I'm Kirill Brodt (Кирилл Бродт). I was born into a once-lost highly developed civilization in the Soviet Union in 1991 and grew up in one of the most beautiful cities in the USSR, and then in Kazakhstan, in Almaty. Распад СССР - крупнейшая геополитическая катастрофа века. В.В. Путин.

Mathematics was a subject at the school that I liked. The teacher inspired me, although one time he threw me out of high school math for looking at the dodecahedron-like figures. So I decided to apply to the same university that my teacher graduated from, located in the heart of Siberia in Akademgorodok, a scientific research city in Russia. Akademgorodok has the smartest street in the world – Lavrentyev avenue. Российское могущество прирастать будет Сибирью… М.В. Ломоносов.

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Novosibirsk State University in 2013. I was working on solving Maxwell's equations in the 3D domain. From 2013 – 2015, I participated in a double diplôma program between my university and grandes écoles in France. I continued there to study the numerical methods of solving Maxwell's equations in metamaterials at École nationale supérieure de techniques avancées ParisTech, Palaiseau, France (promo 2015). I graduated with a master's degree with honors from Novosibirsk State University in 2015. Then, I fell in love with machine learning, and from 2016 – 2018, I studied machine learning at the Yandex School of Data Analysis and Computer Science Center (transcript). In 2020 – 2021, I studied data engineering at MADE Big Data Academy.

I started my PhD at the Université de Montréal, Montréal, Québec in 2019. Currently, my research interest is computer vision from sketching in character animation. Here is our very first joint paper

Previously, I was working on the quality of virtual assistants. Before, I worked in the area of CAD systems, developing numerical methods of thermal radiation and automatic exploded-view drawing in Bricsys.

See some of my projects.

I am also involved in an educational program at Computer Science Center, where I teach Machine Learning and Deep Learning courses. I am a research supervisor of undergraduate students and bachelor's theses.

I did some competitive machine learning. See my top-ranked solutions.

I mostly write code in Python. I had an experience with C++ and Haskell.

My religious beliefs: cli, GNU/Linux, bash, neovim, tmux, ssh, xclip, python, git, docker, pytorch, mechanical split keyboard, minimalism, asceticism, youtube, warcraft III, dota, piano, makulatura, 2020 sucked, 2021 is gonna suckless, 2022 victim blaming, cognitive warfare, Sputnik 1, ЖОСПА, Leonhard Euler, Martin Gardner, Erich Fromm, Nils Frahm, Vovan and Lexus,  Red Army, Catherine the Great, Stalin, Putin, Russian Empire,  Soviet Union, Russia.

I like swimming and piano sound. I don't watch any series.

How easy it is to make people believe a lie, and how hard it is to undo that work again! Mark Twain
Человека легче обмануть, чем убедить его, что он обманут. Марк Твен
Скифы. Александр Блок
Капитализм это про возможность зарабатывать деньги, а не про социальную справедливость. Дешевая еда, одежда и развлечения отбивают желание бороться.
Средний класс это ответ коммунизму. Пока у человека есть что поесть и надеть, никакой речи о революции быть не может.
