31% of Russians fear a technical failure II


Project office for implementation of the National Program “Digital Economy” of the Analytical Center under the Government of the Russian Federation (AC) and the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion
(VCIOM) is a study on the attitude of Russians to artificial intelligence (II) technologies.

Most citizens (75%) have heard about artificial intelligence technologyHowever, only one third understand its essence – 29% of respondents were able to identify II, and 38% said
the scope of its application. The content knowledge about II is more often possessed by the youth of 18-24 years – 42%.

“… They are wary. On the one hand, Russians recognize the inevitability and necessity of developing AI technology as providing a strategic advantage in technological
the revolution, on the other, reads the same alertness, largely driven by misunderstandings, how specifically the implementation of AI will affect the daily way of life, “- said the director of work on
Kirill Rodin, the governmental body of the VCIOM

Most Russians are positive or neutral about the spread of artificial intelligence. 48% of the population expressed interest, admiration, inspiration,
technology trust, 31% were neutral, 7% were surprised and other emotions, and 12% expressed negative emotions. Against this background, citizens are most positive about the potential implementation of the second century
spheres: science (72%), industry (69%), transport (66%).

The negative attitude of the population to the II is mainly related to the possibility of technical failures (31%): 17% of the respondents cited problems in the work of equipment as the reason, 8% – the exit of cars from under
control, 6% believe that the whole person is more reliable.
Also, a negative attitude is caused by a threat to personal data security (21%) – breaking and stealing personal data
(12%) and disruption of personal space (9%), unpredictability of perspectives (5%), lack of knowledge about the consequences of implementation (12%) and the perception of the bad impact of substitution interaction between
people (16%).

«…artificial intelligence for me or for me, will not take a new technological solution my place, will I remain needed by society? »

Russians declare a high level of readiness for personal use of services based on II technologies. The highest willingness to use services with use
artificial intelligence on public services (68%), household tasks (54%), leisure and entertainment (54%), and in areas such as health care and
diagnosis (52%) and education and guidance (44%).

The survey results also refute the stereotype about the negative impact of artificial intelligence on the labor market: 68% of the population are not afraid of human replacement by II century technology
their profession.

The majority of the population (87%) believes that the state should promote the development of artificial intelligence technologiesFirst and foremost through the creation and financing
vocational education programs (38%). At the same time, more than half (59%) of the population would not like to undergo artificial intelligence training in the next few years. among the proposed
directions of the state policy in this area have found support of the population: the program of retraining of personnel (36%) and the program of introduction of artificial intelligence in the systems of public health and
education (35%). Respondents also consider it necessary to provide financial support to companies engaged in the development of II technologies (35%), to improve laws in this area (34%) and
to introduce technologies in the system of receiving state services (34%).

VCVGD survey was conducted in October 2019 in the form of a telephone interview on stratified two-core
a random sample of fixed and mobile numbers of 1600 respondents.

In the United States, a C-V2X transport and environment exchange system is being implemented

In the United States, a C-V2X transport and environment exchange system is being implemented


The joint project aims to improve road safety with the help of C-V2X communication technology. Implementation will begin in the third quarter of 2020

Audi of America, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Qualcomm Technologies announce plans for initial deployment of communications
Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) information exchange technologies. The system is scheduled to be deployed in northern Virginia. for communications
The portion of the 5.9 GHz band that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has proposed to allocate for C-V2X systems will be used.

Road C-V2X basic channel will be used to alert the road works and the time of approaching the regulated intersections on the highways.
Security messages between vehicle and infrastructure are minimally delayed. Less important messages will be transmitted on the C-V2X via the network.

The initial phase of the project is designed for connected vehicle systems designed to improve the safety of school buses, warn drivers of dangerous road conditions,
reducing congestion of vehicles in bottlenecks and sidewalks. It is also expected to improve the performance of automated vehicles that will be released soon, and
enable vehicles to transmit warning signals to mobile devices, which will in the future prevent fatal pedestrian accidents (now on US roads)
more than 6000 pedestrians die each year).

The authorities assume two scenarios:

  • Particularly important on the freeways, project participants consider a roadwork warning scenario. It uses a Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution to the onboard display of an Audi car
    Q8 SUVs with low latency are receiving increasingly frequent warnings about the presence of workers on the route.

