Friendly banker wants to turn Russians into cyborgs
Herman Gref reveals secret to "staying relevant" in 2022
He is Russia’s friendliest banker, and coincidentally, also the CEO of Russia’s friendliest bank, Sber—which is not just a bank, but rather an entire “universe of services for human life.” ← that’s something a friendly banker who is definitely not a robot from outer space would say, yes?
Anyway, we’re diving into SberMetaphysics when we should really be discussing SberNews.
Gref attended a conference last week where he revealed the long-hidden secret to remaining SberRelevant:
Sberbank President Herman Gref named seven key technologies of the future: artificial intelligence, high-speed Internet (5G/6G), cloud computing, web 3.0, virtual and augmented reality, quantum computing and biotechnologies.
Speaking at the educational marathon of the Russian Society “Knowledge”, Gref noted that these technologies will be of the greatest importance for peoples’ lives in the future. “The most developed of them is cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI) is providing the maximum benefit to business and society today,” he said, giving a lecture on “Technology and People: How to Stay Relevant.”
Herman Gref also emphasized that the solutions used in the field of AI are constantly being improved. This applies to areas such as lending, healthcare, unmanned vehicles, and cybersecurity.
Imagine the possibilities. Soon we will have the privilege of instantly receiving an augmented-reality predatory loan from an algorithm in the 6G Cloud.
(Our friends at Katyusha.org have a superb writeup of Gref’s performance, and we encourage everyone to read it.)
At the end of Gref’s presentation, a young admirer asked him: “Which of your achievements do you consider the most significant?”
The Sber CEO replied: “I have not yet achieved my most significant achievement.”
Oh, happy days.
