The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Artificial Intelligence for SMEs: Opportunities and Prospects
15 June 2022
10:00—11:30

According to a Stanford University report, investment in artificial intelligence is at the all-time high. To quote the report: «the total global investment in AI, including private investment, public offerings, M&A, and minority stakes, increased by 40% in 2020 for a total of USD 67.9 billion. M&A made up the majority of total investment.» In Russia, a gap was emerging at the same time. While large companies, especially IT giants and the financial corporations, have successfully implemented artificial intelligence systems to optimize their business processes, SMEs have had very limited budgets for the integration of IT solutions or complex technological products. Today, this gap is closing. Neural network-based solutions are becoming available to SMEs, both in terms of budget and in terms of the lack of need for separate skilled personnel. Nevertheless, the question remains for many entrepreneurs: what exactly can artificial intelligence do for their business? What can a neural network improve business processes and what benefits will it bring? What should be considered when implementing AI solutions?
