AI or Not to AI? Artificial Intelligence is Invited to Lead
According to IDC, the spread of the COVID-19 will lead to an explosive increase in spending of AI worldwide.
Digital transformation has accelerated several-fold, and it is AI technology that helps businesses remain more flexible and competitive.
Artificial Intelligence can also play an important role in helping companies and society to deal with large-scale problems caused by the COVID-19 restrictions. All public sectors are expected an increase in AI investments. A shortage of employees and supply chain failures will lead to the need of automatization of all production processes.
The AI development strategy and the Federal Project are designed to change the development strategy of the entire Russian economy and economy of many countries.
