Alex Dainiak was born in Moscow in 1985. He had his first encounter with programming in 1998 while studying a Pascal circle and discovered he loved it. After working for some time as a programmer, he turned to mathematics. Alex Dainiak now considers himself a professional tutor and applied mathematician rather than a programmer. Nevertheless, he still produces a reasonable amount of code from time to time and takes part in personal and collective software development projects.

Research/Academic Interests:
Graph Theory, Combinatorics, Data Visualisation, Discrete Optimisation

The main benefit of the student passing the course is the opportunity to structure the knowledge they already have gained from courses of machine learning, probability, algorithms and data structures. The measurable goal is a working prototype of a search engine having all the traditional steps of data flow implemented.

AND WEB SEARCH 

The web search has been one of the major applications for many applied computer science and data analytic tools for the last two decades, and still remains being so. We’ll consider a typical architecture of a modern search engine, including crawling unstructured text data, building data index, information storage, user query analysis and result ranking. Eventually we’ll build a tiny, decent search engine from scratch
