Two teams including students from the HSE Faculty of Computer Science and the Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics, are the best in Russia in practical cybersecurity in the framework of the Capture the Flag (CTF) competitions. The main purpose of this type of competition is the exchange of experience and knowledge in the field of information security, professional growth and the development of programming and system design culture among students and young scientists involved in cybersecurity.
HSE University has announced the winners of the Project Competition in Basic Science Research for Intercampus Departments. The competition, which the university is organising for the first time, will provide funding to 10 research teams working on five topics. Four of the winning projects will be implemented by new research departments formed as a result of the competition.
According to researchers at the HSE Centre for Language and Brain, processing a word which is markedly different in style from the rest of the sentence uses the same brain mechanisms as making sense of a semantically incongruent word. These mechanisms reflect the brain’s efforts to process an unexpected term. The study findings have been published in the Journal of Neurolinguistics. The research was financed by a grant from the Russian Government as part of the 'Science and Universities' National Project.
