Innovations should become a point of growth of Turkey-Russia relations

logo_whiteTurkey and Russia have an enormous potential for deepening cooperation in the smart mining, as well as other innovation-driven and high-tech sectors, for example implementing joint projects in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), says report of Finnish-Russian AI and IIoT solutions firm ZYFRA.

“Innovations should become a point of growth of Russia-Turkey relations. We see significant potential for introduction AI and IIOT in such industries as mining, metallurgy, chemical industry and the oil and gas sector”, said Igor Bogachev, CEO of ZYFRA.

VIST Group, a subsidiary of ZYFRA, will participate on April 16-19, 2019 in 26th International Mining Congress and Exhibition of Turkey in Antalya and present its solutions for smart mining, including a complex of digital technologies for controlling the production processes of open-pit mining operations on the basis of robotic loading and transporting systems.

“AI-driven mining machines could help to avoid thousands of fatal mining accidents, which account formore than 10% of workplace accidents in Turkey annually. In an end-to-end smart mining, you remove all personnel from autonomous operating zone and leave robots to themselves. If you need a person or vehicle in there, you equip them with trackers, and every autonomous truck watches them carefully. This could reduce fatal cases down to zero,” Igor Bogachevsaid.

Turkey will become the Partner Country of the 10th International Industrial Trade Fair INNOPROM, which will be held on July 8-11, 2019 in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The main theme of the exhibition is “Digital Manufacturing: Integrated Solutions”.

“Russia is building Turkey’s first nuclear plant, Akkuyu. The construction of TurkStream is proceeding as scheduled. Such projects are expected to give a major boost to the artificial intelligence (AI) industries in both countries,” Igor Bogachev added.
