NUST MISIS Scientists First in the World Learn How to Create Two-Dimensional Materials with Controlled Semiconductor Properties

Humanity already knows how to turn light into electricity and how to create batteries without chemical reactions, but these devices have very low efficiency. Nanomaterials based on two-dimensional structures show the most promising characteristics, however they are very difficult to obtain, and scientists struggle to control their properties.

NUST MISIS Scientists Invent How to Determine Catalytic Activity of Potential Catalysis without Experiments

The search for catalysts of chemical reactions is a classical example of empirical science, when to discover a response it is necessary to act through an exhaustive search or, as scientists joke, through unending trial and error. Materials which have very similar properties can have completely different catalytic activity. Up until now, scientists have only been able to measure this activity.

VisionHack —First International Hackathon on Computer Vision for Unmanned Vehicles

From September 11th- 13th in Moscow, NUST MISIS and Cognitive Technologies will hold the first university hackathon on artificial intelligence and computer vision with an available prize fund of more than $30,000. Teams from MIT (USA), the University of Cambridge (Great Britain), ASU (USA), the University of Science and Technology Beijing (P.R. China), UPC (Spain), and leading Russian universities have already announced their plans to participate in the hackathon.
