    Russian researchers discover a new and cheaper way of creating silicon carbide composites.

    Scientists of Novosibirsk State University (NSU) have developed a simpler and more economical technology for the production of carbido-silicon fibers used in composites for aviation and astronautics compared to Western analogues. The new method was proposed by employees of the Laboratory for the Synthesis of Functional Materials of the Faculty of Physics of NSU, the press service of the university reported.

    In aerospace engineering of the new generation, structural materials are used that combine low density and high strength characteristics at elevated operating temperatures. To achieve these properties, fibrous composite materials based on heat-resistant titanium alloys and ceramic matrices reinforced with silicon carbide fibers are used. A large range of reinforcing fibers is actively developed and manufactured on an industrial scale by a number of companies in the USA and the UK.

    "Foreign production methods require large time costs and monetary investments: the cost of the final product exceeds several thousand dollars per pound. In addition, foreign fibers are prohibited for export to Russia, which makes it difficult to create composites based on them. Our technology allows us to obtain high-quality carbido-silicon fiber for cosmonautics and aviation in a short time and at a lower cost," said Evgeny Galashov, project manager, employee of the Department of Applied Physics of the Faculty of Physics of NSU.

    The new approach is based on the chemical reaction of the formation of silicon carbide on the surface of a continuous carbon filament immersed in a molten silicon solution. Carbon fiber coils are immersed in a vacuum reactor, after which the carbon fiber filament is stretched through fusible eutectic solutions-melts with a high silicon content at a temperature of 350-450 ° C in an inert atmosphere.

    "Kaspersky Lab" considered a threat to US national security

    Kaspersky Lab and two Chinese companies listed as US security threats.

    Kaspersky Lab is included in the list of companies that may pose a threat to US national security. This is stated on Friday, March 25, in a statement from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

    It is noted that two more Chinese companies have also been added to the register.

    “The Federal Communications Commission and the National Security Bureau today listed products and services from three organizations — Kaspersky Lab JSC, China Telecom Americas, and China Mobile International USA — as communications equipment and services that have been identified as a national security risk in accordance with the requirements law <...> of 2019, ”the statement said, cited by Reuters.

    Earlier, on March 24, four Russian citizens were charged with involvement in large-scale cyber attacks against the global energy system in the period from 2012 to 2018. The US Department of Justice claims that Russian Evgeny Gladkikh contributed to damage to important infrastructure through his activities. He was charged with three counts. Three more defendants - Pavel Akulov, Mikhail Gavrilov and Marat Tyukov - as specified in the text of the American department, worked for the Russian government.

    On March 22, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia does not engage in banditry at the state level. So he commented on the March 21 statement by US President Joe Biden that the Russian Federation could respond with cyberattacks to Western sanctions. The head of the White House also advised American companies to strengthen cybersecurity.

    Earlier, on March 9, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that the United States recorded cyber attacks from Russia on Ukraine , but they did not have devastating consequences, because “perhaps the Ukrainian side has increased its resilience capabilities” in the cyber sphere.

    Did not have devastating consequences in the Ukraine because everything there is already broken so there was nothing left to break.

    This BS is a good warning to any Russian thinking they can run away to the west and be able to build a business and make good money on their talent... they will always be Russian and will be suspected of being a 5th columnest and any rival company or government official you might have annoyed can start a witch hunt to put you out of business or in jail.

    They are not your friend.

    Like that scene in the Simpsons where Homer finds his daughter and son fighting and when he stops them they say they are fighting over who loves him more... he is flattered and tells them to keep fighting, so they each accuse the other of loving their father more.

    In the US the democrats and republicans will fight over who hates Russians more... and who has the strongest sanctions against Russia.

    Rostec showed the capabilities of the country's first miniature OLED display

    Roselektronika Holding of Rostec State Corporation has demonstrated the capabilities of the first fully Russian microdisplay based on organic electroluminescent light-emitting diodes (OLED).

    The device, which is comparable in size to a ten-ruble coin, has a resolution of 1280x1024 pixels and a pixel pitch of 12 microns. Its scope of application includes virtual, augmented and mixed reality glasses, photo and video cameras, thermal imaging sights and thermal imagers.

