Moscow, August 8 - Neftegaz.RU. The Company has acted as an industry partner in opening of the Master's program "Machine Learning Engineering" (AI Talent Hub) on the basis of ITMO University, Napoleon IT and the Almetyevsk State Petroleum Institute.
There will be an inverted format applied for the training performance: from Junior to Middle level professionals. There will be a joint AI laboratory ALMET Data Team established, as part of the interaction for the students to carry out the oil industry data analysis.
10 participants of the AI Talent Hub master's program will study in the online format, work in the laboratory building of the AGNI, while living at the modern campus of the Higher Petroleum l School. This is an opportunity for students to work in TATNEFT, participate in projects relevant to the Company and have an internship in the project teams of the ALMET Data Team.
The plans provide for launching a joint project on AI and the oil industry data analysis, as well as biotechnology in September. The Senior/Middle+ mentors from Napoleon IT Company and TATNEFT employees will be involved in the work of the AI Talent Hub Master's Degree Students to implement the project. As a result, the Master's Degree Students will present the first MVP results of applied projects with a real effect from the implementation of solutions based on the data analysis at the Rock&Science Conference for defense.
Andrey Glazkov, Head of the PJSC TATNEFT’s Human Resources Department:
“Artificial intelligence and biotechnology are promising areas that can change the entire existing industrial life pattern. TATNEFT strives to introduce the most modern accomplishments in these areas. Our task today is to train high-class professionals who capable of creat\ing their own advanced solutions.”
Dmitry Botov, Project Manager of AI Talent Hub:
“We see that TATNEFT has a huge potential for working with heterogeneous data, data engineering and machine learning, and a significant backlog in modeling, building digital twins in crude oil production processes, modeling and digitizing data taken from wells at the drilling locations. The processes of crude oil production and crude oil exploration are labor-intensive and extremely expensive. We will connect talented guys from the AI Talent Hub who are ready to get involved in complex data projects, as well as mentors and experts from the AI Talent Hub to optimize the said efforts using artificial intelligence methods. We hope that such cooperation will result in the establishment of a competence center in Almetyevsk, which will solve complex problems in the projects using machine learning technologies.”
Konstantin Price, Commercial Director of Napoleon IT:
“The creation of strong outstanding professionals is possible on the basis of real tasks only that TATNEFT possesses. We shall fill in the shortage of personnel in the market and train professionals for the Company who will create a digital data platform for TATNEFT and develop new technologies and products with artificial intelligence on its basis. The trained personnel will solve the problems of the oil industry and bring new technological products onto the domestic and global markets”.
