Our lab participated in Azure Tech Lab 2019 event, that is held by Microsoft Russia in Moscow every 2 years.
The events like this help us to develop, maintain and share state of the art research and development methods, techniques and experiences.
On the photo our Machine Learning expert, Dmitry Grechka, who participated in AI technologies lectures track.
Our lab developed a video stream analysis system that detects the cases of protective wear absence on workers in the production and industry areas.
The solution gives an ability to detect the facts of safety rule violations (absence of protective helment) just in time.
Connecting the system with the CCTV network provides a constant control over areas.
The tool can help the geologists to effectively annotate extracted core samples both the field and in the core sample storages.
The annotation work became simpler as it is possible now to take a photos of sample, annotate it, while actively moving around sample boxes with tablet in hands.
FetchClimate, a collaborative project of our lab and Microsoft Research, goes open source!
Now it is open for further development to the community. The licence is MIT so we hope that it is a great opportunity for other research groups like us to start new innovative project using FetchClimate code base.
These days we are happy to host in our lab our friend and college Drew Purves, Head of the Computational Ecology and Environmental Science Group (CEES) MSR Cambridge. During the visit apart from businesses meetings Drew conducts a series of talks with MSU students describing the research of his lab, encouraging students to set great research goals and achieve them.
