Sberbank chief Gref offers to create AI ministry in Russia
SOCHI, Feb 7 (PRIME) -- Russia may establish an artificial intelligence ministry, German Gref, head of the countryТs biggest bank Sberbank, said on Wednesday at a forum.
УIn business literally everyone is engaged (in artificial intelligence), and the government is involved as well,Ф Gref said.
Creation of the ministry is Уa brave solution.Ф УI donТt think itТs only a PR task. Of course, itТs PR on the one hand, and on the other hand, we should thoroughly think, perhaps, that it makes sense to create such a ministry,Ф Gref said.
The United Arab Emirates has been the first country in the world to appoint Omar Bin Sultan Al Olama, aged just 27 as the minister of state for artificial intelligence in October 2017.
