And, of course, this means that we will live in a brand new world. Question — how will we live in this world in the absolute transparency that is not yet ready”, — said Gref, speaking at the corporate University of the Bank.

Impossible to stop the invasion of personal information, it will inevitably happen, the world will be radically open. With this is to fight or to live, this question,” he added.

The key problem, besides education, is in the attraction of an increasing number of modern things such as artificial intelligence. A huge number of new technologies leads to a huge release of people, and today we do not see the answer to the question, what do we do with these people. We with this problem will face in the coming years,” predicted Gref.