    One of the essential conditions for the production of OLED microdisplays is strict compliance with the increased requirements for the technological process. In particular, it requires high precision processing of the upper stack of an ultra-large silicon integrated circuit and the application of a multi-layer OLED structure with a thickness of no more than 100 nm.

    There are five countries in the world, including Russia, that own the technology for creating such devices. The only company in our country that has the appropriate equipment and technology for manufacturing OLED structures and devices based on them is the Central Research Institute "Cyclone "of the Roselektronika holding.

    Russia keeps working to perfect the marriage between CAD and 3d printing to make structures with next generation physical properties.

    Perm Polytechnic University has developed a methodology that allows designing parts with a complex internal structure, including those consisting of several materials with different characteristics, for which the shape and internal structure are developed for specific production conditions. This was reported by the press service of the Perm National Research Polytechnic University.

    The researchers published the results of their work in the journal Russian Engineering Research. The development was implemented according to the state task of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia.

    "Using mathematical algorithms, parts and structures were optimized in such a way that the products were lighter, stronger and more reliable than analogues. The development can be used in the production of domestic aircraft and cars and in the field of heavy engineering," polytech experts believe.

    According to scientists, modern 3D printing capabilities allow you to create parts with the structure and properties of materials that change in the volume of the product. It is also possible to obtain structures with a cellular structure that will provide unique material properties. Most often, one metal is used for this. Perm Polytechnic University has proposed a methodology that will help create effective products simultaneously from several materials. It will automate the technological process of their design and production.

    "Two materials in the same design can have different elasticity, strength and weight. Therefore, it is important to create a rational structure that will effectively withstand the loads. To do this, scientists of Perm Polytechnic University used multimaterial topological optimization algorithms. The design methodology also made it possible to identify areas suitable for the formation of a cellular structure, while part of the part is filled with solid material, and the other part with cells," the vuZe said.

    Scientists have analyzed the mechanical behavior of cellular structures of various types and identified possible limitations in the manufacture of products using additive manufacturing methods. The researchers confirmed the effectiveness of the use of cells in complex structures. The results of the work will allow you to create materials with the required mechanical properties and optimize products for the necessary parameters.

    Russian Scientists Create All-Weather Solar Cells

    Researchers from the National University of Science and Technology “MISiS” (NUST MISIS) have adapted the technology of applying semiconductor layers of post-silicon photo-converters to industrial standards.
    The scientists behind this latest innovation believe that the technology will make the production of solar cells cheaper and easier, and capable of working in any weather, the university's press service reported.
    According to the authors of the research, the silicon crystals used today in the production of solar cells are difficult and costly to produce, and have serious operational limitations. Lately, scientists all over the world have been actively researching perovskite materials as an alternative to silicon. The researchers noted that today the efficiency of perovskite solar cells has already reached the efficiency of commercial silicon cells.

    Researchers at NUST MISIS have been developing perovskite-based solar cells and photo-detectors since 2015. The scientific team's work has yielded a technology that ensures high stability and luminescence of perovskite layers and is adapted to modern industrial application standards.

    “We have demonstrated the formation of perovskite layers by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) in a one-step process. The use of the standard method in combination with mechanochemical synthesis will scale it up to an industrial level. Furthermore, we have demonstrated and explained the high stability and luminescent properties of inorganic perovskites and we particularly distinguish CsPb2Br5 for its best optical properties at all technological stages”, said Arthur Ishteev, a researcher at NUST MISIS’ Laboratory of Advanced Solar Energy.

    The researchers emphasise that the CVD technique is now the industry standard for LED and solar-cell production. According to them, it is possible to incorporate perovskite technology into existing production lines without replacing the equipment fleet.
    The scientist added that perovskite solar cells and light-emitting diodes are now set to go into mass production and become widespread in industrial and consumer electronics. They have a major advantage in that they cost little to produce costs and can be manufactured in large batches.

