Deputy Minister of Innovative Development Shahlo Turdikulova spoke at the international conference on "Artificial Intelligence - the Basis of Technological Development", which is taking place within the framework of the International Week of Innovative Ideas "InnoWeek.Uz-2021".
- In the modern world of the rapid development of science and information and communication technologies, the use of artificial intelligence in all areas in the developed countries of the world is constantly expanding. Science and the IT sphere developed in parallel and at some point were able to unite. Therefore, now artificial intelligence is also included in the field of scientific research. Perhaps an ordinary person does not always feel the achievements of science, its development, but, in fact, everyone feels it. The pandemic has proven it. Thanks to technology, scientists are able to detect new strains of coronavirus. The development of artificial intelligence is one of the priorities of the Ministry of Innovative Development, - said Shakhlo Turdikulova.
