Yandex awarded the first scientists named after Ilya Segalovich to young scientists and supervisors

    Yesterday, April 10, at the Yandex Moscow office, the first winners of the Ilya Segalovich Prize , created this year to support young researchers and the scientific community of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, were awarded . In the three months since the launch of the award, 262 applications came from young specialists and scientific leaders, which could be put forward by their students and graduate students. The Prize Council selected nine top young researchers and four research advisors. The youngest laureate is only twenty one years old.



    Students and graduate students who became laureates of the award will receive 350 thousand rubles each and the opportunity to attend an international conference on artificial intelligence, a personal mentor and an internship in the Yandex Research Department, the leaders won 700 thousand rubles each.

    Young scientists who received an award for their contribution to computer science:
