Colleagues mutually sharing experience
By Svetlana Savkova
The OSTIS-2012 conference in the sphere of artificial intelligence application gathered over 120 participants from CIS states, including those from academician circles and business communities. The application of artificial intelligence in the fields of medicine, education, criminal investigation and mapmaking was discussed.
International artificial intelligence research centres around neurophysiology (computer modelling of brain functions) and semiotic (reproduction of human reasoning with the help of sign systems). Application is diverse. The Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics has developed a system to solve geometrical tasks, while artificial intelligence is helping doctors make prompt diagnoses and select the best treatments for patients.
Sergey Zalivako, the Chairman of the OSTIS-2012 Organising Committee, notes that investigations may simplify human labour. Belarus is developing all areas of artificial intelligence, with the conference providing an opportunity for Belarusian scientists to adopt foreign practices and demonstrate their experience.
