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 160 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.

Artificial Intelligence in Service of Business: Creating a Competitive Advantage
26 May 2018
14:15—15:00

Today, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are provoking plenty of interest, even among those who have little to do with information technology — although who can really say that these days? Experts believe that AI will be able to respond to the global challenges facing humanity: scarce natural resources, a lack of access to high-quality education and healthcare, and even poverty. Unfortunately, much speculation and mythmaking surround these promising areas. Artificial intelligence has practical applications in almost any business. But which are the main areas that could benefit? Banks and retail chains, medicine, or the industrial sector? Will the AI specialist be the profession of the future? During our discussion, we will discuss the criteria for the success of AI in business. How may AI change traditional approaches to management and decision making? In which business functions might AI create the biggest competitive advantage? What is the right way to implement AI solutions — how do we separate the hype from real economic performance?
