To catch up and surpass the future

VII Far Eastern Forum of Innovative Technologies was held in Vladivostok

To catch up and surpass the future

About 700 IT specialists from Russia and abroad discussed the latest trends in the world of high technologies.

Dalinfocom is a traditional event for the region, which has been held since 2006 with the support of the Government of the Primorsky Territory. For two days, the participants of the forum, held on the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU), considered the most pressing issues in the IT sphere, held thematic round tables and speech sessions. Also within the framework of the event, an e-sports championship, an Olympiad for programmers, and a startup school were held. All this time, the IT-expo exhibition was open on the FEFU campus. Among the forum participants are Microsoft Corporation, MTS, Rostelecom, EMC, RTRS, HP and others.

In the Primorsky Territory, according to the official website of the forum, an information society development strategy for the 2014-2020 years is being implemented. “Already today we are at the stage of transition of all types of public services into electronic format,” said Alexei Sukhov, vice-governor of Primorye, at the opening. 

The “Electronic Government” project, along with the “Safe City”, “Geoinformation Systems” and “Electronic School of the Future” projects, was presented by Rostelecom at the IT-EXPO 2014 exhibition, which was also held as part of the “Dalinfoc” forum. As the director of the Primorsky branch of OJSC Rostelecom Ruslan Tulaganov said, “The School of the Future” is a whole educational system in a tablet, developed jointly with Samsung and designed to work with students, their parents and teachers. In addition, Roslelecom opened the “Single E-services Zone” forum together with the MFC of Primorsky Krai. On this site, you can register on the portal "Gosuslugi" and use its services.

EMC, the world leader in information storage and use services, presented several devices for this purpose. As part of the Dalinfock Forum, the EMC company conducted a master class on almost all the technologies developed. A Microsoft representative gave an extensive talk on the future of cloud computing. The Far Eastern IT company LANIT DV told the forum participants about its achievements in the field of remote education. This project was created so that children from small schools in remote areas could receive a decent education at home. Among the developments within the project are electronic textbooks, interactive educational processes, a full-featured mobile laboratory complex with the 3D-visualization function and a school nano-laboratory for a chemistry classroom.

IT-technologies are increasingly becoming the basis for successful startups in Primorye, but screenings are hard. According to the organizer of the business accelerator project “Innovative Reactor” Andrei Kosolapov, over the past year only 60 from 20 applications from Vladivostok start-upers reached consideration, and only one team was able to make a deal. In the framework of Dalinfocom, a start-up competition was also held. His winner received 100 thousand rubles. on the development of a social network ULC.

High technology is becoming more important in everyday life. And this forum participants demonstrated on the example of Multifunctional Centers. In Primorye, there are eight multifunctional centers that provide 48 state and 18 municipal services, as well as the portal "State services". At the same time, the region is leading in Russia in terms of the number of personal offices registered at the Unified State Services Portal. Experts believe that by the end of the year the work of the centers will cover about 56% of the territory of Primorye due to the opening of another 10 of such centers, including two - in Vladivostok.

As Vladislav Miklushevsky, Governor of Primorsky Krai, said during the visit to the forum, the main goal of the event is "the practical application of those results of the activities of the companies that are represented here." "A lot of decisions are ready for application, some require further development, but in general, all of them must first of all work to improve the lives of our citizens," the organizers of the forum cite the head of the region.

The rector of FEFU, Sergey Ivanets, is sure that achievements in the IT sphere should solve not only the problems of Primorye, but also the global task of integrating Russia into the communication sphere of the Asia-Pacific Region. In his opinion, it is necessary to ensure the status of FEFU as a “source of analytical research and the creation of exceptional competences in the field of communications and telecommunications, socio-communicative technologies”, as well as to create a “sustainable staffing system in the APR at the expense of the best students of Primorsky Krai”.
