The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

What artificial intelligence can and cannot do (yet) for your business?

Today artificial intelligence seems to be everywhere. Moreover, AI will be in just about every product and service we buy and use. And at the same time, concerns about AI’s implications are rising: we worry about the impact of AI-enabled automation on the workplace, employment, and society.

AI’s challenges and limitations are creating a «moving target»: it is hard to reach a leading edge that is always advancing. In addition, when businesses discontinue to race, there is a yawning divide between leaders and laggards which can readily be seen, for example, across and within some sectors.

Main limitations associated with the AI application include data labelling (tagging) needed to train the system in creating respective commands and handle massive data sets amounting to thousands of data records to become relatively good at classification tasks and, in some cases, millions of them to perform at the level of humans. AI processes and techniques are quite difficult to explain and understand. They summarize all accumulated data which creates a barrier to the adaptation to certain situations.

Finally, one more problem is a focus on algorithms and built data chains rather than deviation from them. Nevertheless, methods for using complicated data sets, fresh thinking, adaptation and constant update of AI knowledge and skills can be seen as a solution to the above problems. You should use and try to use the most innovative ideas and trends to remain competitive and always stay ahead of your opponents on the way to the «moving target». If you wish to become a leader in this field, understand key important issues thwarting AI development progress and are able to utilise available leverages and tools to overcome these limitations, then this article is what you need.
