The future of digital technology after the end of the pandemic caused by COVID-19
20 May 2020
10:00—12:00

The Roscongress Foundation, the Innovation Space project, and the Data Economy Independent Non-profit Association (INA) continue the Breakfast in the Digital Realm online discussion series on hot topics of the Digital Economy national programme in online discussions with state and business representatives. The next discussion of the series, which will take place on 20 May at 10:00, will deal with the future of digital technology after the end of the pandemic caused by the new COVID-19 coronavirus infection.

The growth of digital technology in 2020 may be bogged down in a tangle of many-directional factors. Just as in the atypical pneumonia of 2003, when a boom in e-commerce was recorded, the epidemic of the new type of coronavirus favours digital transformation across the board, while digital economy under pandemic conditions is becoming the new driving force of economic growth and plays an important role in sustaining countries’ revenues.

In addition, over half of the planet’s population have changed their consumption pattern once they found themselves quarantined. Cross-industry applications for keeping infection at bay were found for many digital solutions. This helped to renew the dialogue on overcoming regulatory barriers. All these factors undoubtedly opened up new opportunities for growth of digital solutions based on AR&VR, 5G, robotics, artificial intelligence and other technologies.

Under these circumstances, the Government of the Russian Federation, formed early in 2020, that was planning to clarify the objectives and results of the national programme, including ensuring rapid implementation of digital technologies in real economy, now has more allies as well as new challenges.
