Last week, the latest in a series of public lectures about science and technology, organized by ITMO University’s Science Communication Center, was held at the New Holland creative space. This time around, attendees had the pleasure of hearing from Alexander Boukhanovsky, PhD, the head of ITMO University’s School of Translational Information Technologies and the eScience Research Institute, who spoke about the modern state of digital identity technologies and their applications. Below are the key highlights of his talk.
Stanislav Sobolevsky is an Associate Professor of Practice at New York University (NYU), the Head of Urban Complexity Research Group and a co-founder of the Insight Data Labs consulting studio. His research interests include machine learning and Big Data, network analysis, human movement modeling, and the theory of differential equations. During his open lecture at ITMO University, he talked about a new scientific field, urban informatics, and in particular what issues it deals with and how it helps make cities more livable.
Vasiliy Leonenko, Associate Professor at the High-Performance Computing Department, spent over a year in the USA on a Fulbright program. Working in Durham, North Carolina, he collaborated with specialists from RTI International, a major US research organization specializing in synthetic populations, on a detailed dynamic model of the spread of influenza in St. Petersburg. In an interview for ITMO.NEWS, he talked about his project and the peculiarities of working in the USA.
July 6 marked the conclusion of the 7th International Young Scientists Conference in Computational Science. Held in the bustling Greek city of Heraklion, this event was organized by ITMO University jointly with the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands), the University of Crete (Greece), the Foundation for Research and Technology (FORTH) (Greece), and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) with the aim of strengthening the ties between young scientists in different countries. Over 90 young scientists from more than 8 countries, including Russia, Greece, Poland, Ethiopia, Philippines, and the Republic of Macedonia, took part in the conference.
Musculoskeletal system diseases do not only worsen the quality of life but they can also lead to other diseases, including cardiovascular ones. Scoliosis is one of the most common musculoskeletal system diseases. Researchers from ITMO’s Department of Nano-Photonics and Metamaterials and Department of Advanced Mathematics together with the Ogonek Pediatric Orthopedics and Traumatology Center (Strelna), headed by Mikhail Dudin, are working on a physical and mathematical model of scoliosis that will help doctors more accurately diagnose the disease.
A dynamic model of passenger flows at the new Olympic Park railroad station in Adler will be demonstrated at Venice Biennale of Architecture till the end of November 2018. The model was developed by members of the Laboratory of Interactive Visualization of the eScience Research Institute by order of Studio44 Architecture bureau which designed the new railroad station.
This end of February has become St. Petersburg’s coldest in the past several decades. According to Alexander Kolesov, Chief Meteorologist at the Northwest Center of the Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, we last had such cold weather back in 1955. Europe experienced a drop in temperature as well; actually, the recent cyclone even got a nickname, the Beast from the East. So, what is happening to the climate, and how will these global changes affect St. Petersburg? During a lecture at the Institute of Design & Urban Studies, Artem Pavlovsky, climatologist and member of the State Research and Design Center of St. Petersburg Master Plan, talked about the reasons behind climate change, and its effect on the development of urban territories.
The Renga Software company and ITMO University have signed a partnership agreement; among the partners’ future plans is the opening of Renga’s first authorized training center. There, instructors from ITMO University will introduce Renga’s BIM software to specialists whose previous experience involved working with two- and three-dimensional CAD software. Renga’s products will also be a part of the educational process at the university.
ITMO University has launched an educational program for professional training in cooperation with OOO “Research and Development Center “Etalon””. The program is mainly dedicated to study of BIM technology. It can be used to account for all the properties and measurements of the building not only during construction, but also during its operational stage and to predict the possible faults in the structure as well as monitor its condition in real-time. By increasing their theoretical and practical knowledge through the program, specialists are able to work as BIM- managers, coordinators and modelers.
ITMO University scientists in alliance with international colleagues developed a program for bringing together computer models of crowd behavior. According to the authors, this helps forecast emergencies that appear during mass gatherings. The method already as a base for the crowd behavior study at the Kumbh Mela festival. The research article was published in Future Generation Computer Systems.
