We can advise you on how to use AI to improve business performance with a focus on industries, tasks, and technologies.
We can share market experience — what products are available, where they are in demand, and the results of their application.
We spread the word about the successes and technological leadership of these companies.
We promote their products and highlight the role of the team in their successes and opportunities.
The Alliance Solution Library will contain cases that have passed multi-stage verification.
The Library Case is a quality mark, mature technology and proven effect for business.
Once a year, an expert jury of members of the Alliance will select the most effective solutions and award them authors with a prize.
Six companies-Yandex, SBER, Mail.ru the Group, Gazprom Neft, MTS and RDIF have joined together to form the Alliance for the development of artificial intelligence. Among the tasks of the Association, for example, assistance with the creation of regulatory documents, support for education, and creation of personnel reserves in this area. More information about how the participants are going to change the IT sphere in Russia, the head of the Alliance Kirill Bulatov told TASS. About a year ago, CEOs realized that they had reached the point where development depends on how fast everything is moving around — how quickly laws are passed to help launch products, how widely technologies are being implemented in the public sector and business. The main prerequisite for the emergence of the Alliance was to combine interests for solving business problems of participants in the first place in the following areas: education, regulatory regulation, communication between market participants, implementation practices and attracting investment, General directions in the field of data analysis. Based on this, the principles of work are built, in which it is said that we do not attract funds from the state. The Association's budget consists of the money of the participating companies. We also focus on tasks that are more effective to solve together, while eliminating competition between members of the Alliance.
