On Sunday at the ITMO University summed up the results of the Olympiad "ITMO Vkontakte". This year the competition was attended by more than 3000 students from 70 regions of Russia and CIS countries, who were able to test their knowledge in six disciplines. An open lecture about data analysis and machine learning technologies to the finalists of the Olympiad was made by the Director of growth and research, "Vkontakte" and a graduate of the University ITMO Andrey Laws. In an interview with ITMO.NEWS, he talked about how machine learning algorithms are already changing the most popular social network in Russia, students can now begin to take in this area and what skills will be useful to those who want to become part of the team of "Vkontakte".

On Sunday, April 8, at the ITMO University has defined winners and prize-winners of the Olympic games held in the social network "Vkontakte", — "ITMO Vkontakte".

On Monday, a solemn ceremony of awarding the prize "Professor of the year" in science. The award recognizes the professors ' meeting together with the St. Petersburg state University. This year's winner of the honorary title became Dean of the faculty of control systems and robotics University ITMO Anton Pyrkin. As a graduate of the University ITMO, during his career he managed to become the winner of many professional competitions, to defend his doctoral thesis work in industry, but in the end made their choice in favor of science and education, returning to Alma mater. About the development of robotics in the early 2000s, about why science to do sometimes more interesting than business, and what should be a modern technical education, Anton Pyrkin told...

A fourth-year Student of the Department of Photonics and Optoinformatics, ITMO University, masukov Maxim was included into number of winners of scholarships the professional Association of scientists and researchers IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. MTT-S is the largest international community of scientists and representatives of research organizations engaged in research in the field of RF, microwave and terahertz radiation. The society was established at the Institute of engineers of electronics and electrical engineering (IEEE) and annually announced among the students in the competitions for various scholarships. This year the winners of scholarships of the IEEE MTT-S Undergraduate Scholarship were six young scientists from the USA, Canada...

Robots go out of their enclosing boundaries become mobile, cooperative, increasingly intelligent and flexible. They disrupt our boundaries and introduce automation where it was not before. According to BCG, over the next years, the robotics market will grow faster than recent predictions, in this case mostly due to the increase in consumer demand. What that means for the economy in the future, how to build infrastructure, to redistribute financial flows and to regulate everyday relations between people and robots? These and other issues by leading experts from European and Japanese research centers, and industry representatives will discuss at the seminar, which will be held in the European Parliament on 9 April. One of the key speakers of the workshop will...

Today, the ITMO University celebrates 118 years. One of the best gifts made to the University graduate, Yuri Luzhkov, who gave him a domain name that fully correspond to the current name of the University, – itmo.ru. The domain transfer process is supervised by the alumni Association of the University and the Endowment Fund of the University ITMO, which also donated funds for domain itmo.ru. As a student of Department of computer engineering, in his spare time, Yuri Luzhkov, have created and developed alternative, the student portal of the University. In the early 2000s, when there were no social networks, website itmo.ru students could find the lectures and tutorials, but also get answers on all necessary questions, share music and make new friends. How...

Is it Possible to predict the outcome of eSports tournaments and the adults to solve the task of data analysis, if you still in school? This spring the charity Fund of Sberbank "investment in the future" launched the project "Academy of artificial intelligence", which aims to give the opportunity for any student to learn more about technology, artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data Analytics, and to develop their skills in programming and mathematics. In the framework of the project at the University ITMO was held open lessons on machine learning and data analysis for students in grades 7-11. The lecturer was the head of the Academy of technology and data of the corporate University of Sberbank Andrey Chertok. He said the skills required...

In my scientific career, Catherine's Sorrow had worked in four countries. Educated in Minsk, she continued research at the max Planck Institute, where he led the group and worked on the development of smart biomaterials. While at Harvard she worked in the group of the most cited chemist in the world George Whitesides on several fundamental projects, including the famous Origins of life. Now Catherine's Sorrow is a Professor at the ITMO University and leads his own group in Russia in the chemical and biological cluster, created a year and a half ago. Among the key projects of the lab — creating dynamic materials for optics, development of biochips that are able to diagnose a wide range of diseases, and fundamental research in the area of information storage...