    “Unlike silicon, perovskites provide generation in diffuse light and low light conditions. A perovskite solar cell works in all weathers and even indoors. This extends the range of its applications, for example for autonomous powering of stationary devices and wearable devices, such as watches and smartphones”, Ishteev said.
    At present, NUST MISIS has organised the full assembly cycle of perovskite solar cells. In laboratory conditions, solar cells are assembled in 5 hours - from glass to a finished product. The technology has been granted a patent and is ready for large-scale production and competition with silicon competitors. The developers are garnering investments and looking for industrial partners.

    The global objective of the researchers in the NUST MISIS’ Laboratory of Advanced Solar Energy is to bring perovskite devices to mass production. The researchers believe that affordable energy sources will improve the energy infrastructure in Russian and foreign markets.

    The expert explained the mass return to Russia of IT specialists who left earlier, by Tatyana Kosolapova for VZGLYAD. 17.05.2022.

    “They are sitting abroad, reading that an IT boom is expected in Russia, so they simply cannot continue to stay on the sidelines,” Alexander Malkevich, a member of the commission for the development of the information community, media and mass communications of the Civic Chamber of Russia, told the VZGLYAD newspaper, commenting on the relevant statement of the Ministry of Digital Development.

    The head of the Ministry of Digital Development Maksut Shadayev at the federal educational forum "New Horizons" said that about 80% of the Russian citizens who left the country after the start of the special operation in Ukraine, a significant part of which are IT specialists, returned to their homeland after May 15.

    “In my opinion, the return of Russian citizens to Russia is due to the fact that they understand that there are prospects in the country. Firstly, the package of decisions that has already been adopted by the government, and additional measures to support the industry, which are being discussed in the State Duma, in the government, cannot be ignored. Secondly, now there is a huge window of opportunity, the industry is restarting. We need our startups like air, we have a lot of our own regional, Russian solutions, which means we need specialists,” says Malkevich.

    He emphasizes that in connection with the real development of the industry in Russia there are prospects. Therefore, there can be no talk of any “chance to find oneself” in the West. Of course, there are few cases when our specialists find a place for themselves in foreign companies, but now even the largest corporations in the West are going through hard times. As an example, Malkevich cited the collapse of the shares of American companies Netflix and Big Tech. The interlocutor also recalled that the American service Twitter, which was never bought by entrepreneur Elon Musk, lost 20% of the share price only on information about fake accounts.

    “There are definitely more prospects in Russia, smart people understand this. They, and this is important, did not allow themselves offensive statements of an anti-Russian nature, they did not stain themselves with anything, ”the member of the OP notes, adding that abroad there is also no familiar comfort and affordable service that they received while living in Moscow or St. Petersburg.

    In addition, the expert does not exclude that a number of citizens simply started to run out of money, life abroad turned out to be not as bright as they imagined. “They are sitting abroad, reading that an IT boom is expected in Russia, so they simply cannot continue to stand aside. Now they have the opportunity not just to jump into the last car, but to arrive and comfortably accommodate in the second, third, fourth cars of this rather long train,” Malkevich concluded.

    Earlier, Secretary of the United Russia General Council Andrey Turchak proposed extending measures to support IT specialists to specialized teachers, since the Russian economy needs at least another 1 million specialists in the IT field. In addition, State Duma deputy Anton Gorelkin called for permission to receive a second higher education in IT for free.

    A lot of those people might have feared the introduction of a draft and/or had difficulties of payments. Some may even have worked for Western companies with operations in Russia and had to move or be laid off. With the guarantee of IT workers not being drafted, the low rate loans, and preferential tax regime for IT companies, plus huge gap to fill now that foreign companies are leaving the market, only idiots wouldn't come back I think. I bet a lot of them had difficulty even opening bank accounts outside Russia. Let alone getting their own housing and other things like that. Heck, if I was younger, I might have moved to Russia right now. There is an accelerated program for citizenship for foreigners with skills in Russia and this includes IT. And this is actual citizenship, not just work Visas like the US shit program where you need to be a slave attached to a certain corporation, and if you lose your job you get kicked out of the country.

