Sberbank President and Chairman of the Board Herman Gref believes that it is impossible for humans to compete with artificial intelligence in terms of the amount of knowledge, but artificial intelligence cannot make decisions in conditions of uncertainty. He expressed this opinion today during the Gaidar Forum.
“Artificial intelligence has appeared today. On the one hand, we are worried about what will happen to us. And we cannot compete with artificial intelligence in terms of the amount of knowledge. There you can get any knowledge much faster and more extensively. But what artificial intelligence cannot do is decision-making under conditions of uncertainty, ” RIA Novosti the head of Sberbank.
At the same time, he lamented that it was precisely the decision-making in conditions of uncertainty that “we don’t teach children at all”.
“And, say, such a subject as ‘decision making’ does not exist in the school curriculum. Moreover, in most universities, the theory of decision making, the theory of decision making, is absent. … This is one of these very soft skills that a child needs to be taught starting from elementary school, ”Gref is convinced.
We also recall that the priorities of state policy in the field of technological development of Russia for the coming years will be quantum and genetic technologies, artificial intelligence, blockchain and new energy sources. This was announced on September 23, 2020 by the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Andrei Belousov in the Federation Council.
According to him, first of all, support will be provided to promising technological groundwork “on end-to-end technologies in the interaction of the state and the largest companies.”
As the first deputy chairman of the government pointed out, “these are, first of all, such end-to-end technologies as artificial intelligence technologies, quantum computing and technologies of new materials, quantum sensing, blockchain technologies, microelectronics, the Internet of things, 5G technologies, quantum communications, energy transmission technologies and new energy sources”.
In addition, Belousov added, it is important to tackle the accelerated development of genetic technologies.
Earlier it became known that the Russian authorities in the next 4 years will allocate about 12 billion rubles to support small IT companies. This was announced on September 1 at a meeting with young scientists and entrepreneurs in Krasnodar, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
According to him, it is planned to help small domestic companies engaged in development in the field of artificial intelligence.
“A corresponding program for the development of artificial intelligence has been adopted for four years, but the most important thing is that it provides special grants that will be allocated for the development of small startups and companies that are already present in large numbers in our information technology market within four years. Over four years, about 12 billion rubles will be allocated to help 1,200 startups, ”the head of government said.
In general, he warned, there is high competition in the field of IT technologies, so promising ideas need to be implemented as soon as possible.
Mishustin believes that the program for the development of the digital economy should include not only funds to support the sphere, but also the possibility of accelerating programs.
