in 2015.
School of Software Engineering Takes Part in the Creation of Vietnamese-Russian Technological University
The Vietnam-Russia academic conference that took place in Hanoi in April decided to establish a Vietnamese-Russian Technological University (VRTU) on the basis of the Le Quy Don University of Science and Technology. HSE’s School of Software Engineering is to play a key role in this process.
HSE and Yandex have opened a Laboratory for Methods of Big Data Analysis at the HSE Computer Science Faculty (LAMBDA). The purpose of the new academic research lab is to create a world-class research centre to solve fundamental problems in computer science and develop methods for processing and analysing Big Data.
Over the course of 20 years, since the beginning of contemporary medicine’s transition into a digital format, a vast amount of largely unused data has amassed. The analysis of these data and the extraction of a new logic of control from them is one of the most popular areas of focus in applied mathematics, Oleg Pianykh, a Professor in HSE’s Department of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence and an Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School, said in a report. His report, 'Big Data in Medicine: How to Make them Work,' was presented at HSE’s academic seminar 'Mathematical Models of Information Technologies.'
