15 JULY / 2019
Two large-scale international events took place in Yekaterinburg, the Innoprom jubilee industrial exhibition and the GMIS-2019 Global Summit of Production and Industrialization.
As part of the exhibition at the stand of the Russian Export Center, the Clover Group company, a member of the Ctrl2GO Group, presented an expanded line of functions of its proprietary solution, Ctrl@Maintenance, based on the Clover platform. A smart system using artificial intelligence technologies and predictive analytics was created to switch to "smart" fleet management. The solution optimizes the costs for vehicles service and maintenance, and allows control over the quality of driving, adjusting fuel consumption and real-time monitoring of the cars' technical condition.

The company's developments for the transition to innovative service models were also presented at the stand of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation. Over four exhibition days, they were shown to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, representatives of federal and regional authorities, industry departments, state corporations, as well as large industrial Russian and international companies.

Representatives of the Ctrl2GO Group also took part in the business program of the exhibition. Denis Kasimov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Clover Group, shared his expert opinion and presented the company's experience in the field of artificial intelligence-based development during "The Real Economy on the Digital: Practices of Implementing Artificial Intelligence Technologies in Industry" discussion.

As the participants in the discussion noted, artificial intelligence technologies were widely developed and included in several national projects in Russia. Nevertheless, some fundamental questions remain open: the value and quality of the analyzed data, the distribution of responsibility between human and artificial intelligence, as well as the problems of transition to new business models and standardization of innovative developments.

"The first problem we encountered was the low quality of the data and the level of trust in it. To solve it, we created a whole layer of algorithms, analyzing the data's reliability and allowing us to determine its quality by indirect signs", Denis Kasimov said, "The next step is the certification of our solutions, a demonstration of their transparency, which in turn is the key to competitiveness. Today, the Clover Group collaborates with research institutes that are thoroughly testing our algorithms. We are already in the process of obtaining certificates for all available equipment models."

Ekaterina Solntseva, Digitalization Director of Rosatom State Corporation, Artem Natrusov, EVRAZ Vice President for Information Technologies, Alexey Belyakov, Vice President, Executive Director of the Skolkovo Foundation's Advanced Production Technologies Cluster, Alexander Smolensky, Tsifra's Business Development Director, and Adrien Danier, president of Nauka Innov, also attended the discussion. The meeting was moderated by Alexander Fertman, head of the Department of Science and Education of the Skolkovo Foundation.

All the participants agreed that artificial intelligence as one of the "cross-cutting" technologies is one of the priority areas of development, including as part of the national technological initiative. With active cooperation between business and government, the use of innovative developments in single conjunction with natural intelligence will bring the desired results to industrial companies and increase their competitiveness in global markets.
