The Government of the Russian Federation and the World Economic Forum (WEF, Davos) recently signed a memorandum on the creation of a “Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution”, it has already been opened. The center is intended to facilitate the implementation of WEF global projects in Russia. Russia today is proactively building a digital economy that encompasses all industrial sectors, the social sphere and public administration, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, who signed the memorandum with WEF President Borge Brende.

Russia thus becomes part of the global network of the Centers for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which was established by the WEF in 2018. It is an international cooperation platform for managing new technologies and digital transformation. President Vladimir Putin declared the latter to be one of the most important national goals for Russia. In general, cooperation with the WEF will take place in data policy, urban mobility, export support and promotion of Russian IT technologies in foreign markets, Chernyshenko said.

In the coming year, Russia, together with the WEF, plans to launch projects on experimental legal frameworks, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things, he said. The first projects will be launched this year and include autonomous transport, medicine and data processing. Particularly visible, and watched with concern by many citizens, is the already active payment by facial recognition when entering many subway stations or shopping malls. The system is also already being used on some buses in Kazakhstan.

Russia has been actively implementing AI technology in recent years, he said. He said, there are more than 800 projects of this kind, and some have already become visible on international markets. Another goal is to move public services to the Internet and switch to an electronic document flow – to “make life easier” for people. This is because rapid technological development is “disrupting our economic and social systems,” Chernyshenko said. Therefore, “coordinated and effective measures are needed” so that “no one is left behind.”

The cooperation with the WEF should not come as a surprise: Vladimir Putin was once a member of the WEF’s apron organization of “Young Global Leaders,” a cadre school where many of today’s heads of government, captains of industry and acting greats grew up. It was founded in 2004 by the gray WEF eminence Klaus Schwab. In an interview, Schwab himself listed prominent former members such as Putin, Tony Blair and Angela Merkel.
