8 Sep talking about the Russian economy being on a digital basis, earlier launched by Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the economic forum in Vladivostok, continued in Perm.

Robots collection Promo brought a friendship with the first persons of the state for a long time. A couple of years ago poruchkatsya with Dmitry Medvedev had a model Promo-2. And now, in preparation for the arrival of Putin, the Promo of the next generation counter-rehearsed speech: “hi, handsome”, “hasta La Vista, baby” — and showed everyone how to alert the President’s hand.

Practiced it for good reason: the handshake has taken place. Moreover, the robot did not make a blunder and found out Putin’s photograph. However, communication with people is the main strong point of the representative of robotics with artificial intelligence (in his device, assured “MK”, the developers actually used the neural network). It was created to work in museums, cinemas, shops, offices and even in the offices of the pension Fund: to greet visitors, show them where to go, and if necessary, to answer questions.

Curiously, the older generation, surprisingly, are not afraid of this generation of modern technology, say the developers. So, grandma came to the store or the pension Fund, strive to tell the robot Promo about their pensions and generally vent. And he listens and shakes on a mustache new words, actively expanding originally laid out in memory dictionary… However, now know quite a lot of Promo and Boyko is responsible even for such tricky questions as “what is the meaning of life?”.

— In life itself — after a little thinking he answered. And he was absolutely right.

Next to the Promo — another invention of the “age of numbers”: a device with software that allows you to speed up 10 times to program the robot for new tasks and thereby save more than half the cost of any project. And after — have gadget for people who have decided to control your weight: the bracelet, counting calories derived from food. At the same time he tells the media, isn’t it time to drink, and also lets you know about the arisen emotional stress — the latter, presumably, to avoid the temptation to “seize” issue. In short, a solid technological wonders, one steeper another.

Showing the President a good person, in dialogue with the head of state joined the aces of the local I. T. industry.

— In recent years we talk a lot about the development of high technology, including digital; adopted a Strategy for the digital economy. But how did you manage to move so? Although the Perm was always an advanced Russian region… (Recall that it was here in 1876, was the first railroad in the Urals, and in 1916 opened the first in the Urals University. — “MK”). Just great! What we have seen is impressive! — summed up what he saw Putin.

However, the main purpose of the President, he said, was to know the opinion of experts “on what has been done in terms of the regulatory framework and what is missing”. And those told him everything.

First, the I. T. sector needs a surplus of personnel, which is not enough. And be afraid of this surplus is not necessary in this sector as in any other, a lot of freelancers. So without the works of AI-Techniki will remain.

Second, you need to start training, “numbers,” not from the universities is, according to experts, it’s too late — and from school. At the same time urgently need to training school teachers of Informatics: today they are taught on obsolete programs. And in another school subject — life safety — it’s time to add rules of conduct in social networks.

Those who have graduated and started to work on their problems. And to solve them, it would be good to extend benefits similar salkovskis, and other major it clusters in the regions.

Putin the idea to do away with preferential monopoly of the “SKOLKOVO” was supported. But at the same time urged it people to implement its flagship product in consumer goods, like irons, and housing: “the People something for the right product in any pay — he explained. — But the industry can throw”.
