My name is Mykola Liashuha. I am currently a student at University Paris-Saclay, pursuing Artificial Intelligence Master’s degree. I have graduated from Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv with Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering. My career started during the second year of my studies as Full-stack engineer, though I have drastically changed my specialization after an Erasmus+ exchange where I had discovered a field of Artificial Intelligence. Having already more than a year of experience as a Machine Learning/Computer Vision Engineer, I received Labex DigiCosme scholarship for 2020-2021 years with an amount of 12.000 euros for 12 months.
Now I am finishing my first year at the university. I am more than delighted with a broad range of available courses at the university. The current program has brought me an opportunity to discover other fields of AI (such as NLP, etc.), dive deep into « old-school » Machine Learning approaches, and even organize my own challenge for other research fellows. As well, I am having an internship this summer at MICS Laboratory on the topic of Breas Cancer Detection using High-resolution images.
This year of 2020-2021 has brought a lot of challenges due to pandemic situation. But despite this fact, this grant helped me to feel totally secure in terms of finances, and buy any essential equipment for remote workflow that I needed. As well as, DgicCosme also covers the payment for internship.