    I think the software market isn't a problem in a large enough time horizon. The problem is the hardware market. Russia needs to first organize alternative import routes and make sure all the necessary data centers and services are moved inside Russia proper. The semiconductor and chip manufacturing industry needs to be beefed up. Substitution with alternative non Western products must be achieved as a long term goal. Russia should work on setting up a 300mm wafer fab with Chinese help even before its own tools become ready. And like I said the whole semiconductor industry needs to be mobilized and rationalized. The industry needs to cooperate. The time when Mikron and Angstrem-T worked in their own silos despite being located in the same city needs to stop. I should be able to move a chip design between fabs with zero extra effort.

    Hidden microelectronics: Russia produces megapixel photo arrays

    New Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia #2 Scale-600

    When they say that microelectronics are not produced in Russia, they often mean that we do not have giant factories like TSMC or Intel. But the fact is that the Russian market, especially the market of domestic microelectronics, where it is critical, it is very small. And we were not allowed to enter foreign markets, and they are not going to let us go in particular. I mean, they won't let us in en masse, although of course there is an export of microchips, the same Micron sells up to a third of its products for export.

    By the way, distractingly, Micron exports chips, and wafers. Then they are already cut, packaged, labeled abroad, and you will not know now that the chip is made in Russia, for example, it will be written Made in Malaysia on it.

    But in general, there are a number of small production facilities in Russia that are organized on the basis of various research institutes, and we do not know about them at all. And they produce products for narrow areas, such as space. It is clear that it costs like a wing from an airplane, but space in general is not cheap, and the cost of a photosensitive matrix simply dissolves in the price of a weather satellite. But the main thing is that they are made here. Here is an example:


    Scientists of the Institute of Physics and Technology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences create megapixel infrared arrays, a component base for radiophoton communication systems, and the most important components of navigation systems ― semiconductor lasers for miniature quantum frequency standards.

    "One of the achievements of the Institute is the creation of a 2000-by-2000-element megapixel photosensitive matrix. This work was carried out in the interests of the state corporation “Roscosmos”. The matrix is sensitive in the infrared range and is designed for environmental monitoring of the Earth's surface, fire detection, geological exploration, and deep space observations, " said Alexander Milekhin, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Deputy Director for Research at the Institute of Physics and Technology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

    And it is not quite the usual technology that is used here:

    The Institute of Physics and Technology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences has extensive experience in developing and using the method of molecular beam epitaxy, which makes it possible to grow thin semiconductor films, layer by layer, with constant thickness control, up to nanometers. The technology of growing semiconductor structures based on telluride-cadmium-mercury is a flagship for the Institute. In this area, IFP is a leader in Russia.

    In general, as I said, there are several similar production facilities in Russia. Some of them are classified. And I would not be surprised if Russia has production facilities of 28nm and lower, even if they are not mass-produced, not intended for large series, but they have enough capacity for the military-industrial complex and space.

    The MIC has no need for 28nm so far. The 28nm would be for civilian government applications like desktops or servers.

    The Chinese have a viable tool chain for everything in 28nm except the lithography tools.
    Their lithography tools are still stuck at 65nm with so called dry ArF light source.

    New Technologies and Innovation Development in Russia #2 Empty Russian battery technology

    Post  limb Wed May 25, 2022 8:35 pm

    This is a thread for all types of russian battery tech, including li-ion, solid state, good old lead acid, etc.

    According to the Vremya Vpered channel, which kvs and BigGazza, share a lot, russia actually does have lithium processing facilities(the problem is importing raw lithium), so this gives the opportunities fr russians to domestically produce li-ion batteries.

    AFAIK, for better or worse, china is the leader in long lasting reliable Li-ion battery tech, which has translated into their domination of the personal quadcopter drone market.

    Does russia have any contracts or mutual R&D programs with china for producing such batteries?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REoZcCQebhE&t=509s

    I hope this thread breeds fruitful discussion and uncovers intreresting facts.

    The general viewpoint in Russia seems to be they aren't interested in long term use of China as its source for everything. The theories pushed regarding that is supplemented by the fact ministry of industry and trade is funding development of lithography machines for older and newer tech.

    I think this is exacerbated by your previous post of that video where even the open source community is attacking Russia too.

    China should only be a stop gap and cooperation in developing said tech.  Because as most Russians seem to figure is "how long till China decides to pull sanction stunts?".  I don't believe they will but Russians are cynical people for a reason.

