Last month, Russia held a conference where they brought together some of the foremost Russian and international leaders on artificial intelligence and natural language processing. This first time ever and well-attended event featured over 20 presentations.

BSR-Russia brought this news to our attention in their article, “Russia’s first artificial intelligence conference focused on natural language processing.” This first event was considered a success and the participants were offered opportunities for networking, discussions, sharing of ideas and expertise, and forging new ties for business.

Semantic technology on some level still seems new to us here, so for this to be Russia’s first conference on the topic, it is a good starting point.
