A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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.

Art. Creativity. AI
Initially, it is not the Artificial Intelligence that writes the code for Artificial Intelligence. Terms of reference are the foundation for all AIs. This is what we develop. We will write something that will evolve step by step. <…> Yes, we generate something. Terms of reference cannot be underestimated. I keep saying everywhere I go: ‘Guys, do not strive for an all-purpose Artificial Intelligence – we do not need it. <…> It needs to be target-specific’. If we use AI in music as a tool, we need to understand what we are doing it for. If we use it for painting, we need to understand our purpose. It means that terms of reference are key, and this is something done by creators,

Goosebumps are what makes things created by people different form AI. <…> You will truly enjoy [the product created by AI, – Ed.] and you will learn something. Yet, no goosebumps. <…> It does not mean that you [developers, – Ed.] are unbale to trigger emotions – you will definitely trigger them. <…> I do apologize but it is not just about the inner processes – it is also about the inner light. I am a mathematician and I am telling you all neurophysiologists <…> claim that some things happen outside of the human mind. Some things are propelled by the unconscious. <…> These goosebumps are something a biological entity brings into its biological world,

There are really important, narrowly focused solutions that truly improve processes […] And then there is […] an ecosystem that creates a fog from which we won’t necessarily have a positive way out. Because if something is launched with errors, unfinished or raw, and at such a level of a global system, the cost of this error will also be globally systemic

At present, the technologies that we know have learned to put sentences together, and they are now learning to recognize the territory of meanings. The next stage, when a robot emerges be-yond this territory of meaning as an individual guided entity, this is precisely be when emotions are generated [...] This is a rather complicated story because a machine can lie. It can generate [...] fake content on its own

Talk to Me: AI and Voice Technologies in Business
In our work, we encounter a machine taking decisions that we have not programmed […] It’s not all that scary. It’s not completely a ‘black box’ since we are following an anthropomorphic model […] You have a ‘black box’ inside that prepares action scenarios for you, the same way artificial in-telligence systems are arranged. There’s no need to be afraid of this. You need to learn how to operate with it

Talk to Me: AI and Voice Technologies in Business
These systems are being introduced […] for a reason. It’s a question, including the complex cost of business, not for the current moment, but for a horizon of 5–10 years […] The main currency in this regard is […] the amount of data and the ability to train your AI. Data access is the currency of the next decade […] And when we are evaluated as a company that has soared ten times in value in a year, we have soared in value not because our turnover has skyrocketed ten-fold […], but because the data that we have amassed is unique […] and we have created uniquely smart brains
