Interactive Discussion ‘The Use of Artificial Intelligence in the Control and Supervisory Activities of Rosselkhoznadzor’

Passage, Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation stand
No need to wait for global digital surveillance to hit the food sector – it’s already here. Rosselkhoznadzor has been preparing to transition to a digital system for more than 10 years and now possesses all the unique tools necessary to begin: 11 information systems, analytical modules, and an AI model recognised by the OECD as an outstanding global example of innovative development. Rosselkhoznadzor is applying technical solutions to create a global information environment that makes the processes of production, turnover, and the verification of quality and safety of agricultural products absolutely transparent according to the ‘field to market’ principle recognised in the developed world. The agency has automated process for identifying unscrupulous business and high-complexity schemes aimed at defrauding consumers. The point at issue is the introduction of an online service that allows customers to choose a product on the basis of the status and reliability of its manufacturer. The only question that remains unresolved is how to ensure effective regulation of the AI systems without creating barriers to their introduction into public and government life.
