‘Bots Are Simply Imitators, not Artists’: How to Distinguish Artificial Intellect from a Real Author

‘Bots Are Simply Imitators, not Artists’: How to Distinguish Artificial Intellect from a Real Author
Today, text bots like ChatGPT are doing many tasks that were originally human work. In our place, they can rewrite ‘War and Peace’ in a Shakespearean style, write a thesis on Ancient Mesopotamia, or create a Valentine’s Day card. But is there any way to identify an AI-generated text and distinguish it from works done by a human being? Can we catch out a robot? The Deputy Head of the HSE School of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence, Professor of the HSE Faculty of Computer Science Vasilii Gromov explained the answer in his lecture ‘Catch out a Bot, or the Large-Scale Structure of Natural Intelligence’ for Znanie intellectual society.

Chemists Improve Membranes for Water Treatment and Desalination

Chemists Improve Membranes for Water Treatment and Desalination
Chemists at HSE University, Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry, and the University of Science and Technology of China have developed membranes with enhanced properties. The researchers experimentally revealed the impact of various factors on the desalination process and on the selectivity of ion separation. According to the study authors, their research will enable a more precise prediction of the properties of new ion-exchange membranes used in water treatment and desalination. The study findings have been published in Desalination.

Social Connections Help Women Achieve Academic Success

Social Connections Help Women Achieve Academic Success
Social integration has different effects on the academic achievement of women and men. Researchers from HSE University’s Institute of Education studied the connections between academic performance and social integration among 4,500 young Russians. It turned out that this connection is much stronger than it might seem at first glance, and that it is more important for women. The results of the work were published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships.

Neural Network Developed at HSE Campus in Perm Will Determine Root Cause of Stroke in Patients

Neural Network Developed at HSE Campus in Perm Will Determine Root Cause of Stroke in Patients
Specialists at HSE Campus in Perm and clinicians at Perm City Clinical Hospital No. 4, have been collaborating to develop a neural network capable of determining the root cause of a stroke. This marks the world's first attempt to create such a system, the developers note.

HSE University Hosts the First Meeting of Russian NGO Representatives as Part of BRICS Civil Track

HSE University Hosts the First Meeting of Russian NGO Representatives as Part of BRICS Civil Track
More than 50 representatives of non-profit organisations took part in the meeting, where they discussed the event plan for 2024 and thematic areas of activity of the working groups of the BRICS Civil Forum, scheduled to be held in Moscow in July 2024. The BRICS civil track’s operations are coordinated by the BRICS Expert Council–Russia.

AI Assists with Fact-Checking: HSE Scientists Streamline Information Verification

AI Assists with Fact-Checking: HSE Scientists Streamline Information Verification
Specialists at the HSE AI Research Centre have developed an AI-powered fact-checking assistant. This software solution will improve the quality of working with information, reduce the risks of errors and biases, and save both time and resources. A notable advantage of the program lies in its capability to process a wide variety of statement types.

BRICS Expert Council–Russia Launched at HSE University

BRICS Expert Council–Russia Launched at HSE University
The official presentation of the BRICS Expert Council – Russia has taken place at HSE University. The Council will be responsible for the information, analytical and expert support of the Russian BRICS Chairship 2024.

Moscow and St Petersburg Rank among Global Leaders in Spatial and Technological Development

Moscow and St Petersburg Rank among Global Leaders in Spatial and Technological Development
HSE experts, in collaboration with researchers from China and India, have participated in the development of the Urban & Innovation Environment Index, a global ranking of cities. Moscow ranks fifth in the final global rating of urban agglomerations and first in the rating for those in BRICS+ countries. St Petersburg ranks seventh in the global rating and third in the BRICS+ rating.

Physicists Explain Transition Between Different Types of Superconductivity

Physicists Explain Transition Between Different Types of Superconductivity
Physicists from HSE MIEM in collaboration with colleagues from MIPT and other universities have formulated a theory capable of explaining the transition between different superconductivity types, revealing an intertype regime characterised by exotic magnetic properties. This discovery can serve as the foundation for the development of sensors with enhanced sensitivity and accuracy, capable of functioning in conditions where traditional sensors are less effective. The study has been published in Communications Physics.

Russian Researchers Unveil Mechanism Underlying Language Processing Disruptions in Epilepsy Patients

Russian Researchers Unveil Mechanism Underlying Language Processing Disruptions in Epilepsy Patients
Researchers at HSE University and the Pirogov National Medical and Surgical Centre have examined alterations induced by epilepsy in the language-related neural network within the brain. Using graph-based analysis, the researchers studied fMRI data from 28 patients and found that in epilepsy, both hemispheres of the brain become activated during language processing and short connections form between the hemispheres, while long connections within one hemisphere are disrupted. The study has been published in Epilepsy&Behavior.
