More than 150 teams from different countries of the world applied for the first tour of the competitions. Only twenty best national teams arrived to France to take part in the finals, including teams from Russia, India, Germany, Spain, Brazil, USA, France, etc.

According to the participants from Russia, face-to-face competitions are always hard to handle. Participants have to make up solutions to different tasks for a very short period of time. The secret of our team’s success is that students took fundamental ideas as a basis and developed them in the correct direction.

Russian students of cybernetics faculty have won the first places at this tournament before. They took the Champions’ title in 2015 and regained this title this year.

Data Science Game is unofficial world championship on data analysis, processing and presentation of the digital information among students of information technologies’ faculties. The list of participants includes leading universities from all over the world.

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