    I'm interested to see what rosatom has up their sleeves.

    Well, it is a bad idea. I do not mean having a plan B. That is a good idea. But not using Chinese tools is a bad idea. It will mean the industry will be delayed more than should be necessary. Fact is they could make a pilot 65/45nm fab with 300mm wafers right now with the Chinese tools. And once the Chinese 28nm lithography with immersion ArF becomes available they could change the lithography tools so it can do 28nm. By the time the Russian KrF tools come out to do 90nm/65nm, the Chinese might be doing 7nm or 5nm with their own tools.

    Once China gets its own native production line operational Russia should license the manufacturing processes and move their designs to be producible in that line. Then they should make their own small scale replica of it in Russia. Russia should start buying the Chinese equipment as soon as possible. They could get the 300mm production line out of Crocus and add Chinese tools to it to convert it to full production.

    Russia needs to move their chip designs from TSMC 28nm process to this said licensed Chinese 28nm process. It was a mistake to depend on TSMC in the first place, but that is water under the bridge now. They need to do a review of all chip designs and figure out which they need and can make at Mikron or Angstrem-T at 90nm, and which they could make with the Chinese 28nm process and port those over.

It will mean the industry will be delayed more than should be necessary. Fact is they could make a pilot 65/45nm fab with 300mm wafers right now with the Chinese tools. And once the Chinese 28nm lithography with immersion ArF becomes available they could change the lithography tools so it can do 28nm. By the time the Russian KrF tools come out to do 90nm/65nm, the Chinese might be doing 7nm or 5nm with their own tools.

    Once China gets its own native production line operational Russia should license the manufacturing processes and move their designs to be producible in that line. Then they should make their own small scale replica of it in Russia. Russia should start buying the Chinese equipment as soon as possible. They could get the 300mm production line out of Crocus and add Chinese tools to it to convert it to full production.

    Russia needs to move their chip designs from TSMC 28nm process to this said licensed Chinese 28nm process. It was a mistake to depend on TSMC in the first place, but that is water under the bridge now. They need to do a review of all chip designs and figure out which they need and can make at Mikron or Angstrem-T at 90nm, and which they could make with the Chinese 28nm process and port those over.

    What I am saying isn't that they wont use China for their products - but that they will only use them as a mixture of temporary for lower nm and that later on will only suppliment what they need with Chinese facilities.

    Plan B is Plan A.  Plan B is using China temporarily.

    Also, they may skip 28nm and go for lower anyway when they start producing their own equipment again.  So saying by time they get to so and so china will be at so and so isn't reality but assumptions.

    For most part, 65nm at Mikron is enough for more advanced chips and for everything else at least military and government needs, the 90nm is sufficient.  Space chips still at 200nm or 180nm.

    Edit: and while Limb is a moron to multiple degrees, his question is legit.  Chinese companies besides ones sanctioned themselves may not be interested in working with Russia in producing chips anyway since most of those companies rely on Western money and business.  Already many of them have sanctioned (not quite sanctioned but refused) Russia so there is a potential that Russian market isn't worth it for those companies.  Which brings me to the point that there isn't a need to replace their own with China's because there may not be anything in China worth using besides whatever Huawei uses.

    China can't be expected to be a 100% reliable partner in all areas simply because some of their companies make rather more money in the west than they make in Russia so asking them to give up their main market just to help Russia is unreasonable and unfair.

    Huawei is being banned from western markets so they can cooperate with Russia and working together they can create products to sell to Russia and China and the rest of the world... which is a huge market. But a Chinese company not banned from the west would be risking a lot to partner up with Russia.

    Russia has a lot of talent and skill and might be able to develop new ways of making chips and electronics that works out faster and cheaper than the current methods being used... it would not hurt to try.

    Creating their own technology for working on a very tiny scale could lead to new breakthroughs... besides using smaller and smaller designs has a physical limit so an alternative direction for improvements needs to be found anyway... perhaps 128 or 256 bit computer chip designs, or 3D chip designs etc etc... or massively interlinked designs with fibre optics sending entire pages of information in both directions at once instead of a copper wire sending a single electrical pulse in one direction at a time.

