Optimising a city's transportation system requires insights into the dynamics of urban traffic to understand where, how, when, and to what extent people travel within the city. The rationale behind route selection and the choice of transportation mode are also of importance. The primary source of this data is the travel diary, a tool designed to survey people's transport behaviour. Based on a paper by Maria Sergienko, a master's student of the HSE Faculty of Urban and Regional Development, IQ.HSE examines how people's daily travel can be described in detail and why an automated diary cannot yet completely replace its manual counterpart.

An international consortium of research organisations from China, India, and Russia, including HSE University’s Faculty of Urban and Regional Development represented by experts from the Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urban Studies and Planning and the Centre for Social Research and Technological Innovation (CITY), is developing an index of technological and spatial urban development (the Urban & Innovation Environment Index). Recently, a list of the top 10 largest cities of the BRICS countries was published on the project’s website.

A team of researchers from HSE University, jointly with the Yandex School of Data Analysis and Yandex Cloud, have developed a neural network for anticipating El Niño climate anomalies. The new algorithm enables more precise predictions of changes in the average surface temperature of oceanic waters that can trigger natural disasters in specific regions of the world. At present, the model is capable of predicting El Niño events one and a half years in advance, and the researchers are working towards extending the forecast period to two years.
