Project:  Global Technology Leadership Forum

It is a real invasion of robots now in Sochi: some sort of garbage, others make coffee. To give them a task, it is enough just to think about it.

Pavel Frolov controls the robot by the power of thought. While this is more like entertainment so far, but it is this technology that will probably soon allow the surgeon to operate the patient at any distance with such a hoop on his head, and the pilot to control the aircraft.

Even now, a paralyzed person can operate an automatic wheelchair this way. A device that processes brain processes was printed on a 3D printer. By the way, it can also be launched by the power of thought. All developments are Russian. This is the primary condition to participate in the Global Technology Leadership Forum.

Quantums, fifth-generation communications, sensors, and artificial intelligence are strategic, innovative directions that will become drivers of the development of the domestic economy in the next ten years. The formation of the ecosystem was entrusted to the heads of large state-owned companies, which, together with investors at a forum in Sochi, discussed how to become a global technology leader.

The forum conducted stress tests for all roadmaps, according to which the country should switch to digital economic tracks. Each state-owned company oversees its technology.

“We have four roadmaps. We more defend all. We are going to have the next ones — quantum sensors, then the technology of distributed registry, and tomorrow we are going see the fifth-generation technology, which we are defending together with Rostelecom. And then there will be the Internet of Things,” says Vasily Brovko, Director for Special Assignments, Rostec Group of Companies.

Between curators and innovators are development institutions such as Russian Venture Company. They are looking for promising ways to implement the most significant national project, “Digital Economy”.

“We have considered quantum computing lately. It's such a long, rather difficult scientific and technological task. Still, even there we can see that we can work ahead of schedule and get quite significant economic results,” says General Director, the Chairman of the Board of RVC JSC Alexander Povalko.

The digital economy will be developed in ten directions, plus one federal project on artificial intelligence. The main task of officials and investors is to find teams for start-ups that will work systematically, and not on a single project.

“We consciously were not in a hurry during the year to throw the money from a helicopter precisely because it is essential for us to obtain technological quality. Buying existing solutions at a dual price due to the fact that the actual amount of money is greater — a straightforward thing. But you shouldn't do this,” says Maxim Akimov, the Deputy Chairman of the Russian Government.

Evgeny Gudov, in his business, felt the interest of development institutions in his then-start-up. Quickly applied, received money, and the reporting was simple. As a result, he is already selling the first Russian high-precision robot to enterprises.

Five operations per second, accuracy — one-tenth of a millimeter, it is less than a human hair. Robots work in three shifts without days off and holidays. They are paid off in just one year.
