ISSAI attended ITU Regional Development Forum for CIS 2024

On March 26-27, Yerbol Absalyamov, deputy director of operations of the Institute of Smart Systems and Artificial Intelligence attended the ITU Regional Development Forum for CIS (RDF-CIS) 2024, which was held in Astana. 

On this global forum, Yerbol Absalyamov participated in a round table dedicated to promoting innovation and partnerships in the introduction of new technologies such as AI. He presented Institute’s NLP projects to the audience and also made several project demonstrations, including a digital prototype of Umay. ISSAI made its contribution to this forum by providing an initiative “ChatGPT for visually impaired and blind people”, which was highly accessed by ITU team and audience.

To note, in 2019 ISSAI was the first institute from Kazakhstan among academic organizations, which became a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). ITU is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies (ICTs) headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. The Organization is made up of a membership of 193 Member States and more than 1000 companies, universities, and international and regional organizations.

The ITU Regional Development Forum for CIS (RDF-CIS) provides an opportunity for the exchange of views between ITU Member States, Sector Members, partners, and other stakeholders. The forum was organized by the ITU and hosted by the Ministry of Digital Development, Innovation, and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan.  

ITU welcomes ISSAI initiatives and strongly recommended to attend its annual forum “AI for Good” and share ISSAI’s achievements with ITU members via ITU newsletters.
