Representatives of the Department – members of the interfaculty team of project WARN participated in the Workshop on Internal dissemination of the JSS findings and Training on Adversarial Learning which was conducted in Lviv on October 18-20, 2021. During three days the WARN project team worked in “hybrid” interaction communicating alive at the locations of the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) and online via Zoom.
The NURE’s team was represented by the national project coordinator Associate Professor Svitlana Gryshko (EC Department), the team leader of developers of master’s programme “Artificial Intelligence Systems” Mariia Golovianko and executive project manager Liudmyla Titova, meantime Head of the EC Department Prof. Tetiana Polozova, and Professor of the AI Department Nataliia Ryabova, joined the online format.
During the meeting, informative trainings were held for the developers of the WARN-project:
– training on adversarial learning within the fight against hybrid threats and cognitive hacking in particular provided by Jyväskylä University, Finland;
– sharing knowledge obtained by representatives of the WARN-project in the Summer School of the University of Jyväskylä within the course “Changing Security and Hybrid Threats” (Assoc. Prof. M. Golovyanko, NURE – Kharkiv; Assoc. Prof. T. Reva, NAMSCA – Kyiv).
The “hybrid format” allowed access to the new unique content not only the project team but also students of partner universities.
Team members also synchronized and coordinated the activities of the second work package (WP2) aiming at the adaptation of study programs to the new context of hybrid threats:
– updating the profiles of master’s programs (in particular, the study programmes of NURE “Financial and Economic Security Management” and “Artificial Intelligence Systems”);
– development of the common project course “Hybrid Threats and Comprehensive Security” and special courses of the study programmes;
– development of a new method of proactive learning under conditions of protection against hybrid threats;
– Updating the interactive Hybrid Threats Glossary.
We invite everyone who wants to discuss the issue of accreditation of the educational and scientific program of applicants for the third (educational and scientific) level of education in the specialty 122 Computer Sciences, to take part in an open meeting with members of the expert group.
From October 1 to October 31, Career Month is held at the Kharkiv National University of Radioelectronics. Partner companies have prepared presentations, webinars, testing, contests and other types of activities for students.
The event will be attended by the following IT companies: NIX, Sigma Software, SoftServe, Epam, DataArt, G5, Solid Software, Distributed Lab, GeoComply and others.
Students will spend a month with benefits. They will learn about the peculiarities of teamwork, tools and technologies, receive advice and guidance from experienced experts! This is the first step on the way to employment!
We open the call to mobility for 2020 – 2021 academic year during spring semester for ICT field (code 061 according to UNESCO international standard – ISCED) at the EU partner HEIs:
1. For second-year students – at the University of Jaen, Spain.
2. For MSc students of the second year of study for developing a master’s thesis at the Higher Engineering School ECAM-EPMI, Cergy, France, for 2 months from 28.03.2022 till 30.05.2022.
3. For PhD students, starting from the second year of study, at the Higher Engineering School ECAM-EPMI, Cergy, France, for two – four months.
To participate in the competition students should send CV and motivation letter until Oct 15, 2021 to the e-mail address: email@example.com (Titova L., International Coordinator).
Selection criteria for students (in order of preference):
1. Academic performance of candidates
2. Knowledge of English
3. Lack of previous experience of participation in academic mobility projects
4. The less advantaged socio-economic backgrounds (including internally displaced persons, etc.)
Partner universities provide the selected candidates with a grant from the Erasmus+ KA107 programme which covers travel and living costs. The tuition at host universities is free.
Four mobility for teachers and two for administrative staff are also available. Applicants for teaching (5 days of teaching + 2 trips) and administrative training must send their СV and plan for teaching / training to the above-mentioned contact for the selection of candidates by a commission headed by the Vice-Rector for Innovation and Corporate Affairs and Administration.
Selection criteria for academic and administrative staff (in order of preference):
Consortium of the project WARN «Academic Response to Hybrid Threats» (610133-EPP-1-2019-1-FI-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP) including staff members of AI and ECES Departments, composed the Hybrid Threats Glossary which provides the terminological framework for definition of the hybrid threats in 7 fields of knowledge for 11 study programs to be modernized within the project, in particular in Management and Artificial Intelligence. An interactive version of the Glossary of Hybrid Threats has now been launched for use not only by the professional academic community but also by a wide range of stakeholders, regardless of age, social category and professional domain.
28.05.2021 at the meeting of the Academic Board of Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, rector NURE professor V. Semenets congratulated the scientists of the University on their professional holiday – Science Day and personally presented honorary awards.
Congratulations to Nataliya Ryabova, professor of the Artificial Intelligence Department, who received a Certificate of honour from the Executive Committee of the Kharkiv City Council “for many years of conscientious and fruitful work, high professionalism, significant contribution to the development of education and science in Kharkiv and on the occasion of Science Day.”
We wish Nataliya Volodymirivna good health and further creative success!
The academic year 2020/2021 is drawing to an end. Everyone already feels confident in online learning, including master students. The master students of the Artificial Intelligence Department, who studied under the educational and scientific program “Systems of Artificial Intelligence” (speciality 122 – Computer Science), defence their theses on May 18-20.
All graduates showed a high level of responsibility and self-discipline, withstood all the requirements of preliminary preparation of works for defence: they passed norm control, check for plagiarism, peer-review on time, passed stitched qualifying master’s theses (hardcopy) to the department.
Traditionally, a significant part of the works was devoted to research in computational intelligence, namely, various architectures of deep neural networks and their applications for solving multiple applied problems of computer vision, image recognition, and natural language processing. The subjects of the master’s works also include methods and models of multi-agent systems development, distributed databases, and recommender systems.
As usual, our graduate students tackle challenging but enjoyable, complex tasks, solve them successfully and prove their high professional level.
The masters’ defences were again pleased with the high level of the presented works and excellent results. We wish our graduates new interesting creative tasks, health and success!
On April 22-23, teachers and students of the Artificial Intelligence Department, as well as a number of other departments of NURE, participate in the V International Conference Computational Linguistics and Intelligent Systems, CoLIns-2021. In the pandemic mode, the conference was held online using the ZOOM platform.
We would like to thank the Organizing Committee and especially the Department of Intelligent Computer Systems of NTU “KhPI” headed by prof. Natalia Valeriyvna Sharonova, who took the brunt of the blow and perfectly organized the meetings of two plenary and seven section sessions.
A special bonus of this conference is the speeches of all participants posted on the YouTube channel.