    This is not a bad thing... this is an opportunity for progress... the west dominates so it wont be interested in rendering all they have obsolete, but Russia is a blank page that can do as they please.

    Needless to say if they were going to start designing a new Sniper Rifle you would not start with a matchlock musket design and start to improve things...

    VTB bought 100,000 licenses of the Russian analogue of Microsoft Office for 1.2 billion rubles, 14.06.2022.

    This is the largest deal for the purchase of domestic software in Russia.

    The fact that VTB is replacing Microsoft Office with the domestic software Myofis, Vedomosti was told by a source familiar with the negotiations between the bank and the software developer, the IT company Myofis. The deal amounted to about 1.2 billion rubles, the source close to VTB knows. Representatives of the bank and the IT company also confirmed the information about the contract, refusing to comment on its amount.

    "Myoffice" is a software product of domestic development. Includes tools and applications for word processing, spreadsheets and mail, presentations, and cloud storage.

    We are talking about the purchase of 100,000 licenses of the Myoffice Professional package, they were purchased as a replacement for Microsoft software, says Elena Nepochatova, Commercial Director of Myoffice. According to her, negotiations on the deal have been going on since the beginning of 2021. The package acquired by VTB includes programs for working with documents, spreadsheets, presentations, etc., it is possible to work both in the cloud and from specific devices.

    "Kaspersky Lab" considered a threat to US national security

    With Kaspersky labs being frozen out of the western markets, perhaps they should reorient to expand their computer security business to not just making anti virus software but also work with Russian companies developing operating systems and also western software replacements like Microsoft Office replacements to improve ther security and stability and robustness when it come to foreign attack or interference.

    Perhaps the new OS and software could come in versions checked and endorsed by Kaspersky, or even a Kaspersky version of the software that they have modified to make more secure and also have contracts from users where the Kaspersky experts continually try to hack their systems and then rewrite their software to close loopholes and gaps in their defence, with upgrades and improvements going to all users of the software in regular updates and patches...

    Together with using more secure hardware and chips with no backdoors built in, that would make the work for western intel agencies much harder... of course they tend to spend more time getting dirt on their allies so they can control them better when they need to.

    Russia is deploying its domestic large turbines for power generation. The Russian media is infested with 5th column trash
    as was the case back in the early 1900s. They claimed the turbine project (GTD-110M) failed because there was a failure during
    the testing phase. This is so retarded that it lowers one's IQ just by listening to it. WTF do these swine think that
    testing is for?

    http://www.uec-saturn.ru/?sat=70&slang=1

    I think Russia needs an anti-chicken-little law. Another term for it is anti-fake-news law.

    Almaz-Anetei is now in the prototype stage of testing a new drone with VR or first person control ability similar to the DJI FPV.
    No information is available but it is supposed enter production 2023. It includes encrypted control and encrypted video return
    as well as shielding against EW measures. It is a military project so it is not going to dick around. It is not a clone of the FPV.

    Russia has also developed a phantom drone swarm EW tech to confuse enemy forces.

    "Rutube is not yet comparable to YouTube”
    Head of Rutube Alexander Moiseev about new opportunities and limitations. 08.19.2022.

    Most Russian Internet services benefited in one way or another from the blocking of international competitors, the scale of which intensified after the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine, and their own decisions to restrict work in the Russian Federation. Rutube, owned by Gazprom Media Holding, is one of the few domestic resources coexisting with the still most popular YouTube video hosting from Google. Rutube CEO Alexander Moiseev spoke about the difference in goals from YouTube, moderation and “zeroing” the history of the service.

    — Rutube announced the relaunch in April, the day after a letter from the Ministry of Education and Science about the need to transfer videos from YouTube appeared in the public field. By that time, the topic of blocking YouTube in Russia had already been discussed for a month, which in the end did not happen. Then there was a lot of talk about Russian counterparts and replacements for Western services. How did the situation affect the image and audience of Rutube?

