The director of Russia's Federal Agency for Ethnic Affairs, Igor Barinov, has said that a computer program for promptly responding to ethnic conflicts has been developed in Russia.
"We have managed to develop a software product that will use artificial intelligence to analyze the situation in interethnic relations. This system has already been created and we are now introducing it in the regions," Barinov told an interregional forum of the Russian National Front in Stavropol on Sunday.
However, this program is "not a cure-all", but the first results of its work are quite promising, he added.
"Thanks to this program, we will be able to detect a majority of conflicts at an early stage," he said.
The Russian southern city of Stavropol is hosting a January 24-25 forum of the Russian National Front. The results of its discussions will be summed up in a regional 'map of problems'.
