Anna Williams joins Andy and Dave as CNA’s Russia AI and Autonomy expert Sam Bendett returns to discuss the latest news and developments from Russia. Sam describes the progress that the Russian Ministry of Defense has made in implementing AI since its announcement of an AI Roadmap in March 2018, including some of the organizations involved and their advances. The group also discusses developments in the Russian civilian AI sector, as well as Russia’s intent to publish a civilian AI Roadmap by mid-year. Sam also describes some of the recent AI research and announcements (into which Andy and Dave note less visibility in English venues), and the group wraps up with a discussion on the latest developments in Russian military unmanned systems.
