Machine Learning

Educational program “Machine Learning” of 2019 is a combination of previously DAAD-supported courses “Robotics and Data Mining” (2017) and “Data Mining” (2018). The program was transformed according to students’ feedback and demand.

This course is a two-week intensive program with the UlSTU IT-professors and IT-specialists. The program leader is Prof. Kirill Sviatov, a young enthusiastic dean of the Faculty of Information Systems and Technologies, having additional trainings for students in machine learning and robotics for many years in a row, including lecturing in partner-universities in Germany and China. With his students Prof. Sviatov participates in all-Russian and international competitions, i.e. Robofest. He also organizes and supports local scientific and technical events for schools and universities.

During the course students practice and work with the following technologies: - Linear and logistic regression; - Neural networks; - Deep learning; - Generative models; - Image processing; - Text processing; - Basics of intelligent robot control; - Others.

After a short theoretical introduction students put their knowledge into practice by developing algorithms. As a final examination they develop their own project.

Russian language and culture classes are offered as an extracurricular course. They are offered for beginners and advanced (upon request) learners. Teachers of Russian as a Foreign Language Department have been running the classes for more than 8 years. Students receive a certificate of a taken course, indicating the number of academic hours and credit points recommended, as well as study materials of a taken course.

Entertaining part of the program combines sports activities, workshops, cultural museums, city tours, bicycle rides, camping, and many other events.

Participants of the Summer school are accommodated within walking distance from all educational buildings. The university also provides transport for students when arriving to the city.

During the School participants will be accompanied by student tutors and volunteers. It is recommended for students to form groups when arriving to Russia so the university specialist could meet them in Moscow and follow to Ulyanovsk (if applicable).