    - I think it should be noted first of all that the reboot of Rutube and the events around YouTube are two parallel, unrelated processes. Rumors about YouTube have different bases in different cases, and I think that monetization shutdown in Russia in general caused a stir. And when people hear that the main site in terms of traffic will be blocked, they, of course, try to switch to others.

    Does blocking YouTube in some form or removing monetization help Rutube traffic? The answer is very ambiguous. Those who watch YouTube in Russia overnight have “premium” accounts, because if there is no monetization for authors, then there are no ads for viewers.

    The competition has become more difficult: we want to advertise so that bloggers can earn money, but there are no ads on YouTube.

    Of course, at this moment YouTube is convenient for the viewer.

    - Rutube plans to introduce a subscription without ads and with revenue sharing with authors?

    - It will be in the future, but now we are solving more pressing issues and tasks. It must be understood that YouTube is an international platform with a multibillion-dollar user base, which systematically provides other technological advantages than Rutube. They work with a different array of data and with a different number of users, therefore, different advertising mechanics operate. We need to compete on the basis that we can be much more local. We can be closer to the user and offer benefits that no other transnational fund that does not understand local specifics will give.

    We want to turn Rutube into a platform like a social elevator. Let's say you're a creative person, come, post a video, start earning. Watch more, earn more. And since the site is part of a large media holding, there is an opportunity for further promotion. For example, you will be provided with production for filming a project, and you can also get into the film - such a platform as a starting springboard has more prospects. Local, of course.

    - But it turns out that the needs of viewers who want to watch content from other cultures and other countries, or those who want to upload videos with an international audience in mind, remain overboard.

    — Any site, any application or solution always has a certain focus. In the case of YouTube, the initial focus was on the English-speaking audience. The focus of Rutube is the Russian-speaking audience. And I think that, from her point of view, we will overcome the amount of content of other platforms very soon. There are many people in the world who speak Russian, and this is actually a large community that also wants to offer interesting content. When we achieve perfection in this, then, of course, we will go further.

    - And if you do not consider the possibility of promotion within the holding? Let's say I'm a company or institution, I have an audience, a need to upload videos, and a desire to be watched. If you look at Rutube as a classic video hosting, what can it offer me that I won’t find on YouTube or VK Video?

    - Everything is very fast on Rutube: in two clicks we got a channel and posted a video on it. Everything is clear, everything is available, the video works stably, we have reduced the moderation time to a few minutes. But you need to understand that videos that have been assigned certain markers during the auto-moderation process are subject to manual moderation.

    - Can you give examples?

    - Certain things are prohibited by the law of the Russian Federation. We have described everything that is possible and what is not, and compliance is very easy to check. But there are specific cases - I even conducted an experiment to test them. For example, if you upload a video of fireworks, the entire audio track will consist of explosions, pops, whatever. If the moderator watches live, he will understand that there are fireworks on the video and there is nothing forbidden in them. And for machine learning, it is still difficult to understand the difference.

    Are certain words included in the system?

    “There are a lot of things there. The algorithm is constantly changing, but we also have a large group of moderators. In February-March, there was a problem associated with the influx of bloggers whose video archives were removed by YouTube or who were afraid of their removal. The problem was mainly not that there were a lot of users - here, on the contrary, the more the better - but that there were a lot of videos in the queue for moderation.

    It is important to understand that among all the videos that get moderated, there is a certain percentage of those that do not pass it, that is, they actually violate the laws of the Russian Federation.

    Every day, 7-10% of uploaded videos fail moderation, and it's not just about copyright infringement.

    - On YouTube, people are free, only under their own responsibility, to publish content that you expressly prohibit. And their videos are popular, “following” beyond the site: for example, I can hear that a new interview with Yuri Dud (announced in the Russian Federation as a foreign agent) has come out without even going to YouTube. Do you see this as a problem for Rutube's growth?

    - In the short term, you can probably “take off” faster on content that, to put it mildly, is protest, but in practice is not entirely reliable at all.

    But if we look at the longer term, what really matters is being honest with your audience and giving them credible content.

    The legislation of the Russian Federation was invented not because people need to do something. There are rules. We are a Russian company, we live in Russia, we like everything. We want and will comply with the requirements of the law. Will it ever limit us? I will ask another question: if you drive through the city at a speed of 180 km / h, will you arrive home faster than if you do not violate the rules and signs? Faster. It's just not a fact that you'll get there.

