Engineers Teach Self-Driving Cars Think

Self-driving cars is not a piece of science fiction — they have become part of today’s reality. According to the experts, this kind of transport is to make driving safer and reduce traffic density. However, traffic rules for self-driving cars are yet to be created. The main question is whether they have to be managed by a control unit or serve as autonomous systems? The residents of ITMO’s Future Technologies accelerator offered the multiagent control system for vehicle self-operation.

From dry Statistics to Reality: the Experts Explain How Numbers Reflect the State of Russian Science

The quality of modern science cannot be judged only by bare statistical information. Such numbers as the amount of scientists under 30, articles published in international journals, investments in science and many other ones don’t reflect the full extent of scientific development these days. Recently, the Ministry of Education and Higher School of Economics presented a report on the dynamics of development indicators of Russian science. ITMO.NEWS asked experts about what these numbers mean.
