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 160 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.

International Business and Global Values: Risks and Opportunities for Creative Industries in the Next Stage of Development
Today, defining and demonstrating one’s values is a way of self-identifying. People like to highlight the things where they contradict others. Note that there are fundamental discrepancies in the philosophies shared by whole groups of countries. There are countries that conform and agree with each other on everything. They also believe the things they agree on should be made compulsory for everybody. Yet, there are countries that share a different logic. Even if 80% of values are common, they would normally stick out the remaining 20%, which are unique to them

Big Challenges and New Partnerships: How to Unite Science and Society
When the Year of Science began, we asked to conduct a sociological survey. We asked whether people would like for their children to choose a job in science. Most of the respondents want their children to go into science. This was never the case in the Soviet Union or in modern Russia. [...] This means that science is not something strange

Is (Artificial) Intelligence Possible Without Mathematics?
Today, taxis in Moscow, and in St. Petersburg, do not drive without GPS. <…> We should realize another thing: one day it all would shut down. A research in the US shows that 90 percent of Americans would not be able to find their way home. <…> In Moscow the number would be from a third to a half, I think

Is (Artificial) Intelligence Possible Without Mathematics?
We must understand what we mean by artificial intelligence. There is strong artificial intelligence and weak artificial intelligence. The strong AI is something that does not need our full support to develop; that is, we provide some starting points and then the system begins self-improving. The weak AI is something that serves as an extension of a human body, as our tool. <…> If we want to co-exist with this new reality, it is important to understand from the very beginning what rules and what laws will govern this new reality. We need it, so that we do not find ourselves in a complicated situation which will require all our energy and resources to neutralize it. It is an issue of our security

Trialogue of Dialogues: St. Petersburg, Sochi, and Trianon

Trialogue of Dialogues: St. Petersburg, Sochi, and Trianon
Interpersonal dialogue – dialogue between people – is today perhaps more significant than at any other time in history. This is also an issue regarding education, of educating people in the broad sense of the word. It is not about getting degrees, but understanding one another better. <...> Cast your minds back to the FIFA World Cup. <...> It was a remarkable event where people saw that what they read did not reflect the actual situation

Nature-Like Technologies: Responding to Major Challenges
What do we call major challenges? These are the problems and opportunities to which we cannot respond to within the existing order of things. The problems, tasks, opportunities are so significant that they require another scientific and technological approach. The key problem is to move on to another logic of our coexistence with nature
