  • Teaching the Machine: The Prospects of Neural Networks

    A diagnostician bot that can tell you which doctor you should go to, or a system that can define the winner of a beauty contest all by itself — such things are no longer traits of a science-fiction novel, but descriptions of real programs. Each is based on neural networks, which progress in analyzing texts and recognizing items or faces with every passing day. One can even train the network to find a personal Pokemon for everyone, like Ludmila Kornilova, a student from ITMO University, did. In an interview to ITMO.NEWS, she shared about her projects in machine learning, and whether a machine can discern right from wrong.


  • Artificial Intelligence: How to Regulate Human-Machine Interaction?

    European Parliament initiated a discussion devoted to rules of how humans and computers with AI have to communicate. The question is whether to consider machines computer-based personalities or not. We’ve asked ITMO’s experts about their views on "roboethics."


  • Smart Assistants Based on Neuroethologies

    After three days of hard work, St. Petersburg developers presented their projects at the Hackathon on Smart Systems and Neurotechnologies in Virtual Reality. Young IT specialists worked on self-taught apps and tools.


  • "Searching for Lost Kitties": ITMO student Develops an App for Finding Lost Pets

    Maksim Averin, a student at ITMO University, and his team "3bots" won the audience choice award at the Vkontakte hackathon that took place at the end of November. The hackathon's participants were impressed by their "Searching for Lost Kitty's" app. Maxim Averin shared how they got the idea of an application that helps find lost pets.


  • Gutenberg’s Lounge — Machines and Intuition

    Sometimes you are totally sure about something, but you just can't explain why. That is what intuition is. So, is it possible to teach intuition to a machine? And is there any point to it? Ivan Ivanchei, a research associate from Saint Petersburg State University, shared on this subject during the recent session of the Gutenberg's Lounge sci-pop project.