    — Usually, duplication of content from a more popular platform to a less popular one creates issues for the latter that need to be addressed. For example, Instagram (Meta's activity on the work of the social network is declared extremist in Russia and banned) announced that it would downgrade videos re-uploaded from TikTok in the search results. Does Rutube intend to downgrade YouTube videos in a similar way or not to promote them?

    We don't underestimate or remove anything. The user's library is his library, and he is free to do what he wants with it. If you feel more comfortable on Rutube, please transfer the video. Why should I underestimate you somehow? But if you play ads for your neighbors in big letters on our site, we will probably ask you to pay for it somehow.

    - Do you plan to introduce multi-channel partner networks or tools for managing multiple accounts on Rutube?

    - Sub-accounting will appear, I think, before the end of the year. In September there will be a big update regarding the user's personal account and statistics. But subaccounting will appear not in the September update package, but a little later.

    - Is it planned to launch an analogue of Content ID for monetization in favor of the copyright holder? Will there be equal rights for Russian and foreign copyright holders?

    - The roadmap for the next year does not imply the appearance of such a function.

    Will there be a public counter of views and likes?

    - Will be. More precisely, it already is, but we turned it off on purpose. Here is a story: remember, there was LiveJournal? He is still there, but faded into the background in terms of numbers. There were thousands of bloggers in LiveJournal, and the coolest one, whose name I don’t remember now, had 63 thousand subscribers. And now we are competing, who has a million views, and who has dozens. We are accustomed to seeing these huge numbers.

    Rutube is not yet comparable to YouTube. "Incomparable" is the wrong word: it's smaller. Not so much less that we can talk about dramatic numbers, but in terms of monetization of successful channels - four times. And there is a chance to frighten off the user, because viewers have formed a habit on YouTube: they come, scroll through the video, find something that has gained millions of views, and decide to watch it. Let's make it so that the determining factor is not a large number of video views, but the quality of the content.

    odd and interesting http://wvvw.levitation.info/ just random info from paralay forum


    STABILIZED LEVITATION
    SYSTEM FOR HEAVY NON-MAGNETIC OBJECTS
    Russia, Novosibirsk, 2013 Inventor: Shepel Denis
    Certificate of registration of the object of intellectual property No. 3248 of March 3, 2014.


    FEATURES OF THE SYSTEM
    The prototype device of the system of stabilized levitation of heavy non-magnetic objects is created to publicly demonstrate the successful solution of the problems of stabilization of the levitating object.

    Levitation

    The device independently lifts a heavy object (artificial stones), weighing more than 1 kg., Confidently stabilizes it in space without perturbation of the air and smoothly lowers it, demonstrating controlled levitation.



    The object is not a magnet and does not contain magnets, contains no iron, no electronics, no mechanically movable parts. The air under the object is calm, for the demonstration of which it is possible to let off smoke, which will be serenely spread under a kilogram object, floating unsupported in space. For this system, the environment is practically not important. Levitation is possible in any gas, in an airless space and even through an obstacle - water, soil or walls.




    WHAT'S NEW
    The method of stabilizing the Shepel system opens up great prospects in the field of controlled levitation of objects and devices over an open surface. Now it has become possible to create a transport that truly levitates above the surface.

    There is no significant interaction with organic tissues, i.e. levitation roads can be sown with grass. Levitation transport will run on renewable energy (electricity), and this will make our world cleaner. With an increase in the share of levitation transport, the burning of fossil fuels will decrease and the planet's atmosphere will begin to clear. All this has already become possible in the near future.




    WHAT'S NEXT?
    In the near future, levitation paths in recreation parks nearby or combined with bicycle ones will become possible, there will be attractions where children can soar on flying boards, levitation transport and universal roads for wheeled and levitation machines will appear. The world will begin to get used to what was considered impossible for many centuries.

    And the inventor begins active work on unsupported levitation and the creation of the first prototype that allows a sealed object to move in open space without disturbing the environment and emitting reactive mass.
