Moscow Polytechnic University and Cognitive Technologies will Develop Artificial Intelligence

The University and the group of companies signed an agreement at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

Moscow Polytechnic University and the leading Russian developer of artificial intelligence systems and Software Company Cognitive Technologies within the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence technologies and implementation of training programs for stuff in new sectors of Economics.

The document says that in order to achieve the goals of cooperation, the parties intend to open the Center of Advanced Development of Autonomous Systems at the University base Center for advanced development of Autonomous systems, focused on solving the full range of issues of engineering Autonomous Transport Systems from design and prototyping to testing and certification, based on the best domestic and international practices. Another important task of the new structure will be the training of staff for new scientific and industrial areas. The Centre will be headed by one of the leading domestic experts in the field of Artificial Intelligence, the development of sensors for Autonomous vehicle Nikolay Panokin.

"We, like the world's leading developers, are expanding cooperation with universities and research centers to develop innovative platforms for the implementation of solutions in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Moscow Polytechnic University has unique competencies in this field, — said Olga Uskova, President of Cognitive Technologies group. — Well-known world experts in the field of Artificial Intelligence will work in new organization of our country and in development of unmanned transport systems."  

"One of the strong point of Moscow Polytechnic University is practice-oriented training. For example, our students produce their own racing cars, which win prizes in international competitions, – said Vladimir Miklushevskii. – Therefore, cooperation with Cognitive Technologies company aimed at creating Autonomous transport systems with elements of artificial intelligence is not only an opportunity to solve the most relevant scientific issues, but also a way to give our students the very competencies of the future thanks to which they will be in demand in the labor market."

The parties also plan to make efforts in conducting joint research and development in the field of Artificial Intelligence for their subsequent implementation in Industrial Systems of Autonomous Control of unmanned vehicles. It is planned to implement new educational programs in the Moscow Polytechnic University c, such as the Research and Development Engineer of an Autonomous Vehicle, Specialist in the Operation of an Unmanned Vehicle and others.
