During the past three years, a team of researchers from the Machine Learning Lab has been studying artificial intelligence in the field of social network analysis. Aleksandr Farseev, the head of the team, discussed tasks they worked on and the results they achieved.
On September 22-25, ITMO University is hosting the international conference GraphiCon-2020. Established in 1991, the conference is a key event for specialists in the world of computer graphics and adjacent fields.
Every day, billions of people use social media to communicate with each other. But some of them doxx others, insult them, and act in a toxic manner. ITMO.NEWS met with Ivan Smetannikov, the co-head of ITMO’s Machine Learning Lab, to find out how algorithms help us combat this behavior.
Students and staff of the Machine Learning Lab at ITMO University Laboratory developed a library for Python that helps to solve one of the key problems of machine learning. In this article, we will tell you why this tool appeared and what it can do.
Approximately 1,500 teams participated in the event. The competitors were tasked with training a neural network to identify toxic, hostile, and obscene comments in various languages among dozens of thousands of regular texts.
Participants of the event attended lectures by industry experts and designed assignments for each other. For example, some were tasked with creating a bot that would emulate the classic authors of Russian literature, while others – a bot capable of identifying the language used in online comments.
A UK scientist and a PhD student from ITMO University’s Machine Learning Lab have created a robot that automates biological experiments. The invention will make it possible to train an algorithm for controlling the growth of neurons from stem cells. Going forward, the project’s authors plan to generate circuits from neurons grown that way.
In addition to making it possible to improve the tools for analyzing user activity and algorithm training, the research also has fundamental value. Work on the project continued for about six months, with its results currently being used to develop research papers.
Vyacheslav Shalamov, a PhD student from ITMO University’s Information Technology and Programming Faculty, is one of the recipients of the Ilya Segalovich Award by Yandex. ITMO.NEWS asked him about his scientific achievements, ideas, and plans for the future.
The third annual meetup on the use of artificial intelligence and big data in marketing by the agency Sociaro was held in April. Among the speakers was Yuri Konov, a customer engineer at Google Cloud. He talked about the opportunities for solving machine learning tasks offered by Google to developers, business analysts, marketing specialists and scientists, and whether you have to be really good at machine learning to make use of those.
