Kazakhstan expands international cooperation in digital energy
The introduction of artificial intelligence, digitalization and process automation at Kazakhstan’s energy enterprises will enhance both efficiency and safety in production, according to experts. Advanced solutions will enable domestic companies to keep up with the times and boost profitability. A representative of one of the world’s largest energy technology companies is supplying specialized industrial equipment to Kazakhstan. There are plans to expand cooperation in the field of digital solutions in the energy sector. These intentions were revealed during the Digital Energy & AI Summit 2023. The forum aims to bring together leading energy companies and leaders in the field of IT technologies, providing an impetus to the country’s digital transformation.
“I have been following the discussions regarding cloud technologies, and the progress over the past year has been remarkable. Accordingly, if we talk about the CIS countries, then Kazakhstan appears to be leading in this aspect, and this is very good for us. The solution I’m talking about does not require extensive computing resources. Therefore, this proactive movement of Kazakhstan in the field of digital technologies and cloud technologies will certainly expedite project launches,” said Anton Melnik, Global Business Development Director of Industrial Enterprise AI in the UAE.
“We’ve outlined tentative projects for future cooperation. This includes the creation of training centers at our Kazakh universities, dedicated to preparing IT engineers for the industry. This is a very important task that will be approached proactively, given that automation, digitalization, platform transition, and the use of artificial intelligence represent the inevitable future of our industry. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare the workforce in advance,” said Bakytzhan Ilyas, Kazakh Vice Minister of Energy.
