In order to achieve the goals of the updated National AI Development Strategy until 2030, and also, first of all, to ensure the country’s economic growth through the use of AI, it is necessary that all government bodies be actively involved in the development of AI. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Economic Development of Russia Maxim Kolesnikov during the panel discussion “Limits to the depth and efficiency of AI development in industries and regions.” The event took place as part of Artificial Intelligence Day at the Russia exhibition.

Maxim Kolesnikov, in particular, noted that one of the key innovations in the updated strategy was specific measurable goals to achieve the objectives set out in it. And the main thing is the total GDP growth by 2030 in the amount of 11.2 trillion rubles.

“This indicator will be distributed: each sectoral department will propose its own activities in order to more actively implement artificial intelligence,” the deputy minister emphasized.

Another important aspect of the strategy is the creation of new computing power. For this purpose, a set of measures will be provided, for example, priority preferential lending. The goal is to provide research centers and small companies with access to such facilities.

Artificial intelligence strategies also provide for the growth of the market for services for the development and implementation of AI solutions by 2030 by 5 times.

“Our task is to create such a market. By increasing grant measures for various teams in the early stages, the volume of support for the implementation of AI solutions. And at first, this support will be provided within the framework of a federal project,” explained Maxim Kolesnikov.

Finally, an important set of strategy goals concerns the creation of new AI research centers and fundamentally new education and training programs for specialists. By 2030, about 15.5 thousand such specialists will graduate in Russia, added Maxim Kolesnikov.

As part of the panel discussion, a presentation of the Index of Intellectual Maturity of Economic Sectors, Social Sectors and the Russian Government System also took place. She was presented by the director of the National Center for AI Development under the Government of the Russian Federation, Sergei Nakvasin. According to him, the study is, first of all, a management tool that assesses the level of implementation of AI technologies in industries and the social sphere.

“The state has set itself the goal of dramatically accelerating the implementation of artificial intelligence technologies. The positive effects of this are obvious. but you can only control measurable objects. The presented study quite accurately describes how deeply artificial intelligence technologies have penetrated into various areas of our state and, more importantly, allows us to make a forecast for the future,” commented Sergei Nakvasin.

One of the main results of the study, according to the director of the NCRII, was the conclusion that if the current pace of AI implementation in industries is maintained, by the end of 2025, about half of Russian organizations will already be using new intelligent solutions in their business processes.

At the same time, the existence of support measures can provide additional incentive to solve this problem, shared Kirill Kayem, senior vice president for innovation at the Skolkovo Foundation.

“In 2023, Skolkovo supported 17 projects in the field of AI worth 820 million rubles under the Artificial Intelligence federal project of the Ministry of Economic Development. in 2024, this tool will continue to operate, and we will soon open a competition for applications. If you understand which corporate customer you are developing AI technology for and are ready to sell it by offering him 50% co-financing from the state, then come to us, we can support you,” said Kirill Kayem.

The number of cases of constituent entities of the Russian Federation on best practices and social effects using artificial intelligence (AI) included projects in the Kaluga region. They were introduced by Deputy Governor Dmitry Razumovsky. He also discussed how AI is being used in different fields and industries.

For example, voice robots have been introduced in regional MFCs and on hotline 122. In medicine, the Celsus system is successfully used for digital image analysis. AI is used to monitor illegal deforestation. Kaluga residents are currently developing a project to monitor the sky to control and detect drones.

As part of Artificial Intelligence Day, Maxim Kolesnikov and Director of the Department of Strategic Development and Innovation of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development Valeria Vorobyova visited regional stands at the Russia exhibition and got acquainted with the startups and artificial intelligence technologies presented.

At the stand of the Chelyabinsk region, the project “Smart mirror ArtikMe” from the company “Innovations for Children”, included in the MTK register, was demonstrated. Over the past two years, their innovative products to eliminate speech problems in children have received recognition both in Russia and abroad, attracting the interest of not only educational and correctional organizations, but also medical ones.

“The Russian Ministry of Economic Development provided serious support to our startup: thanks to subsidies and grants from the ministry, we were able to implement a number of projects. And the department’s assistance in obtaining certificates made our product accessible to a wide audience and emphasized our commitment to quality and safety in the children’s sector. We have no less ambitious goals ahead. Through joint efforts we can achieve them,” said Deputy Director for GR Anton Nurkenov.
