Distance learning. New opportunities: online Master Defences

19 May 2020 13:02

Distance learning is becoming an integral part of our professional life. Today we had the first day of defences of the master students at the Artificial Intelligence Department. Our students studied under the educational and scientific program “Artificial Intelligence Systems” (speciality 122 – Computer Science).

It was interesting, and first of all, for the students themselves. The defences happened online! The main challenge was to meet the allotted time and report the basics of student’s work. Perhaps this was not so easy, while the reaction of the board members to the report is not immediately visible. But, such a remote mode of students defence did not bother them at all, needed to mention. They very confidently defended themselves and answered questions from the examination board. Perhaps because students have defended their Master’s thesis for today are the best of the best, real stars. Or probably because all of them already successfully work in IT companies and have experience in work and communication online.

The topics of Master’s thesis were contemporary and exciting, dedicated to deep neural networks and their application in practical problems of clustering, classification, image recognition, research of ranking methods to improve the results of search engines, thematic modelling of a corpus of natural language texts.

We congratulate our Masters with excellent defence results and wish them further creative success and professional growth!
