2. Robotics Lab
At the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv Faculty of Electronics and Computer Technologies with the help of Softserve a new robotics laboratory, that provides students with learning, research, practice in developing algorithms and the ability to control real mobile platforms, has been opened.
The new laboratory is filled with modern equipment, including modern computers, interactive works and materials for their modernization. All this allows inventors to work on algorithms for higher-level robots – computer vision, speech analysis and more. The lab is also a place where they can work on their own startup.
During the opening of the laboratory, a team of students presented the robot RoDog, which knows 6 voice commands and can orient in space. Work on the project took place in optional classes in robotics, which experienced IT professionals together with the faculty began at the beginning of the study year.

3. IT-Lab Infopulse Data Science & Machine Learning Lab
With the help of Infopulse and the Lviv IT Cluster, a modern laboratory – the Infopulse Data Science & Machine Learning Lab,where students of the Faculty of Electronics and Informatics conduct research in data science, namely automated processing of large amounts of information, has been opened in our University.
“Both very simple things, such as superimposing some effects on an image, which is now very popular, and more complex things, such as analyzing large data sets, predicting exchange rate changes and other things, can be performed here,” – says Vitaliy Parubochyi, Assistant Professor of the Department of System Design, Lviv University alumnus.
Infopulse together with the Lviv IT cluster founded this laboratory on the basis of the Department of Systems Design. New computers have special programs installed. “This is equipment that provides calculation capabilities, namely computing capabilities to practise high complexity algorithms. This allows the team to work as well. Collaborate, analyze, test.” – Lyubomyr Boychuk, HR Director of Infopulse, says.
