Aliaksandr Autayeu portrait

I am a Research Fellow member of KnowDive group and collaborate with Fausto Giunchiglia. I do research in knowledge management and semantics with a focus on knowledge maintenance via gamification and crowdsourcing. I have recently received a PhD degree in Information and Communication Technologies from the University of Trento.

Previously I received my MSc in Mathematics from Belarusian State University.

For several years I worked as a Software Engineer at NIIserv Ltd., a small software company specializing in development of human resource management systems for large enterprises with tens of thousands employees.

I am currently a contributing member of Skippervela association. In the past I volunteered as a skipper assistant for cooperativa sociale Arché, which works in social sphere and uses a specially designed and equipped sailing boat for sailing therapy.

Great ideas stimulate and entertain my mind, that is why lately I volunteer at TED and make «ideas worth spreading» available to a wider audience by translating TED talks from English into Russian. I take great care to preserve the essence of every talk and individual style of every speaker, searching for the best idioms and expressions, which would get to the idea into hearts and minds of Russian audience. I am top Russian translator at TED and I coordinate the work of Russian section. I work in close collaboration; I appreciate and enjoy the support of my fellow TED translators and reviewers.

My interests range from a variety of topics in computer science, such as semantic matching, natural language processing, knowledge maintenance, gamification, crowdsourcing to photography, languages, polyhedrons to sailing, volleyball and hiking in the mountains.
