About us

Yandex Research is a team of scientists focusing on fundamental problems in machine learning.

What we do

We study computer vision and self-driving cars, natural language processing and speech technologies, search and recommendation systems. Our research helps to improve the technologies in Yandex products. We also publish our findings at leading machine learning conferences and contribute to the community by organizing competitions, workshops and tutorials.

How we support the community

A creative and collaborative scientific environment is essential for productive research in most fields. We strive to develop the Russian academic community through collaboration with students and universities. For instance, we launched a machine learning residency program to provide an opportunity to grow for early-career researchers. Also, in collaboration with scientists from world-leading universities, we organize projects that move machine learning forward.
