The Alliance in the Field of Artificial Intelligence has created a Scientific Council, which includes leading representatives of Russian science in the field of artificial intelligence. The Higher School of Economics is represented on the council by four scientists.

As noted in the message of the Alliance in the field of artificial intelligence, scientific leaders were selected to the council, whose students were published at the world’s leading scientific conferences in the field of AI. An important criterion was also participation in educational activities and socially significant initiatives for the development of science and artificial intelligence technologies.

The first composition of the Scientific Council included four representatives of the National Research University Higher School of Economics:

Alexey Naumov, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Director of Basic Research Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Digital Sciences, National Research University Higher School of Economics, manager International Laboratory of Stochastic Algorithms and Multidimensional Data Analysis Faculty of Computer Science, National Research University Higher School of Economics. Author of more than 40 articles on topics: probability theory in high-dimensional spaces, statistics, machine learning, reinforcement learning.

Alexander Gasnikov, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, leading researcher at the International Laboratory of Stochastic Algorithms and Multidimensional Data Analysis of the Faculty of Computer Science at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, Rector of Innopolis University, chief researcher at the Skoltech Center for Applied AI. Author of seven books, including the main monograph in Russia on mathematical modeling of traffic flows.
