D-tech just started to finance the first research project. Researcher of the Institute of High Energy Physics (Tbilisi State University) Davit Janezashvili, (Professor Revaz Shanidze’s team), won the D-tech IT company grant competition to fund research in machine learning and quantum computing.
“We are happy to start collaborating with Davit Dzanezashvili. His project is interesting for us in terms of using quantum computing in research. In addition, this project is important for Georgia, as TSU Institute of Higher Energy Physics is conducting scientific work on the international project KM3NeT.
“The study of Dzanezashvili, provided the goals are achieved, will make a significant contribution to the development of world science. We wish David to achieve the goal of the research,” said Liana Berberashvili, Director at D-tech IT company.
KM3NeT is a research infrastructure that includes the next generation of neutrino telescopes. Upon completion, the telescopes will have detector capacity ranging from megatons to several cubic kilometers to fresh seawater. KM3NeT, located in the deepest waters of the Mediterranean, will open a new window into our world, but will also help us to study the intangible properties of neutrino particles. For all this, within the grant competition, the IT company D-tech allocates 3 types of necessary resources: Monthly scholarship in the amount of 1000 GEL Access to Amazon Braket TN1 – 72 hours Support for editing, styling and publishing articles on arXiv resources.
“So far we have received 2 applications, one of which was approved and became the winner. The second one concerns the application of machine learning algorithms to agriculture. Once the experts give the final evaluation to the project, we will definitely announce the second winner as well. We would like to remind you that we are ready to allocate another 9 grants by the end of 2021. (For more information on terms and conditions, visit the ioli.digital project website). I want to thank Professor Revaz Shanidze and congratulate researcher David Dzhanezashvili on winning the D-tech IT company Research Grant Competition,” commented the project manager of ioli.digital and Relocater CEO Stanislav Sabanov.
