Artificial Intelligence Journey, or AI Journey, the largest AI and data analysis forum in Eastern Europe, is a new platform to exchange updated information on AI and its use in Russia and abroad. The forum is held with support from Sberbank and other leading companies. AI Journey is a descendant of Sberbank Data Science Journey, or SDSJ, which had been held for three years, enjoyed success and proved that academics and businesses needed an even bigger venue to address Data Science and AI issues. The forum includes an international online AI competition, regional conferences in seven cities of Russia — Vladivostok, Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Ekaterinburg, Kazan, Kaliningrad, and St. Petersburg — and a large-scale AI Journey 2019 conference in Moscow.
