Nikita shared new methods of using artificial intelligence by corporations and state institutions in Russia, prospects for using non-standard methods for data analysis and related results. Much attention was paid to the digital transformation of business and the specifics of the work of geographically disparate project teams. The conference participants got acquainted with the specifics and business value of machine learning in applied tasks.

Not everyone needs digitalization. In the banking sector, IT technologies will become the basis for a new financial system, while it is difficult for the real sector of the economy to adapt to modern conditions. The participants of the profile conference, which was organized by the Graduate School of Management, believe that the development of innovations causes consumers to have high expectations.

Potential customers are confident that with the introduction of IT, goods will become cheaper and services will be rendered faster. However, for example, in the metallurgical industry, the use of robots will not fundamentally affect the production technology, so it is unlikely to speed up the process many times. It’s the same with autopilot — it will simplify, but not reduce the transportation of cargo.

According to experts, many enterprises use new technologies, not because they really need them, but because they are trying to follow fashion. Earlier in the State Duma, InfoWatch CEO Natalia Kaspersky reproached the deputies that they were promoting the Digital Economy program, almost without considering that this could entail new threats to business.

Representatives of traditional enterprises emphasize that it is possible to evaluate the productivity of a particular technology only by integrating it into the full production cycle. Such experiments, for example, in heavy industry are fraught with large losses. Sergey Dunaev, Information Technology Director of Severstal Management, comments.

In turn, representatives of the banking sector note that the old business models will be ineffective in the new conditions.

Last year, German Gref refused to develop Sberbank according to the old scheme, offering to create an “ecosystem” out of it. He considers Western technology companies, such as Google and Amazon, to be the main competitors. To compete with them, credit institutions, fintech companies and the regulator will have to actively cooperate, coming up with a new scheme of work in the market. The state will help them in this, It has already taken over the storage of biometric data of customers.

Olga Dergunova, Deputy President and Chairman of the Management Board of VTB Bank, discusses the future of financial organizations. According to some participants of the discussion “Management of the Future’18”, in the near future business managers will not be needed. Artificial intelligence will become a kind of coordinator of the workflow, while it will no longer be necessary to control employees. The principles of “debossing” are adhered to, for example, in Sberbank Technologies, where everyone is responsible for the services provided. Whether innovations will take root in the Russian market depends on today’s students, who will have to work in fundamentally new conditions, the conference participants concluded. Artem Koltsov, Chairman of the Expert Council on Digital Economy and Blockchain Technologies at the State Duma, continues.

Recall, according to the atlas of new professions, which was developed by ASI instead of Skolkovo, logisticians, tour operators, waiters and lower-level bank employees will disappear in Russia by 2030. Cybertechnicians, personal security designers, designers of virtual worlds and producers of the semantic field will appear instead of them.
