    I was kinda hoping that they would work with the Iranian alternative to Uber. Or work in conjunction with other parties in it (because many showed interest).

    Autonomous driving cars work great in summer time and if the roads divider lines are actually painted properly. As we know, Canada and Russia both suffer from poor roads, bad paint jobs of the dividers, and terrible snow storms (which in this case, makes autonomous cars completely useless as tested various times even in my city).

    BAH! I will not trust my life in the hands of such a machine as these cars. Especially since all the basic computers inside average car are garbage as is and usually prone to failures. God forbid these more complex sensors and computers....

    I wonder, does Uber also share the same issues with sexual molestation cases in Russia as they do everywhere else?

    These days the notion of Russian marketing "sucking bad" is very dubious. Marketing can be bought like any other service and
    in fact that is what is done in the precious west. Russia is blocked because of pure mafia tactics. Consider Kaspersky and Best Buy.
    If Kaspersky had back doors for the FSB (or whatever other paranoid fantasy Russian agency) then they could be explicitly identified
    in the binaries. I see morons claiming that only source code could reveal such "features". These morons have never heard of cracking
    apparently. A binary is like any piece of machinery and can be characterized in its functionality. Back doors are rather distinct
    structures and not some random string of assembler commands. If random crackers can beat the flexlm license manager daemon,
    then professionals can find security issues in Kaspersky. But no, they don't even try. It is all about Hillary and her claims being
    God's Truth (TM).

    The other issue for Russia in terms of market penetration abroad is NATO-based hate propaganda that paints Russians as
    incompetent neanderthals who live in mud huts. It is not an accident that Obama was bleating about Russians making nothing.
    He was doing his job to maintain the western racket. So various saps across the world buy US drivel and don't even consider
    Russian goods. That is not Russia's fault.

    But it is satisfying to see this:

    Driverless cars would be an ideal terrorist tool... just load up the explosives and send the car to your enemies house and boom.

    You could drive it half way across the country... get it to mount the footpath and kill a few pedestrians and then send it to the local hospital car park and boom level the place...

    Russians are just late to the memo as usual. iPhone X is really a POS as far as phones go, yet the demand is so high in Russia. Either they want to feel European still and have status symbols, or average person in Russia is clueless regarding the phone.

    Anyway, KVS, you are semi right. Russian marketing isn't that great though because we do not see them attempt to sell their stuff internationally. Recall Yotaphone? It barely got the attraction even though that phone was far more innovative than the iPhone. Does anyone here in the west recall seeing a Yotaphone advertisement? No.

    But you are definitely correct about NATO's mafia tactics. They are limiting Russia's ability to sell their products in the western markets simply because of this garbage mentality they spread. So that is why Russian products are being promoted more in countries like China, Syria, African countries, etc etc etc. Because those markets are not limited thanks to NATO.

    I will have to disagree about Yota phone. The western market is a racket and there was no point trying to break into it. Most of
    the cell phone sales in Canada are linked to the overpriced contracts with the cell phone service providers (Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc.).
    These companies, I am quite sure, would never offer the Yotaphone to their customers. Again, it is mafia-style market control.
    Only saps believe in some mystical free market where only the bestest ever products are sold (recall Beta vs VHS).

    The best approach for Russia is to sell to the un-west where most humans live and over time it will gain the reputation and the volume
    to crush the western market. Wasting time on the western racket "market" is not justified. The un-west acounts for most of the
    global GDP and is growing. Eventually the west will be relegated to the sub 15% of global GDP where it belongs.

    Well, yeah, I agree to the extent. I guess if they bribed the grouping of the media companies like Bell and Rogers, they could possibly get the phone into that market. I think selling Yotaphone majority shares to China wasn't such a bad idea in the end, as Rostec and the maker of the phone gets their money back and China does all the marketing for the phone in the nation.

    Personally, I think that is how it will go in the future. More and more joint venture companies and co-ownerships of companies between Russia and various other countries, in order to sell their products in the other nations respective markets. You will possibly see Russian companies buying large shares into Chinese companies, vice versa, etc etc etc. They do it so that some of that money can be brought back as well, it becomes more lucrative for them to market it in their respective countries. The mafia structure of the west will end up collapsing when many nations will not want to deal with their companies because they end up with little to no benefit behind the sale of iphones or some kind of Android phone in their respective markets. iPhone sales in Russia brings little to Russian economy and mostly to just apple itself.

    The west is expert in marketing.

    The Russians are getting better but it is clear they are not as good at lying yet.

    I'm sure they can improve.

    Just look at their videos of their military exercises... good quality optics.... UAVs for overhead views etc.

    Hard not to agree.   Marketing is not only adverts, it is about building company's perception... Thus all western politicians are doing negative  
    PR  wrt Kaspersky for 2 reasons:

    1) looks like Kaspersky becomes really competitive  on their market. (you know free trade and WTO and fair rules bwahahahaha)

    2) US is placing backdoors in everything they can to monitor both all-lies or henchmen (like eastern Europe) or to spy on Russia and China

    P.S. I would be surprised if Kaspersky did not help FSB or other Russian organization with backdoors. It is a matter of national security too. This does nto have ot be in code as explicit stuff. Vault 7 showed that othere are other ways to exploit OS.

    This is also function of funding. Russia cannot invest so much in anything comparing to West.  "Asymmetric marketing" must be found to me.

    The problem is that in Iran level of financing is pretty low so far. I hope this will change but not yet. IMHO by JV with Uber Yandex gains market share,increases company value and can explain share holders heavy funding of autonomous cars. Besides in Turkey or CIS is not that small market and Yandex can extend it with some time hopefully to Vietnam or Iran too.

