Decision-making Rules Least Susceptible to Manipulation, According to Science
HSE researchers have used computer modelling to demonstrate the varying manipulability of decision-making procedures and to identify those least susceptible to manipulation. Their findings are published in the paper 'Manipulability of Majority Relation-based Collective Decision Rules'.
What to Expect from Science in 2017: Mathematics
In the field of mathematics, forecasts are made not for the upcoming year, but for centuries ahead. However, today, the opposite process is taking place in it. And this may result in a crisis for mathematics over the long-term. At the same time, other trends might reinforce the field thanks to the growing number of links between different areas of mathematics.

Computers to Spot Pedophiles
Concept lattices can help spot pedophiles on the web. Researchers of the HSE's Department of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence have helped the Dutch police create a computer program that can detect internet pedophiles and even determine how dangerous they can be.

Artificial Intelligence Helps Combat Human Trafficking
Modern slaves are not physically shackled, and their captors do not look like slave traders. It is not easy to detect criminals involved in human trafficking. An international team including researchers of the HSE's Department of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence have been helping police develop a methodology for combating human trafficking. Their software, based on formal concept analysis, helps process numerous police reports and identify potential suspects and criminal networks

Mathematicians Help Detect Domestic Violence
Mathematical science can help with the detection and classification of offences. In the Netherlands, the lack of a reliable automatic police report classification system was seriously hampering the detection of domestic violence. An international group of researchers,* which included Associate Professor of the HSE's Department of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence Dmitry Ignatov found an effective solution. They proposed an automatic classification method which allows for faster detection and response to domestic violence.

“Big data” help doctors choose a treatment method
Over the course of 20 years, since the beginning of contemporary medicine’s transition into a digital format, a vast amount of largely unused data has amassed. The analysis of these data and the extraction of a new logic of control from them is one of the most popular areas of focus in applied mathematics, Oleg Pianykh, a Professor in HSE’s Department of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence and an Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School, said in a report. His report, “Big Data in Medicine: How to Make them Work,” was presented at HSE’s academic seminar “Mathematical Models of Information Technologies.”
