LIRS Assistant Professor Roman Lavrenov presented a scientific article on the topic:
«Modelling delivery system for a smart hospital in Gazebo». The authors of the report are LIRS post-graduate student and Research Assistant Ramil Safin, Roman Lavrenov, Professor Elena Maslak and Professor Evgeni Magid.
Roman shared his impressions after speaking at the International Forum KDW 2021:
«Unfortunately, not all experts who take part at the KDW 2021 forum have a complete image of the mechanism of artificial intelligence and suppose that it can be used to solve any problem. From abstract solutions to their real implementation, artificial intelligence requires significant improvement and setting up configurations, and even after that it will not be able to solve the assigned tasks for 100%.»
