Online social networks and success of new entrepreneurs
The rapid development of the Internet, and in particular the emergence of social networks, affects many spheres of human activity. This largely concerns the business for which the development of online technologies is expanding the zone of influence of marketing and creates a new platform for advertising and promotion of their own product or idea.
Network classification algorithms and packet switching
Project Head: Sergey Nikolenko
The modern network edge must perform a wide spectrum of tasks: deep packet inspection, firewalling, VPN services, intrusion detection and many others. These tasks may have radically different computational requirements but traditional architectures of network processors are not suitable for processing packets with heterogeneous processing requirements. Algorithms for these models have only started to be developed, and we plan to obtain new results in this field.
Open database and a crowdsourcing website for development of sentiment analysis instruments (2014-2015)
Project Head: Sergey Koltsov
The project is aimed at the development of a software, a database and a sentiment lexicon that can further help create a methodology of detecting emotional polarity of user-generated Russian language content.
