Skoltech and the Higher School of Economics (HSE) are pleased to announce the launch of a joint Olympiad in Statistical Learning Theory (SLT). The competition will be open to undergraduate and graduate students specializing in fields related to Applied Mathematics and Informatics. Following a pre-selection phase (application details below), the Olympiad finals will be held at Skoltech on 28-29 April.
In Russia and abroad, SLT specialists are highly sought due to the field’s connection with Machine Learning, which at the moment is one of the fastest growing areas of Information Technology. Skoltech and HSE have decided to join forces to launch a joint, two-year Master’s program in SLT. At the end of the program, students will receive diplomas from both respected institutes.
The Olympiad will feel challenges from the HSE and Skoltech SLT entrance examinations.
