PRO­MO­TIONAL MEET­ING AT THE RUS­SIAN CUL­TURAL CEN­TRE

Beijing (English) - - INFO -

Ameet­ing was re­cently held at the Rus­sian Cul­tural Cen­tre in Bei­jing co-hosted by the Em­bassy of the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion and the soft­ware pro­ducer Sel­don to pro­mote big data and ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI). The meet­ing was or­gan­ised to brief par­tic­i­pat­ing Chi­nese trade and com­merce as­so­ci­a­tions and com­pa­nies about Sel­don’s in­for­ma­tion prod­ucts. Sel­don pro­vides on­line data­bases of Rus­sian com­pa­nies, sup­ply- and-de­mand anal­y­sis and trade fore­casts for cus­tomers us­ing new tech­nol­ogy such as big data and AI.

Ilya Dim­itrov, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Sel­don, briefly in­tro­duced the com­pany’s ori­en­ta­tion and so­lu­tions for anal­y­sis and fi­nan­cial ser­vice mar­kets, mainly fo­cus­ing on one of the com­pany’s soft­ware prod­ucts for data anal­y­sis, mod­el­ling and fore­cast­ing. Ex­perts noted that the prod­uct’s main ad­van­tage is that the soft­ware also has a Chi­nese ver­sion. Sel­don’s pres­i­dent Mr. Div­it­rov de­tailed some of the com­pany’s pre­vi­ous suc­cesses and ser­vices in in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, mar­ket anal­y­sis and rel­e­vant fields.

Mel­nikova Olga, di­rec­tor of the Rus­sian Cul­tural Cen­tre, de­liv­ered a wel­come speech to all those in at­ten­dance. She ex­plained how the Bei­jing cen­tre serves as a plat­form for Rus­sian com­pa­nies to pro­mote their high­tech achieve­ments in China and col­lect nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion for them. The cen­tre has so far co­op­er­ated with both the Chi­nese and Rus­sian au­thor­i­ties, so­cial or­gan­i­sa­tions, sci­en­tific re­search in­sti­tutes, uni­ver­si­ties, in­no­va­tion fed­er­a­tions and youth fed­er­a­tions and also main­tains part­ner­ships with ma­jor Chi­nese and Rus­sian me­dia groups.

The cen­tre’s mis­sion is to in­tro­duce Rus­sian tra­di­tions and cul­ture to Chi­nese au­di­ences by hold­ing di­verse, in­ter­est­ing cul­tural events which im­prove mu­tual un­der­stand­ing be­tween the two coun­tries. Past cul­tural events have in­cluded cul­tural fes­ti­vals, in­ter­views with ma­jor Rus­sian cul­tural fig­ures, sem­i­nars, fo­rums, round­table meet­ings, book ex­hi­bi­tions and pro­mo­tional meet­ings. The cul­tural cen­tre also puts on fre­quent screen­ings of Rus­sian films and or­gan­ises con­certs, plays, ex­hi­bi­tions, cre­ative works, mas­ter classes and pro­mo­tional meet­ings. The cen­tre’s stage has been graced by a whole host of artis­tic forms and gen­res (in­clud­ing folk cus­toms, mu­sic and dance) per­formed by fa­mous artists and groups.
