The VK artificial intelligence laboratory opened at MIPT in September 2019. Here, students conduct research and create experimental products alongside VK specialists. We believe that work in this field brings the world closer to the next industrial revolution, and we are willing to provide our resources to help advance this work.
At VK, we develop machine learning methods and implement them in our products. And now we are also developing artificial intelligence in partnership with large scientific centers, one of which being MIPT.
Avenues of research:
- Natural language processing and generation
- Recommender systems
- Graph representations
The laboratory is headed by leading VK developers. They help students choose or come up with projects and provide assistance throughout the process. Their projects could be presented in scientific journals, become experimental products or solutions to tasks the company is working on.
In March 2019, we conducted the first VK Lab Talks seminar, where laboratory assistants and managers shared the results of their first months of work. All reports and interesting news from the laboratory can be found in its community: vk.com/lab. If you’re interested in artificial intelligence or want to join the lab, be sure to check it out.
How do I become a VK Lab assistant?
We plan to start recruiting new laboratory assistants in fall 2020. The announcement will be posted in our VK community. If you’re interested, start thinking about why you want to join the laboratory and be prepared to complete a test assignment.
See you soon!
