Yandex.PraktikumSchool of data analysis, founded by Yandex.
- machine learning,
- computer vision,
- analysis of natural language texts
- other areas of modern computer science.
SAD gives a systematic education, combining theoretical studies with practice. Students attend lectures and attend seminars, working together on educational projects, the results of which often lead to scientific publications. Some ShAD students get an internship at Yandex, where they can apply the knowledge they have just received.
All teachers of the ShAD work in the IT industry or are engaged in modern science, regularly encountering current problems in their field. These problems and approaches to their solution are reflected in the curriculum and the content of the lectures. New courses appear all the time in the program, and, on the contrary, some subjects are excluded as outdated.
Graduates of the School work at Yandex and other large IT companies, designing and creating complex high-load services, are actively engaged in science. For example, in 2015, the BAS, together with the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, became a participant in one of the four main experiments of CERN at the Large Hadron Collider - Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment (LHCb). Scientists from MIT, Lausanne Polytechnic School, Oxford University, Imperial College London and many other institutions analyze its results. ShAD is the only project participant that does not specialize in physics. The School is developing new tools and services for processing LHCb data.
