International digital forum underway in Almaty

The sixth Digital Almaty 2024 International Forum is currently being held in Almaty. Over 200 experts, including prominent figures from the IT and business startup scenes, are engaging in discussions covering topics such as digital mining, public administration, cryptocurrency exchanges, education, and cybersecurity. Notably, on the forum’s first day, it was announced that the Kazakh-developed Sergek video surveillance system will now oversee road safety in Indonesia. The pilot project has already been launched in the city of Balikpapan. This exported intelligent transport system will focus on analysis, monitoring, transport forecasting, and addressing environmental issues.

“Our pilot project in Indonesia marks the second pilot initiative in Southeast Asia. The first took place in the Philippines, specifically in the city of Baguio. Currently, we are in discussions with cities across the Philippines regarding contract agreements. We will certainly provide updates in due course. In addition to Indonesia, we are also exploring opportunities in other   Southeast Asian countries, as well as in the Middle East and East Africa,” said Alyona Tkachenko, Director of Global Markets at a company.

There are also plans to hold an exhibition featuring major Kazakh subsoil users, technoparks, and technological companies that will share their experiences and information about projects in the IT ecosystem. This provides an opportunity for domestic companies to showcase their potential. According to the organizers, this year’s business program will center on digitally rethinking production, transforming core processes, addressing environmental issues, and implementing new technologies in extraction.
