Digital breakthrough. The championship for AI specialists started in Yaroslavl

On June 15 Yaroslavl, the regional championship started under the project  Digital Breakthrough. Season: artificial intelligence. Within a month, participants from all over the country in an online format will solve the problem of building a model for predicting the development of a patient's cardiovascular disease from a start-up of the winners of the “Digital Breakthrough” “Forward”.

During the opening of the hackathon, the organizers and representatives of Yaroslavl higher educational institutions, project ambassadors, as well as a representative of the Forward team that delivered the case, not only presented the task of the competition, but also discussed topical issues in the field of artificial intelligence — development of AI in Yaroslavl region, search and development of personnel in artificial intelligence through competitive championships.

“We together with participants are forming a personnel reserve in Russia. “Digital Breakthrough” gathers unique specialists who are competent not only in IT, but and in related fields. A distinctive feature of the championships from traditional hackathons — it is an educational component. Here, beginners will be able to upgrade their knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence. By participating in IT championships, specialists will not only solve complex and non-trivial tasks, but and will become part of the Digital Breakthrough community, — noted in the appeal to participantsDeputy General Director of ANO «Russia — land of opportunity Anton Serikov.

“The role of artificial intelligence today is exceptionally high: technology is already a part of our life and will continue to occupy an increasing place, and medicine — one of the areas where these technologies are used very actively. Today IT specialists have a great opportunity not only to declare themselves and their projects, but to advance scientific thought, and to also provide real support in the future to people who need medical care through high technologies. Therefore, events like the project “Digital Breakthrough. Season: artificial intelligence” valuable for us: they give results, reveal the potential of specialists. I wish all participants of the project successful team and individual work, recognition of their talent, further support for their knowledge and ideas, — emphasized Director of the Department of Informatization and Communications of the Yaroslavl Region Alexey Filippov.

“Digital Breakthrough Championships” — this is a synergy of initiative participants and the best experts, the first attempt at a digital “pen” for novice programmers and an opportunity for a quick start in the IT industry. It is here, at individual competitions, that everyone can express themselves, get into community of experienced professionals and to walk together with a mentor the way from acquaintance with artificial intelligence technology to career and professional-guidance masterminds. I want to note that the championship that started today in the Yaroslavl region most clearly reflects the key essence of the project — implementation of social lift mechanisms for participants. For example, the challenge and dataset for this championship was prepared by the winner of the “Digital Breakthrough” Egor Bogdanov, ambassador and team captain.

In the status of ambassador of the project and leader of the club, he shares his experience with children, prepares        trains novice programmers not only hackathons, but and the basics of machine learning and  data», — shared with the participants of the event the head of the All-Russian and regional championships of the project "Digital Breakthrough. Season: artificial intelligence Tatyana Golubovskaya.

Personalized system of the future

Within the framework of the regional championship, participants will have to analyze both traditional and non-traditional risk factors for the development of a patient's cardiovascular disease and build a predictive model. The task was proposed by the Forward team — a startup created by the winners of the “Digital Breakthrough” competition; in the 2020 final  The team has developed the best solution in a case identification of cardiovascular patient problems based on big data.

Founder and head of digital solutions integrator Forward-IT, ambassador of the Digital Breakthrough project. Season: artificial intelligence Egor Bogdanov presented the task of the hackathon in Yaroslavl: “I believe that the technologies necessary for the personalized medicine of the future have already been developed. We just need to apply them in order to make a huge leap in the development of the Russian healthcare system. Machine Learning — this is exactly the technology that can make predictive medicine accessible to everyone, and I don see no reason to put it off until tomorrow».

With   the head of  scientific research and innovations, YarSU named after P. G. Demidov Nikolai Zhivaev. “Artificial intelligence technologies are the basis for the development of new IT solutions in a wide variety of industries. They allow you to assemble interdisciplinary teams to develop effective solutions for implementation in the real sector of the economy. On on behalf of Demidov University, I greet the participants and wish in the hackathon process to create not just working prototypes, but solutions that will find their customer and will be used for the benefit of the region.
