AI with AI
Episode 2.33: For Your AIs Only
Russia expert Sam Bendett joins Andy and Dave for a discussion and update on Russia’s latest developments and efforts in AI and autonomy. The group discusses a 30 May meeting, in which Russian President Vladimir Putin outlined the national AI priorities; the Russian AI strategy, originally expected in June, is now expected in the June-to-October timeframe. They also discuss the growing AI infrastructure, and the opening of AI centers across the country, with a mindset similar to a “startup culture,” with Russian AI developers getting international recognition. The group touches on relations between Russia and China, particularly in the wake of the Huawei issues. The “Army-2019” military expo in June should also provide useful insights about the Russian military development and employment of AI and related capabilities.
