Nikita Seleznev: City and Machine Learning
Over the past 10 years, many services have appeared that improve everyday interaction within the city: free navigators build the best routes in busy streets, taxi applications make it easier to call a car, and real-time tracking of public transport allows you to better plan your travel. Such services change the life of a big city in different ways. Machine learning plays a crucial role in these changes. It allows to use large data sets for the benefit of the city. At the lecture, Nikita Seleznev, Data Science at Yandex.Taxi, will present detailed explanations of how Yandex.Taxi, Yandex.Navigator, Yandex.Transport and other services change the modern city, as well as how machine learning contributes to these transformations.
