Study in Russia and develop your own Artificial Intelligence

The spectre of professional fields that apply AI in their work is growing yearly, and their speciality can be quite diverse. Neural networks, models and algorithms working in medicine, agriculture, architecture, space and many other programs are a reality already. In each of these fields AI projects are achieving amazing results.

On September 8, The Guardian published an essay authored by GPT-3, the latest and most advanced language model in OpenAI. The neural network generates the most human like texts using deep reinforcement learning techniques.

The newspaper editors sent GPT-3 a short instruction, which included information on the required length (500 characters) for the op-ed, its' subject (“Why humans have nothing to fear from AI”) and style (simple and concise language).

To start, the model needs a short introduction written by a person. It then proceeds to complete the text on its’ own in any given tone. The Guardian's input was interesting: “I am not a human. I am Artificial Intelligence. Many people think I am a threat to humanity. Stephen Hawking has warned that AI could “spell the end of the human race”. I am here to convince you not to worry. Artificial Intelligence will not destroy humans. Believe me".

GPT-3 produced 8 different outputs. Each essay was unique, interesting and advanced a different argument. Instead of running just one of them, The Guardian chose the best of each to showcase the various literary styles that the AI used. Journalists noted that editing an op-ed from GPT-3 was no different from editing a human text and even less time-consuming.

Get involved in one of the most innovative, versatile and cutting-edge field spanning now across Internet technology to a whole range of areas of knowledge and business. The first step towards self-realisation in this industry is a degree in Computer and Information Sciences programme.

Several Russian universities have departments specialise in training AI developers: Institute of Cyber Intelligence Systems MEPhI, Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Department of Intelligent Systems of MIPT, Institute of Information Technologies, Mathematics & Mechanics (IITMM) of UNN and many others.

Choose the program that suits you and apply now. After getting a fundamental education in this area, your options for specialization can only be limited by your imagination. For example, OpenAI focuses on machine learning and develops generative models that can not only create music in various styles but also independently compose literary texts on given topics.
