The event is dedicated to the impact of artificial intelligence on society, government and business. Touching upon the topic of regulating artificial intelligence and the practice of its implementation, Putin noted that issues related to the protection of personal data and digital payments, countering manipulation of the preferences and actions of citizens are becoming more and more urgent.
“The state must take responsibility for storing critical information. It is no longer a question of ensuring the cybersecurity of the person himself, but also of his virtual counterpart – an avatar within the emerging metauniverses, ”the president emphasized.
Putin also noted that if earlier the metaverse, which is not something new, since this term is already 30 years old, was perceived as a person’s flight from reality, now it is better to use this concept for distance communication and learning.
