Dmitry Chernyshenko and Borge Brende signed a memorandum on the establishment of the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Russia

On the Russian side, on behalf of the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, the memorandum was signed by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, on the part of the WEF – by the President of the Forum, Börge Brende.

The center will help in the implementation of global WEF projects in Russia, as well as in adapting the best world practices for Russian digital business. Leaders of the global IT industry, industry, science and business, as well as leading Russian companies and government agencies will unite on one platform to study and implement the latest IT developments in Russia.

Dmitry Chernyshenko noted that the Government, together with the regions and business, has already done a lot of work on digital transformation, one of the national goals outlined by President Vladimir Putin. This, for example, the transfer of public services online or the introduction of electronic document management, which simplifies the life of both citizens and businesses. Also, on behalf of the head of state, the Government is developing Russian software and working to increase the demand for microelectronics.

“Today Russia is in the active phase of the formation of the digital economy, which affects all industries, social sphere and public administration. We are now witnessing a breakthrough development that has no analogues before. The main goal of creating the Russian Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution is to increase the recognition of Russia in the world expert community and the opportunity to exchange accumulated experience and expertise with the WEF and its partners around the world. Next year, together with the WEF, it is planned to deploy projects in the field of the application of experimental legal regimes, artificial intelligence and the Internet of things. The first of them will be launched before the end of this year in the field of unmanned vehicles, medicine and data processing. Russia, by the way, has been actively introducing artificial intelligence technologies for the past few years. Today there are more than 800 such solutions in the country, and some of them are already visible on international markets. In general, cooperation with the WEF will be carried out in various areas: data policy, urban mobility, export support and promotion of Russian IT technologies in foreign markets, ”said Dmitry Chernyshenko.

“The rapid development of technology is destroying the old economic and social systems. Coordinated joint action is needed to manage these changes, said Børge Brende. – The new Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Moscow will become an important part of the global network of the forum. It is important to leave borders behind for the benefit of working together, shaping a global technological future. “

Dmitry Chernyshenko added that the center will be created on the basis of ANO Digital Economy. A corresponding agreement was also signed between the autonomous non-profit organization and the WEF.

“We are delighted to join the global network of centers of the fourth industrial revolution. Our organization brings together the leading digital companies in Russia. Together with their leaders, we will study and adapt the best international practices in the field of artificial intelligence, the Internet of things, data regulation and other promising areas for the development of the digital economy, as well as contribute to the promotion of Russian practices in other countries, “commented the CEO of ANO Digital Economy Evgeny Kovnir.

The Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution will help build systematic collaboration and constructive dialogue between Russian IT companies, government and international structures, as well as expert communities from around the world.

The Deputy Prime Minister also noted that the center will begin its work on October 15. Its key tasks for the next two months will be the formation of an executive committee and the preparation of a work plan for 2022.

The global network of the fourth industrial revolution was launched in 2018 by the World Economic Forum and is an international platform for cooperation focused on the management of new technologies and digital transformation.
