Digital Transformation: How Technologies Transform the Economy and the Social Sphere

Digital Transformation: How Technologies Transform the Economy and the Social Sphere
The dazzling evolution of digital technologies is changing the face of the economy and the social sphere. Some Russian sectors — such as the manufacturing industry and financial services — are well-aligned with the global trend, while some others are lagging behind, thereby creating risks for the country's economy. A team of HSE ISSEK researchers examined current approaches to measuring digital transformation and focused specifically on its uptake by a few key sectors of the Russian economy and services, benchmarking them against the global situation. The study findings were presented in the report 'Digital Transformation of Industries: Starting Conditions and Priorities' at the XXII April International Academic Conference co-organised by HSE University and Sberbank.

First Simultaneous Observation of a Fast Radio Burst in Radio and Gamma Bands

First Simultaneous Observation of a Fast Radio Burst in Radio and Gamma Bands
A team of scientists from the Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute, HSE University, Sternberg Astronomical Institute (SAI) and NASA announced the first simultaneous observation of a fast radio burst from a galactic object and its 'equivalent' in the X-ray range. The source direction of the burst coincides with the position of the active magnetar SGR 1935+2154, and analysis of the signal in the two energy bands will improve our understanding of the nature of fast radio burst phenomena. The results are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.
