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 155 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.

Prehistoric People in the Digital World: Creativity, Content, and Artificial Intelligence
2 June 2021

Walter Benjamin wrote: «That which withers in the age of mechanical reproduction is the aura of the work of art.» In the era of digitalization, the actual process of creativity is losing its aura. Robots paint pictures. Artificial intelligence composes music. Virtual theatres and museums have appeared in Minecraft. In February 2021, the artist Beeple’s collage sold as a non-fungible token for nearly $70 million in London. The pandemic has resulted in digital technologies penetrating all facets of creativity and radically changes to the industry, creative processes, and consumers. How does digital technology affect consumer preferences? What content format is becoming the most popular in the era of digital ecosystems? Can digital art replace real art? Will the works of the digital world become more popular than the paintings of great artists? Can artificial intelligence take the place of famous artists, performers, and writers? What kind of society is it where people are engineers and programmers, and creators are computer programmes?
