TOMSK, Mar 26 – RIA
Tomsk. Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) has brought together about a hundred
scientists and experts from all over the world to participate in an online
school dedicated to machine learning and 5G; for the first time the school took
place two years ago in Paris, the curator of the event Anna Bogdan told RIA
Tomsk on Friday.
She clarified that the
organizers of the event are the TPU School of Computer Science & Robotics
and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). As stated in open
sources, the IEEE is the largest international association of specialists in
the field of technology, the world leader in the development of standards for
electronics, electrical engineering and hardware for computing systems and
"TPU has a foreign
professor Dushnatha Nalin K Jayakody, who is also an IEEE member. He leads an
international team of specialists conducting research in the field of the
fifth-generation 5G mobile communications. The professor participated in the first
machine learning school in Paris in 2019 and initiated the second event at
TPU," Bogdan said.
As specified on the TPU
website, at Tomsk Polytechnic University, Professor Jayakody and his research
team are working on projects for 5G. This new generation of mobile
communication technologies is distinguished from the previous ones by the huge
data transfer rates. 5G also reduces signal latency. This is especially
important for the development of, for example, unmanned vehicle technologies,
where signal delay can be critical.
According to Bogdan,
Training School in Machine Learning for Wireless Communications is held from
March 23 to 26 at the TPU site in Zoom. Postgraduates and students involved in
computer science, information technology, electronics, telecommunications
engineering, as well as experts and experienced researchers in the field of
communications - about 90 people in total are participating.
from countries such as Russia, India, Sri Lanka, Australia, Turkey, Spain, Brazil,
France, Pakistan, Italy, Morocco, America, Slovenia, China, Egypt, Luxembourg,
Great Britain, Ethiopia, Serbia, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, Iran, Portugal,
Algeria, Nigeria, Bhutan. Their main goal is to share trends and best practices
in machine learning and 5G," Bogdan said.
