Nguyen Anh Tuan formulated the concept of a future master’s program: “Students will be invited to join the AIWS Young Leaders community and will have an opportunity to develop leadership skills in solving practical problems. They will be set an ambitious task to create a strategic concept in the field of artificial intelligence. Students transform into innovators, incredibly charismatic, able to attract and inspire. The Michael Dukakis Institute will support them throughout their careers.”

ETU “LETI” and the Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation are planning to award double diplomas, the prestige of which will be ensured by a high level of educational programs. Students will receive a diploma only if they successfully master the curriculum and pass all the tests by solving all the tasks set by professors.

Another important step in the development of relations between partners will be the establishment of a Center of Smart Data at St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University LETI, a key node in the development of artificial intelligence in Russia. ETU “LETI” will provide the necessary infrastructure, including a site for the Center and a hardware and software system.

The Center’s strategy will be aimed at advancing Russian science in artificial intelligence, setting and solving problems, creating global advanced ideas and concepts, and inviting leading teachers from Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Northeastern University to advise the center on ways to solve these global problems. ETU “LETI” will attract the foremost authorities from St. Petersburg and all Russia to work at the Center.

“The main goal of cooperation between ETU “LETI” and the Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation is to prepare future world leaders who will lead the international community to a better, more prosperous and peaceful future using artificial intelligence technologies. Graduates of the program will become strong leaders capable of developing initiatives in the field of artificial intelligence to solve problems in the high-tech era.
