Timetable for today

Lemons, Magic and Computer Vision

Alexey Tolkachev, a student of the Master of Data Science online programme, a leading data analyst, talked with us about his victory in the Agro Code hackathon, shared his impressions of the programme, and explained why he plans to pursue computer vision in the future.

‘I Found Almost All of the Materials I Needed to Prep for the Interview in the Master’s Programme Courses’

As a student of the first cohort of the HSE Master of Data Science online programme, Alexey Babenkov not only gained new knowledge but also used that knowledge to find a new job.  He told HSE News Service how his online studies are organised, described the advantages of remote learning and explained which courses are especially useful.

An article by members of the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory was published in the journal “Language variation and change”

From a northern village to an academic article, or How many linguists do you need to describe variation in Russian dialect?

Thank You for Choosing HSE!

Several HSE instructors recognized as ‘the best’ in their fields would like congratulate students with the start of academic year and hope that they don’t give in to procrastination, take advantage of all opportunities available at HSE, have a good sleep before exams at least once, and remember that teachers are humans too!
