Veronika Belousova, the leading research fellow of ISSEK HSE, took part organizing a joint research study between the HSE and the CFA Institute, which indicated that artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data technologies have not yet become widespread in investments.
The HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge analysed the KIBS firms’ demand for digital technologies and the impact of their adoption on business activity. Top management survey results have shown that about 50% of the companies use big data analysis tools, and only 5.4% implement Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies. About 80% of KIBS firms applied different types of digital tools to optimise business process-es and increase competitiveness even before their massive development during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge of the Higher School of Economics (ISSEK HSE) presents 2019 survey results regarding the usage of remote work and online training practices across KIBS companies in Russia. The survey results indicate that Russian KIBS companies have been actively adopting remote work practices, online training and cooperation with customers even before the worsening of the epidemiological situation.
