Skoltech is an international graduate research-focused university that was founded by the group of world-renowned scientists in 2011. Skoltech's curriculum focuses on technology and innovation, offering Master's programs in 11 technological disciplines. Students receive rigorous theoretical and practical training, design their own research projects, participate in internships and gain entrepreneurial skills in English. The faculty is comprised of current researchers with international accreditation and achievements.

Probability calculator: how do supercomputers process data and find regularities?

The Hi Tech project presents an online lecture:


 The lecture is in Russian!

How does modern science predict randomness? How does parallel computing works? What is the role of the engineer, and what are the types of randomness? Join our online lecture on March 3 to find out the answers. Skoltech Professor Vladimir Palyulin will talk about the state of the art in numerical modeling and Skoltech Professor Sergey Rykovanov will discuss supercomputing exemplified by specific use cases.

Sign up for the lecture to learn more about:

  • types and effects of randomness on the creation and study of models of natural phenomena and numerical methods;
  • the most efficient numerical modeling methods, ranging from generation of random values and distributions to probability thinking;
  • ways to calculate a supercomputer’s efficiency and identify a limit to capacity build-up.

The lecture will offer details about world-class MSc and postgraduate offerings at Skoltech which was listed among Nature Index’s top 100 young universities in 2019. Our students take internships at MIT, Harvard, the University of Calgary, and other top universities and labs. A voluntary medical insurance package (DMS) and draft deferment are provided if required.
