Deep science or deep tech is generically the term for modern technologies such as blockchain, AI, ML, AR, VR, robotics, big data, photonics, and more that are not focused on or cater to end-user services.
India ranks first among foreign countries in terms of the number of registrations for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Journey – an international artificial intelligence and data science conference which has been slated to be held online from December 3-5, 2020. Last year India had not attended the event. In cooperation with leading local and foreign technology companies, this event is organized by Sberbank of Russia.
This year, the record has been broken by the number of participants from outside Russia. Compared to 105 foreign guests from 34 countries in 2019, this year the event has attracted people from 58 countries.
