My name is Andrei Kashin, and I’m currently working on core research infrastructure at DeepMind. Prior to coming here I developed distributed computation platform YT at Yandex. At the same time I studied and teached courses at Higher School of Economics and Yandex School of Data Analysis in Moscow.
In my free time I enjoy online coding competitions, ranging from standard algorithmic contests like Codeforces and spanning all the way to marathons for developing AI for games (Deadline24, Codingame) and Wargames for finding security breaches in crypto protocols.
Apart from that, I am a keen traveller, love running and playing board games.
