Diliara B.

Diliara is a Ph.D. student and researcher in Neural Networks and Deep Learning Laboratory at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. She has two master degrees in Computational Mathematics of Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology. Diliara’s current research is dedicated to neural approaches to text classification and evolutionary algorithms for neural architecture search. One of her main responsibilities in the Laboratory is development of text classification components.

Nikolay B.

Nikolay is a Ph.D. student at MIPT. His research interests are related to integration of knowledge from structured databases to dialogue agents. As an engineer, Nikolay has significant experience of deployment various applications and services both to local and cloud servers (Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure). He likes research but his priority is delivering great UX.

Idris Y.

Idris has developed various systems from web-apps on Ruby on Rails to dialog agents that uses wide range of NLP and machine learning methods. Currently, he is leading the development of NLP-core in an Autofaq.ai chatbot platform. Idris is a Ph.D. Student at MIPT focusing his area of research is dialog agents. Idris won Conversational Intelligence Challenge 1 (ConvAI) and have publications in NIPS and COLING conferences. He is a team player, that gets things done.

Dmitry K.

Dmitry finished his secondary education with a silver medal in 10 years (instead of 11). He also won the Moscow chess championship among private school students. During study at MIPT he has received 2 extra scholarships (Abramov scholarship, state elevated academic scholarship), and earned his BA degree with honors. In 2017, Dmitry switched his research area to Computer Science. Since then he has managed to win the DeepHack.Chat competition. Dmitry also has participated in 3 scientific conferences (En&T, Mintz Readings, 59th MIPT conference) and 1 robotic competition (FIRA HuroCup 2019).

The Anh L.

The Anh is a Ph.D. student and researcher at the Neural Networks and Deep Learning Laboratory at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. In 2012 he received his Masters degree in Computer Science from the University of Engineering and Technology, Vietnam National University, Hanoi, Viet Nam. He is a lecturer at the Faculty of Information Technology - Vietnam Maritime University. The Anh’s research is related to deep neural network models for natural language processing tasks and focuses on structural retrieval from text (e.g. named entity recognition, coreference resolution).

Mikhail Burtsev

- Faculty Advisor

Mikhail Burtsev is a head of Neural Networks and Deep Learning Laboratory at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. In 2005, he received the Ph.D. degree from Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics of Russian Academy of Sciences. He is one of the organizers of NeurIPS Conversational Intelligence Challenges (ConvAI 1&2) in 2017 and 2018, as well as a series of workshops on Search-oriented Conversational AI. At the moment he leads the development of open-source conversational AI framework DeepPavlov.
