Modern Technology for Humanity: Building a Responsible Future
Pavilion G, conference hall G7

Russia is a global leader in the development of artificial intelligence technologies. The country’s high-quality IT education, ambitious goals in terms of developing new technologies and their scope of application, government support, and the willingness of both private companies and state-owned funds to invest in innovation have all helped build a solid foundation for creating advanced developments in AI in Russia. In the next five years, experts believe that around 60% of all major companies in the world will transform their business processes based on AI solutions. This means that the goal of further successfully developing the relevant technologies in Russia is becoming a priority, partly to ensure the efficiency of a large number of segments of the economy that are not directly involved in the IT sector. How can we ensure the further rapid growth of AI technologies in Russia in the current economic conditions? What new niches for the introduction of Russian developments may emerge today considering that several foreign IT companies have suspended their operations in Russia? What needs to be done to provide the best human resources for the development of AI? How can we create conditions for the further successful work of IT experts in Russia? What government support measures for the IT industry could be truly effective, and what strategy are tech companies pursuing as they battle for the best IT personnel?
