Dear developers, I am very interested in participating in GSOC-2017 by 
working at one of your exciting projects.
     I am a student from Moscow State University, Faculty of 
Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics, currently pursuing my 1st 
year of a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics and Informatics. My 
main areas of interest areArtificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. 
The topic of my scientific research is GPU-accelerated neural networks. 
It is focused on image recognition, I investigate how the architecture 
of convolutional neural network and GPU characteristics affect the time 
consumption of forward propagation for a batch of images. The main 
technologies I use in scientific work are CUDA and cuDNN libraries (both 
for C++) for programming neural networks and Python for results 

     I have experience with reinforcement learning tasks, for instance, 
inspired by DeepMing articles, I trained neural network (using Keras 
framework for Python) to play famous game Flappy Bird much better than a 
human can, that's why I am very interested in GSOC project connected 
with reinforcement learning. Also I participate in Kaggle competitions 
and coded my own small library in Python with most useful functions, 
such as cross-validation, parameters tuning and stacking models. So, I 
am also interested in project about creating API for cross-validation 
and models tuning in mlpack.

Thank you for your attention!
