Russia’s Tech Hubs: What are Russia’s ‘Technocities’ Producing?

Russia’s Tech Hubs: What are Russia’s ‘Technocities’ Producing?
Over half of inventions patented in Russia over the last decade have been created only in 11 cities. A study by HSE ISSEK experts calls these tech hubs ‘technograds’. Here is what they are and what they do.

Researchers Teach Neural Networks to Recognize Similar Objects on Videos without Accuracy Degradation

Researchers Teach Neural Networks to Recognize Similar Objects on Videos without Accuracy Degradation
Andrey Savchenko, Professor at HSE University, has developed a method that can help to enhance image identification on videos. In his project, a network was taught by a new algorithm and can now make decisions on image recognition and classification 10 times faster than before.

Donor Muscle Training Before Transplantation Expedites Rehabilitation Process in Patients

Donor Muscle Training Before Transplantation Expedites Rehabilitation Process in Patients
Researchers at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience of the Higher School of Economics have proposed to train transplanted muscles in advance with new movements so that the brain can learn to use them more quickly after autotransplantation. The results of the study on the prospects of this approach were published in the article ‘Perspectives for the Use of Neurotechnologies in Conjunction with Muscle Autotransplantation in Children’.

Artificial Intelligence Learns to Predict Elementary Particle Signals

Artificial Intelligence Learns to Predict Elementary Particle Signals
Scientists from HSE University and Yandex have developed a method that accelerates the simulation of processes at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The research findings were published in Nuclear Instruments and Physics Research Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors and Associated Equipment.

Neural Network Taught to Detect Age and Gender by Video Almost 20% More Accurately

Researchers from the Higher School of Economics have created a technology to help neural networks identify certain people on video, detecting their age and gender more quickly and accurately. The development has already become the basis for offline detection systems in Android mobile apps. The results of the study were published in an article entitled ‘Video-based age and gender recognition in mobile applications’ .

On Autopilot: How Self-driving Vehicles Fit into the Legal Landscape

On Autopilot: How Self-driving Vehicles Fit into the Legal Landscape
IQ.HSE continues its series of HSE* expert reports on the legal regulation of new technologies. The first article in the series dealt with artificial intelligence. Today’s article looks at self-driving vehicles.

Scientists Teach the Neural Network to Carry Out Video Facial Recognition — Using a Single Photo

Researchers at the Higher School of Economics have proposed a new method of recognizing people on video with the help of a deep neural network. The approach does not require a large number of photographs and it has a significantly higher recognition accuracy compared to already existing methods — even if only one photo of a person is available. The results of the work have been published in the articles ‘Fuzzy Analysis and Deep Convolution Neural Networks in Still-to-Video Recognition’.
