Moscow hosted A! ONE Conference on Artificial Intelligence on December 14-16 2018, where scientists had a chance to meet with representatives of large companies that implement high-tech projects.
According to forecasts by major analysts, the development of artificial intelligence technologies will lead to rapid growth in entrepreneurial activity. Very often, scientists do not understand how you can turn your idea into a product that will be useful to the humankind. At the same time, business representatives are poorly aware of what technologies are available. In order for all elements of this system to interact correctly, the A! ONE conference is organized.
In addition to various training reports of master classes and networking opportunities, representatives from successful research laboratories, investment funds, start-ups and corporations will share with participants.
Scientists were interested in the speeches of Mikhail Burtsev – the head of the neural systems and artificial intelligence laboratory of MIPT; Pavel Volchkov – a scientist in the field of genomic engineering of MIPT; Maxim Sharayev – a scientist from Skoltech, performing diagnosis and prognosis of treatment in such areas as neurosurgery, neurology and psychiatry.
