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.

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.

Court Automation: Robot Judges on the Way?
1 July 2022
It was 30 years ago now that Deep Thought first tied Grandmaster Anthony Miles in a chess tournament. Nine years later, in 1997, Garry Kasparov, the thirteenth world chess champion, played a super match against IBM’s Deep Blue. Four years ago, the legal robot LegalApe 2.8 proved that computers were ready to participate in a high-level simulation of a real legal dispute. Many legal institutions, like some other areas of human activity, have shown potential for algorithmic development, which involves the use of a clear sequential tree of conditions and decisions leading to specific legal conclusions. The text of many legal acts is based on logical constructs of a similar nature: if a party has committed a certain act, there will be a certain consequence, if the party meets certain characteristics, it is entitled to a particular status, and so on and so forth. As a result, the possibility of automation has been explored for a straightforward category of court cases that follows an algorithm prescribed by procedural codes and considers formal circumstances alone when issuing a judicial act. It was cases of precisely this category that were automated for a pilot court project that took place in the Belgorod region. A virtual assistant justice of the peace was developed to analyze incoming applications for court orders from the Federal Tax Service and prepare drafts of court orders based on the established algorithms. Can AI successfully be used to automate and streamline court processes and free up judges to focus on real legal disputes? Might we see a full-fledged autonomous robot judge in the near future? We’ll be looking for the answers to these and other questions in our roundtable discussion.