  • On highways, the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution will convey information about the traffic light phases and their duration in an Audi Q8 SUV. In these cars is implemented
    Audi Traffic Light Information (TLI) service, which informs the driver of the time remaining until the green traffic light is turned on. The C-V2X can also transmit directly from the traffic light to
    vehicle data that will be used by the TLI system to adjust the phase and duration information of the traffic light.

Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) is a contract developer of the software and systems needed to support the major scenarios,
intended for initial deployment. After developing the software, the institute will demonstrate the use of C-V2X technology in these scenarios.

In the first phase of this project, the C-V2X solution uses the specifications 3GPP Release 14 and Release 15. Direct communication is carried out in the 20 MHz band (5.905 – 5.925 GHz) in the ITS band
(Intelligent transportation system), which the FCC proposed to allocate for the C-V2X systems. Plus the technology is that it involves switching to 5G using the specifications of 3GPP Release 16.

C-V2X systems use both direct short-range communication in the 5.9 GHz range and long-distance communication through networks of cellular operators. Available chipsets support both types in one solution
communication at the same time, which facilitates the introduction of technology.

Currently, commercial C-V2X products come in the form of various micro-platforms, wireless modules, onboard units and infrastructure roadside devices.

transformation of the Russian economy and government.

The emphasis should be on expertise in technology and attracting the most promising startups, – said Oberon CEO Eugene Yashin.

“I highly value his professional qualities. We have known each other for a long time, working together to develop e-government. Maksut Igorevich knows the industry well, ”says Shadaev’s predecessor
Konstantin Noskov.

As Mykola Komlev, Executive Director of the Association of Enterprises of Computer and Information Technologies, commented in the media, Shadaev has some experience of interaction with industry,
is expected to simplify the industry’s dialogue with him. We hope that the engagement with the ministry, which usually takes about a year, will be much faster, he said.

In turn, Alexander Osin, an analyst with the operations management of the Russian stock market, believes that Shadayev’s appointment as a minister will not have a significant impact on his IT-backed industries.
Only fundamental reforms of the entire country’s economy can change the situation.

“Improving the dynamics of key IT industries, such as profitability, innovation and the ability to export products and services, is only possible through the economic process
sanitation. This process, it seems, should include a significant number of factors that are beyond the reach of the Ministry of Communications. To solve basic economic problems, the Ministry does not
has the resources, ”the expert commented. Point ministry programs will not provide significant lasting, long-term effect, he believes, and new ministry leadership will
the hostage of the situation.

digitization by touch

digitization by touch


Nikolay Koldirkaev

How is the country looking for a way into the digital economy? Why are digital technologies slower than they would like? We are holding the pulse of digitization 2020.

Digital transformation of the economy in the world has been talked about for 19 years. Initially, within the framework of the Industry 4.0 concept developed in Germany, the digitization of the manufacturing sector with
using sensors built into virtually all equipment components, the widespread implementation of cyber-physical systems and the analysis of all available data. Then the term was delayed so that its vision
Digitization today has the owner of every coffee shop. There’s both factoring and blockchain loyalty … digital business connects even with bots in chat rooms and SMM, but the main
the smell of ground coffee is still a sales tool.

Banks spend insane amounts on cloud technology, artificial intelligence, big data processing and large-scale implementation of biometric identification protocols, but still send
where the map was made.

No, I do not want to say that digitization in the sense of “add to the mind of business processes” is not good – it changes our lives and changes for the better, but I am constantly worried about the question: is there
Are there any results from the implementation of technologies that have only been talked about in our country for at least a decade? What is the point of transition to the digital economy?

In our country, the task of digitalization was given the status of state on December 24, 2018, when the decision of the Presidium of the Council under the President of the Russian Federation for strategic development and
national projects approved the passport of the program “Digital Economy of the Russian Federation”. The passport describes the tasks of digitizing the economy, as seen by the government and the president.

