With the support of the Moscow Export Centre, subordinate to the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development of Moscow, representatives of 14 Moscow companies held about 300 business meetings with prospective foreign buyers. The total export potential of the negotiations is roughly estimated at over €27 million.
According to the Department’s press service, the augmented reality technologies presented by I-Exp have enjoyed success among visitors.
This «digital twin» of the city with a high level of detail of infrastructure objects has a wide range of applications. It allows you to combine all services in one application: from visiting attractions and ordering a taxi to tracking public transport, finding free parking and booking hotels. The engineering component of the technology makes it easier for the city’s authorities to plan repair work and quickly resolve emergency situations.
Visitors to the Made in Moscow booth were quite interested in the idChess chess game recognition platform. With a selfie stick, you can attach a smartphone with this app, which uses several ultra-precise neural networks at once, to a chess table. The application can recognise the game in real time, providing for remote training of a player.
In addition, the developers have created personal account features for coaches and organisers of competitions, as well as their own administrative system for holding tournaments and digitising chess games.
