The meeting participants were students and graduates of the Crimean Federal University, Crimean engineering and pedagogical University, as well as young people, whose interests include the development of media and Internet technologies. The meeting was opened by a welcoming speech of Deputy Minister of education, science and youth of the Republic of Crimea Konstantin Alikin.
As part of the open dialogue, German Klimenko spoke about why it is already too late to create a ”silicon valley“ in Russia, gave examples of placement in depressed regions of companies that produce not only unique products for the region, but also prepare highly qualified personnel.
“Most of the current officials do not have a clear understanding what the Internet is,“ German Klimenko said, answering the question about legislation in the sphere of the Internet regulation. According to the Adviser, the state often falls behind with decision-making in the field of high technology.
Many issues addressed IT companies and successful Russian practices, work of artificial intelligence and interaction between the humanities and natural and technical disciplines.
German Klimenko stressed that artificial intelligence can do a part of a human’s job — it will sift mediocre specialists from the industry, and the qualified ones will have more work. ”A professional will always have bread,“ he concluded.
The Adviser to the President advised young people to develop their own innovative ideas, rather than trying to change and improve foreign hardware and software.
“How one can secure one’s personal data on the Internet?” — asked one of the participants of the meeting.
“Society always pays for progress. We balance between the advantages that innovation provides and risks from the use of technology,“ the Adviser to the President said. The speaker advised to wisely use the Internet resources that require the input of personal data, as now no one can give a one hundred percent guarantee of data security.
At the end of the meeting German Klimenko thanked the audience for the interesting and topical questions and wished the participants to continue self-education and to learn popular professions of the IT sector.
