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 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.

Connecting Our Brains to Computers: A Panacea?
3 June 2021

Neural engineering is one of the most exciting interdisciplinary technologies today, and it is having an impact on neurophysiology, computer science, computing, and robotics. In the future, its effects will be felt across the humanities and social sciences, particularly in ethics, sociology, psychology, philosophy, law, and finance. A better understanding of how the brain works, or rather how it’s built, how it’s formed, how it learns and how it interacts with other body systems can have a huge influence on the development of neural interfaces and artificial neural networks. Global brain-computer interface market was valued at USD 1.2 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate of 15.5% forecast for reporting period. According to Grand View Research projections, the global computer interface market will reach USD 1.72 billion by 2022. What is a brain-computer interface and how can it serve people, society and science? What strategic objectives should IT look to solve in the field of neural interfaces? How can IT developments meet the needs of neurophysiologists? How is the global economy shifting (and the world in general, including its social order) in the context of the large-scale proliferation of neural interfaces?