Verbatim
“The key goals of the national project are to increase internal costs for the development of the digital economy, to create a high-speed and secure information and telecommunications infrastructure.
transfer, processing and storage of large amounts of data, accessible to all organizations and households, using predominantly domestic software by government
bodies, local governments and organizations. ”

A year has passed, and it is quite appropriate to ask the question: how is digitalization in practice? And the main conclusion is slowly. Digitalization. It’s coming. Very. Slow. And there is still a lot to do
many.

business

Big business is interested in empowerment and productivity growth. He is ready to deploy digital solutions using cloud services, artificial intelligence,
big data, blockchain, etc. But are developers ready to offer the right product?

Yes and no. Bring CRM or accounting to the cloud – many integrators can, love and practice. Several major players are successfully implementing their ERM systems. And here is the real application
solutions using cryptography and blockchain – you won’t find a day with fire. The vast majority of Fintech products are at best in the MVP stage, which for real application requires
saw and saw. Plus the price for such fun spoiled by easy venture money developers will not make. Personally, the developers of one seemingly fast blockchain claimed to have them
the average check is $ 20,000. But the implementations are one, two, and all. And those are not to call great.

So it turns out that the introduction of modern digital technologies in Russia is much slower than in the US, China or Japan. At the same time, returning to coffee shops, domestic small business
is in the forefront of implementing factoring solutions and blockchain loyalty programs. Paradox.

There is a feeling that business and developers do not see or hear each other. Big business is in no hurry to implement untested solutions. And innovative companies are in no hurry to give out good ones
for quick and easy product implementation. At the same time, venture capital investment in technology startups through ICOs ended with innovative companies
R&D, have successfully mastered all the funds and want more, and companies would already like to see what came out of their funding, and instead have on their hands constantly falling in price tokens and not
ready for MVP implementation. Vicious circle.

city

The concept of “Smart City” has been developing since 2017, when the Ministry of Communications on behalf of the President developed the program “Digital Economy of Russia”. But the problem is that it is even theoretically true
a smart city, without quotes, can only be built from scratch. However, the digitalization of some elements of urban infrastructure is already changing the way we live.

Inhabitants of big cities use public transport or parking every day, which for the last 20 years is digitized significantly. Simple equipping of jigs with mobile
terminals led to the Krasnodar tram and trolleybus closure last year with increasing profits.

At the same time in some other big cities it is not possible to pay for the travel with a bank card, but you can trace in real time in the geoinformation application where you need it
municipal transport unit.

Road cameras now not only record speeding, but also the intersection of a continuous, movement on a dedicated lane of VT and violation of the rules of exit at the intersection with the waffle marking.

High-speed mobile connections have become available. But free municipal Wi-Fi is in decline – as a rule, you can only catch it near the administration of the regional center. And something is not
fact.

regions

Digital technologies go to regions with great difficulty. And the problem is not seen even in digital inequality – fiber has now been extended even to islands. The problem is more about total inertia. in order to
to become effective by modern standards, urgent digitization is subject to agriculture and regional transport.

Here is a simple example. The Sochi Investment Forum 2020 will be launched in Sochi for a moment. A status international event. But train tickets Tuapse – Adler online you do not buy. more
in order to find out their cost (415 rubles., No thanks), you will have to call the Railways hotline. Well, where does that go?

That is, the regional carrier failed to even publish the ticket prices. In a society that is broadly so, on the path from information to
digitally, a federal passenger company lets you consider a wagon scheme, select and buy a seat in the train, and a regional one does not even indicate prices.

On the other hand, it cannot be said that the local authorities do not deal with the problems of digitization. But if we talk about the Krasnodar region, then the local authorities understand it somehow one-sided. For them
digitalization is the only window for investors, database, site. That is, in essence, just information technologies that in their view can serve to attract investment and development
economy.

At the same time, other agrarian regions are already planning or are in the process of introducing digital agriculture, digital agriculture and even intelligent agricultural production. In December
last year, the governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory announced that a digital agriculture center would be established in the region on the basis of the agricultural technical school in Uyar.

In the Ulyanovsk region at the local agrarian university in January 2020, gathered the heads of districts to get acquainted with the Internet technologies used in the agroindustrial complex, examined the “Smart Digital Farm”, the laboratory
digital agriculture, training center for digitization and robotization of agricultural machines.

And even the head of the Chelyabinsk region suggested that the Regional Ministry of Agriculture consider additional opportunities of modern digital technologies of precision agriculture. And the Krasnodar region is still creating
window for investors. Super!

