A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 133 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 70 countries worldwide.

Modern Neurotechnologies and Their Influence on the Development of Human Capital
26 May 2018
Interactive session with an ‘emotion detector’:
During the first part of the event, Kirill Kaem, Senior Vice President for Innovations at the Skolkovo Foundation, will deliver a speech and answer questions from session participants about creating start-ups in the field of neuro- and bio-technologies. During the session, Mr. Kaem will be connected to a neurointerface monitoring the electrical activity of the brain. Event participants will be able to observe the speaker’s emotions, which will be displayed on the screen in the form of an animated robot avatar.

Demo of Neuromafia Game:
Neuromafia follows the same rules as the well-known game of Mafia. The only difference is that some of the participants wear neurointerfaces in the form of headsets, allowing other players to see their emotions on screens. Interfaces bring new possibilities to the game and make it more exciting: not only will the players need to recognize emotions, but also to interpret them correctly.

An Introduction to Neurotechnologies in Virtual Reality:
An interactive demonstration of applied solutions will link the possibilities of virtual reality and neurotechnologies. During their presentations, speakers will elaborate on case studies that allow using and assessing neurotechnologies in the real economy and education. Finally, the participants will have a chance to learn how modern neurointerfaces are set up.

SPIEF Youth Day participants will have the opportunity to assess the outlook for the development of various neurotechnological solutions in practical terms, and to offer ideas for new areas in which they can be applied. The following neurotechnologies will be introduced during the session:

NeuroVR: a graphical representation of a virtual reality headset, controlled by a neurointerface.
Emotian: an augmented reality screen. The camera captures and analyses the faces of visitors seen through the lens with the help of artificial intelligence, displaying an evaluation of their emotional state on the screen.
Neuro: emotion recognition and analysis with the help of a neurointerface (neuro-headsets).
Exoskeleton: an electrical manipulator controlled by a myogram. Visitors will be able to operate an electric manipulator (a mechanical arm) remotely (using the power of thought).
