Robotics, artificial intelligence and jurisprudence in the digital environment

Russian universities begin 2021 with new educational programmes in AI and robotics.

ITMO University has launched an updated and expanded Master's programme in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. It's based on their Robotics programme – the largest master's programme in this field in Russia, popular among both Russian and international applicants.

The new version includes two specializations: research for training scientists and corporate for training developers (with the support of the Robotics Center of Sberbank PJSC).

The study of machine learning and artificial intelligence methods under the new programme will allow graduates to solve urgent problems of modern robotics that cannot be calculated using formal analytical approaches: the behaviour interpretation when co-working with a human, action prediction and control. It will also help to optimize the stage of structural design and mechanics of future robots. The programme is suitable for both field experts and external specialists to obtain broad interdisciplinary knowledge for prospective professional development.

Another fascinating online master programme is Machine Learning and Data-Intensive Systems of the HSE University. Please note that enrollment for the programme ends on January 12, 2021, and the classes themselves start on March 1. This is a full-fledged master's programme, all units are held remotely, either in a synchronous or mixed format. This way you can attend lectures with professors live and ask questions via Zoom or listen to the recordings and complete assignments on Coursera – the choice is yours. The programme will allow you to study machine learning but also methods of its development.

You can study another interesting side of AI and machine learning matter at the South Ural State University (National Research University) with the Law and Digital Technologies programme. This fully English-taught master's degree will allow modern lawyers to understand the specifics of the statutory features of information technology and products in the context of various legal areas. Lectures are given by Russian and international experts in the field of law in partnership with the leading universities in Europe and China.

For those already on their journey in the world of robotics, we recommend ITMO University's winter school WeCoRD International Winter Science Online School of Robotics. Applications are accepted until January 15, 2021. The school's programme includes lectures and workshops by leading scientists and experts from Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Canada and the USA.

You can find the most up-to-date programmes of Russian universities in robotics on our website using a convenient filter: choose the Mechanical Engineering field of study, subject Mechatronics and Robotics.
