The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Is (Artificial) Intelligence Possible Without Mathematics?
There are products for which it is not important how they work, whereas it is the result that is important. For example, music recommendations. I do not think you would be interested in the algorithm. <…> If we take something serious, say, healthcare. You do not want to bring your test results to the doctor who would upload them to a black box and the black box would provide a diagnosis that you have not expected. <…> You would demand an explanation. I think, you should always divide products into those you can experiment with without thinking so much about mathematics, and those whose functioning must be transparent

Strategy for Integration of Science, Education, and Business
Today, all higher education institutions have a good understanding of the need to integrate strongly with business, but business, for its part, also realised long ago that it is impossible to hire students and train them as they used to do. <...> We taught students data analysis from the 4th grade, it was good, because they could study, say, at the Moscow State University, from the 4th year to go to us in the evenings, to finish their studies, and then started working for us. <...> At some point we realised that this was not enough, that we needed to integrate more. We opened the School of Computer Science at the Higher School of Economics, and things improved. On top of the obligatory basic education courses we introduce practical courses right away. Then on the third course, our students are placed on an internship, after which they are more or less ours

Who Stands to Win in the Global Competition for Supremacy in Artificial Intelligence?
First comes the fundamental mathematical education, and then it should be topped with programming, data analysis and all other applications related to artificial intelligence. Companies should do that together with the state

Who Stands to Win in the Global Competition for Supremacy in Artificial Intelligence?
Our company now has a 50% growth in proceeds. <...> The whole company is built on artificial intelligence; we do not have anything else. 100% of our proceeds come from the AI technology

Maths in the Digital Age
The right thing to do in schools is not to begin by writing out figures, but by showing how beautiful and important mathematics is. It is important to demonstrate how, in today’s world, much in mathematics is tied in with algorithms. The people who attain success will be those who can combine a good knowledge of mathematics <...> with strong communication skills.

The Digital Economy and Education: Changing the Paradigm
We do need people. What’s more, we need the cleverest, strongest, and most well-rounded people. But in order <...> for them to come into being, we need to build a large feeder system. For example, by secondary school we need children who have shown an interest in programming to actually start attempting it

The Digital Economy and Education: Changing the Paradigm
This school year, 100 junior mathematics classes were launched via our platform. It works like this: a teacher <...> can, presuming there are tablet devices in the classroom, assign a task during the lesson via the platform. If the classroom is not equipped in this way <...> then the teacher can simply give homework via the platform. <...> Teachers have said that their job has become much easier. They really like the fact that they don’t need to spend excessive time on marking homework – about a third of their time has freed up. Essentially, we help teachers spend more time on actual teaching
