How to read a scientific paper
Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed by the dozens, if not hundreds, of scientific papers you have to sort through for research? ITMO.NEWS spoke with one of the university’s researchers to deliver a breakdown of how to best approach this difficult task and come out victorious.
Mastering computer vision
The School of Physics and Engineering at ITMO is launching a new Master’s program! The program will focus extensively on practical training, allowing students to combine their studies with working on actual commercial projects alongside the program’s industrial partners.
The curriculum also features a much wider scope than often seen in similar programs, covering not only machine vision, but also optical physics, computer science, and other similar disciplines that will offer the graduates a deeper understanding of their field.
Students present R&D projects
The participants of a competition for student-driven R&D projects recently showcased 13 projects at a project defense. The ingenious projects include: adjustable-rigidity actuators for exoskeletons, a health monitoring bracelet for coma patients, and a whole range of delicious plant-based treats!
Baltic competition finalists explore ITMO
Late last month, finalists of the Baltic Science and Engineering Competition visited ITMO to learn about its Security and Safety for Critical Digital Technologies research center. We came along to find out more about quantum encryption, information security, ethical hacking, and other subjects covered at the center.
From Russia with new materials
A recent press conference organized by the TASS news agency unveiled a slew of intriguing new materials that are currently being developed by Russian scientists. From flexible electronics and smart textiles to new RAM formats and high-quality displays – there is definitely much to look forward to!