FIGURES AND FACTS

According to a study conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia in 2019 in 85 entities of the Russian Federation, 20% of them show a high level of development of T and
implementation of technological solutions in agroindustrial complex, in 29% of the regions the average is recorded.

leaders

Speaking about digital transformation, it is necessary to understand that in our country this process is centralized, digitalization goes from the center to the regions, and goes very slowly, for rare
exceptions.

According to the results of the national rating of the Russian fast-growing technology companies TechUspeh, the most innovative enterprises are in
Moscow, St. Petersburg and Perm.

According to the rating, the best performance among fast-growing companies was demonstrated by Rubetek, a Moscow company that markets smart home technology (small business category, growth)
revenues over the last four years – more than 300%), Digital LLC, a company engaged in the development and implementation of technologies for digitization of industry (medium-sized companies, revenue growth –
90%) and the biopharmaceutical company Nanolek LLC (large companies category, 79%).

Among the most innovative enterprises were TechnoSpark LLC (a category of small companies), the leading Russian manufacturer of telecommunication equipment for spectral sealing of LLC T8.
(Midsize Category), designer and manufacturer of integrated circuits = JSC PKC “Milander” (large companies category).

where we are going

Returning to the beginning of the article, I want to point out that the adoption of digital technologies, the transition to “digital” thinking is slow, but it’s going. There are a huge number of digital technologies on the market, but their implementation
it is hampered by the fact that executives do not always have the understanding that their business processes are subject to immediate digitization. Which will increase efficiency and increase profitability. but
even if there is such an understanding, there are not always resources to implement these plans.

Also relevant is the problem described in the classic dialogue between the characters of the story “Monday begins on Saturday”:

– We need a programmer.

– Everyone needs a programmer.

On this basis, it sometimes seems to me that the widespread statements of CIOs about the importance of soft-slip are pouring water into the wrong mill and cause technicians instead of
to unlock in their technological niche and / or subject area, look for the path to the tops of information technology management, but eventually return to that activity,
which is really good.

Also remember that the word “digitalization” is just a term that is now at the height of popularity. And in fact, we’re watching a long series called this one, which may have already jumped over
the shark and each successive series will be more and more boring from the original idea.

Therefore, I would state the following of my article. Instead of thinking about digitization for a long, long time, you should do it. He got up in the morning – started digitization. Before after
or instead of charging. If you want to be healthy – get hard. Introduce the numbers in business – do not be shy. And we will win.

Digestive pandemic and the danger of self-medication

Digestive pandemic and the danger of self-medication


Ivan Kozlov

Pandemic (Greek Πανδημία – “the whole nation”) is an epidemic,
characterized by the spread of infectious disease
throughout the country, territory
neighboring countries, and sometimes many countries in the world.

By modern standards, more than 15 years ago, in 2004, Nicholas Carr published a high-profile article (“Does IT Doesn’t Matter” in Harvard Business Review) and then a book (“Does IT Matter?”) IT turns into some kind of everyday life like electricity or
water supply system with sewerage. These things at one time revolutionized, but then became commonplace and are no longer perceived as a competitive advantage. At the dawn of the new millennium IT, in particular
automation, were on the crest of a wave, and the article elicited mixed reviews – someone agreed, but most argued. Now computers and special information systems are available to everyone, from the big ones
corporations to private entrepreneurs. The automation seems to have covered everything from the factories to the cleaners at the hotel, which mark the tidy rooms on the iPads.

It would seem that we have achieved what Nicholas Carr wrote. But here the automation came to be replaced by digitalization, which is often called digitalization from English digital, or digital
a transformation that promised business not only accounting and savings, but also new ways to make money through information technology and numbers. And literally in a couple of years with no one known
words, as an epidemic, spread throughout the world, in all industries and fields not only business, but also public administration and in general to all spheres of daily life. now about
digitization and the digital economy are talked about in evening news on television and discussed in bars and hairdressers.

Is this a new industrial revolution and a change in approach to everything we know, or is it another marketing move to push money for obscure technologies?