    "The decision will be presented within the framework of the jubilee tenth international conference Business Information Security Summit (BIS Summit 2017), which will be held in Moscow on September 22, 2017," the InfoWatch representative said.
    GC InfoWatch was founded by
    Natalia Kaspersky in 2003. In 2007, InfoWatch became a completely independent organization and today unites such brands as InfoWatch, Kribrum, Attack Killer, EgoSecure, Appercut, Cezurity and Taiga.

    US calls for international regulation of Crypto-currency

    Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil country that prints green toilet paper without any limits wants to regulate others' hurricanes. Oh yes for prosperity and democracy right?



    By coincidence the new president incumbent Vladimir Putin

    MOSCOW, October 24. / TASS /. Before July 1, 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government, together with the Central Bank, in the implementation of the Digital Economy program, to ensure that changes to the legislation of the Russian Federation on regulating the public attraction of crypto-currencies and cash by placing tokens (ICOs) by analogy with the regulation of the primary offering of securities . The corresponding instruction was published on the official website of the Kremlin.
    The president also instructed to determine the status of digital technologies and corresponding concepts (in particular, "token", "crypto-currency", "smart contract", "digital mortgage") applied in the financial sphere, based on the obligation of the ruble as the only legal tender in the country.
    The head of state instructed the Central Bank and the government of the Russian Federation to establish requirements for the organization and implementation of production based on the principles of cryptography in the medium of distributed registries ("mining"), including the registration of economic entities carrying out such activities, and determining the procedure for its taxation.
    According to the text of the instruction, the President is waiting for proposals till December 20 on the creation of a special regulatory platform ("sandbox") on the basis of the Central Bank for approbation of innovative financial technologies, products and services, before establishing rules for regulating relations related to their application in the financial market.

    You do realize that the total number of usable computer clusters in Russia is much higher than in Poland, don't you?

    It would be rather idiotic if Russia had only three usable machines. I use such systems on a daily basis and one has to compete for
    resources with dozens and hundreds of other users and jobs sit in a queue for half the time. I would rather have a dedicated cluster all to
    myself (or my immediate colleagues) than the kitchen sink paradigm followed by these TOP 500 systems. Total Petaflops counts for much
    less in the real world since no user actually gets to see this total.

    Of course. Russia should still rank higher, though. Realistically, I think they should have atleast 20 computers in top 500. 30-40 would be great.

    (Also guys, don't shoot the messenger.)

    But yeah, that's a good point and exactly what I was thinking after posting that comment yesterday. Russia must have a lot of "supercomputers", many times more than Poland for sure, atleast a similar number per capita, they just don't make the list. That is probably the case with countries like South Korea, Spain, Brazil and India as well.

    South Korea in particular usually does were well in these kind of comparisons (patents, industrial robots, R&D spending...), but it somehow has only 5 computers on the list, which is really odd. Poland is the opposite, it usually doesn't rank particularly well, while of course being the number 2 in eastern Europe after Russia, but somehow it has as many supercomputers in top 500 as South Korea. That doesn't mean that Poland's overall technological capabilities are comparable to Korea, far from it. I wonder where Russia (and India) will be in 10 years time. I'd imagine and hope that they will improve quite a bit. India of course, considering its massive size, but Russia as well.

    And China is good news. The rise has been absolutely insane. They were nowhere to been seen in top 500 only 10-15 years ago. They finally overtook the US last year (IIRC) and now they are already the clear number 1. How is that "New American Century" going, Murica? I cri evrytiem. attack

    The FinTech Association is the first in the world to launch a blockchain platform for the financial market

    Подробнее на ТАСС:
    http://tass.ru/ekonomika/4593097
    http://fintechru.org


    The FinTech Association (AFT) is the first in the world to launch a blockchain-platform for the financial market - Masterchain. Currently, there are four pilot projects being tested in the Masterchain's Trusted Execution Environment. After testing and eliminating possible bugs, the network will actually begin its life. This should happen at the end of 2017, in 2018 it is planned to pilot selected cases with the connection of all member banks, and as early as 2019, products based on Masterchain's distributed register will be available for commercial use

    The first four steps to the transformation of the financial market
    As noted in the AFL, Masterchane contributes to the organization of a trusted environment between participants in the financial market. Banks, for example, in the performance of cross-border operations get rid of a large number of intermediaries and save on payments (this possibility may appear by 2019). Blocking technology allows you to build a simple and reliable chain of exchange of money and values ​​between two counterparties - the transaction is distributed and fixed in blocks that can not be changed.
    Platform users also have the opportunity to enter into smart contracts. They are executed automatically without the possibility of changing one of the parties. In this case, all actions within the network will soon have legal force. Unlike traditional contracts, smart contracts are deprived of the risks of ambiguous interpretations of conditions or unjust decisions of courts, which means that companies will save on lawyers. All information in the Master's Office will be stored on the nodes of its participants or, in the case of a confidential part of it, only those organizations that have the right to use it.
    Now the FinTech Association is testing projects jointly with Sberbank, VTB Bank, Alfa-Bank and Otkrytie Bank. As explained in the Association, credit institutions previously independently tried to develop services on the Ethereum platform, but decided to join forces to create a legally accessible environment for the financial market.

    The development of Sberbank is electronic bonds, the use of which will reduce the time for conducting operations for the storage, accounting and securitization of securities. AHML, Rosreestr, banks that issue mortgages, as well as depositories, can become participants in the project. Alfa-Bank is working to launch digital letters of credit. According to the director of architecture and strategy, Alfa-Bank's chief system architect Sergey Radul, the project on Masterchane platform will significantly reduce the terms of settlements between customers.
