What do thousands of Twitter users think about the recent FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia? How did it affect the traffic situation in the city? What are the ways to effectively manage data in virtual reality? Six students from ESIEE Paris, one of France’s leading educational establishments, worked on these and similar projects during their three-month internship at ITMO’s School of Translational Information Technologies. In an interview for ITMO.NEWS, they talked about their research and experiences of living in Russia.
Nicolas Jacquier, a Master’s student at the engineering school ESIEE Paris, has been working on an individual project for 2 months already as part of his internship at ITMO University. He is only staying for three months in total in St. Petersburg where he will work on Big Data visualization. In an interview with ITMO.NEWS, he spoke to us about why Europeans feel right at home in the city, the friendly relationships between professors and students, the pros and cons of writing a Master’s thesis and which European capital the city of St. Petersburg resembles the most.
Chemists from Russia and Switzerland created biosafe luminescent nanoparticles for imaging tumors and blood vessels damaged by heart attacks or strokes. The particles are made of hafnium oxide that can be used for intravenous injections, and doped with ions of rare earth metals. Scientists hope that their invention will become an alternative to the toxic quantum dots, and allow getting images of deep tissues without harming the human body. The study was published in Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces journal.
ITMO’s eScience Research Institute and University of Oslo have signed a memorandum of understanding. Andrei Karsakov, engineer of eScience Research Institute, and Anna Bilyatdinova, lecturer at the High Performance Computing Department, shared the details in an interview to ITMO.NEWS.
Currently, visualization technologies help researchers predict flows, analyze crowd behavior and make medical decisions. ITMO University researchers developed the 3D Human Anatomy Atlas and the interactive «map» of the blood-vascular system. he invention is to be used at universities and in hospitals.