During the widespread automation, the information flows were affixed to the side, long established since the last (third) industrial revolution, and said that now
material flows should always be accompanied by them because it helps accounting and management. Indeed, thanks to automation and the emergence of information flows, transparency has increased
manageability of the business. And at the subconscious level, everyone continued to believe that material flows are much more important than information – because real money is there, in materials. Even if the server
“Flight”, the shipment can be done on paper invoices, and enter the system later – in business, this will not affect.

But suddenly we saw examples of withdrawing money from purely information flows. Everybody knows examples of Uber – the largest taxi without a single car, booking.com and Airbnb.com – the hotel business
without hotels and apartments and more.

This “virus” struck the minds of those who made money on old material flows. After all, they also have information flows, but they do not bring money. Sometimes companies share their information
with an outside company that can make money. Nobody noticed how it happened when at first the information was worth nothing and then suddenly it became clear that it could be earned
HUGE money.

But what is information that differentiates it from data and knowledge? What is it and what does it follow? By the way, there is still no single answer, and various sources interpret these concepts
differently, but it is important that people began to distinguish between data and knowledge.

CDO: Heracles or Munchausen?

Without going into the definition, knowledge can be extracted from the data, but not all data is suitable for acquiring knowledge from them. And then there were experts in extracting knowledge from the data. the first
CDO incarnation (which is Chief Data Officer) – ie Chief of Data. As a rule, they grew up with marketers who are in the company and so responded to the relevant for the company but abstract
questions like “what do you need in the market?” based on unclear data sets available to the company. They became responsible for all the data collected in the company, so that they were collected and
were processed in such a way that in the future it was possible to extract knowledge.

In the well-fertilized field of information technology, a second CDO incarnation, Chief Digital Officer, has emerged. They emerged as a result of the evolutionary development and interaction of the CIO and
the first CDO. Before the new CDO was set a simple and clear task – to perform feats. In Ancient Greece, Heracles was tasked with clearing the Augean stables. Hercules came up with an innovative one
method of clearing the stalls with running water. So, CDOs are doing similar tasks now, just instead of pus in their mountains of data and business processes. And their task is even more difficult – not easy
clean them out, and reap some benefits and profit. And to do it day by day, from nine to six.

There was another mythical character who performed the feat every day – known to all Baron Munchausen. His talent is now appreciated even more – he was able to tell about his accomplishments
a feat so that everyone around him believed in his need, exclusivity and irreplaceability.

All modern CDOs are divided into Heracles and Munchausen. Some feats are accomplished, while others embellish their stories in such a way that it is no longer possible to distinguish truth from fiction. To
Unfortunately, we hear the stories more often. A feat, like a true digital breakthrough, is quite rare, and it is simply not possible to put it on the stream in every company.

Digitization sometimes produces technologies, although useful, but not transformational for the company. In large companies and government agencies, a large request for
digitization. The company data has really accumulated a lot, and the trend of accumulation is growing exponentially. And according to the law of F. Engels and
materialistic dialectics
, Quantity should once go into quality. But, unfortunately, not everyone is destined to remove the cream from this process and not everyone knows how to do it. However, everyone wants it. That’s it
it turns out that once there is a demand for something abstract and not fully understood – there will be a lot of fraudsters ready to cash in on it.

The revolution is being made by those who have nothing to lose

The problem is not so much that companies are a big believer in scams and paying them money, but also that the concept of digital transformation is being devalued. Under the brand of digitalization sell and
The Internet of Things, and blockchain, and robotics, and a host of other technologies that are good in themselves, but not about transformation, but about evolutionary development.

Digital transformation is a revolution. When it comes, it sweeps away all those who have evolved evolutionarily. It is useless to automate a taxi business, improve business processes and reduce costs.
When Uber and Yandex arrive, they change the landscape and stay underneath them to adjust or die. No blockchains or sensors in cars in a separate taxi park will save him unless he starts
play by the rules of Yandex. Taxpark can hire a CDO, but it will not make it more digital than Yandex. The example of “Taxovichkov” in St. Petersburg is therefore confirmed.

The digital pandemic has already transformed several sectors of the economy, no one knows where and when the next transformation will take place. But so far history shows that it comes not from the industrial
market players, but somehow out of the corner, where you don’t expect at all. The revolution is being made by those who have nothing to lose.
