Lecturers of the Department of Information Technologies in Management of the Graduate School of Management of St. Petersburg State University (GSOM SPbSU) delivered lectures to the participants of the Archipelago 20.35 as part of the educational track "Artificial Intelligence in Biomedicine".
Tatyana Gavrilova, Professor, and Dmitry Kudryavtsev, Associate Professor conducted a workshop on visual-analytical thinking and ontology and, together with the Semantic Hub company, a laboratory on text analysis and knowledge engineering in medicine.
In their speeches, GSOM SPbU experts focused the audience's attention on ontologies. That is one of the leading methods of visual organization and presentation of knowledge. It allows users to depict the subject area in the form of a diagram, which reflects the basic concepts and elements and the relationship between them. During the event, the students mastered the basics of ontological engineering, that is, the process of designing and developing ontologies, as well as examples and scenarios for its use. Taking into account the specifics of the track, the ways of representing knowledge in biomedicine were considered, as well as the corresponding examples of intelligent systems and their knowledge bases.
The organizers of Archipelago 20.35 were University 20.35, the NTI Platform, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, the Innovation Promotion Foundation and the Skolkovo Foundation. The purpose of the event was to create an effective resource (personnel, design, technological and ecosystem) basis for the implementation of the National Strategy for the Development of Artificial Intelligence until 2030, the Digital Economy of Russia program, the federal project Artificial Intelligence, as well as Roadmaps of the National Technology Initiative.
Archipelago 20.35 was held online and ended on November 21.
