In 2023, the Timiryazev Academy joined the Code of Ethics in use of AI as part of the annual Artificial Intelligence (AI) Ethics Forum "Generation GPT. The Red Lines". The practical implementation of disciplines in this field is led by the digital department of the Timiryazev Academy across several professional retraining programs.
During the professional development program "Neural Networks in Python", under the direction of Associate Professor Anna Ukolova, participants master the technologies of data collection and analysis in agriculture and the specifics of developing models of artificial neural networks of various architectures. Also they study the fundamentals of neural networks' construction and practical application using the Python programming language for both numerical data and image analysis and video stream processing.
In the professional development program "Artificial Intelligence Methods in Python for Animal Feeding" under the direction of Professor Nikolai Buryakov, participants gain experience in optimizing the diets of agricultural animals using machine learning in Python.
Professional skills in creating and applying big data and machine learning technologies relevant to agrobiotechnology development tasks are acquired through the "Machine Learning Methods in Agrobiotechnology" program. The implementation of the program is led by the university's leading experts - Associate Professors Vadim Demichev and Mikhail Cherednichenko.
Participants of the professional development program "Creating Digital Twins in Hydrotechnics" engage in the development of algorithms to solve the set engineering tasks in hydrotechnics according to the requirements of the technical specification, as well as the development, design, and debugging of program code using elements of artificial intelligence. The program is supervised by Associate Professor Vasily Fartukov.
To develop AI infrastructure at the university, the Research Center for Applied Artificial Intelligence Systems in the Agro-Industrial Complex has been established. The Center focuses on integrating educational, scientific, and industrial practical activities of the university in the field of artificial intelligence to create new high-tech products for industrial consumers in the agricultural sector.
