2020 № 2 Artificial intelligence technologies in medicine and healthcare: Russia’s position on the global patent and publication landscape
An overview of public policy measures aimed at the development of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in the world and in Russia is presented. In order to evaluate the competitiveness of domestic developments created for the use of AI technologies in medicine and healthcare, a scientometric and patent analysis of the direction for the period 2010–2019 was performed. Based on the analysis of research fronts using the Essential science indicators methodology, the most promising research strategies have been identified. It is shown that on the global publishing landscape, Russia occupies the 27th position in the world by the number of publications devoted to the use of AI in healthcare: Russian researchers account for less than 1% of publications indexed in the Web of science. To enter the top 5 countries in terms of publication activity in this thematic cluster, Russia needs to increase the number of publications by more than 6 times. Of the 16 companies in whose publications the participation of Russian authors are indicated, 13 are foreign. In General, only 14% of publications in the thematic category “Computer science, artificial intelligence” were made in collaboration with the industrial sector. In the landscape formed by patent documents that protect technical solutions in the field of AI in medicine, Russia takes positions that do not confirm its intention to fight for promising markets for goods and services created on the basis of these technologies. In the field of medical AI developments, the number of Russian patents issued to non-residents of the country significantly exceeds the number of holders of domestic patents. Only 12 patents of Russian developers оn AI technologies for healthcare issued by foreign patent offices were found.
2016 № 1 Evaluating the perspectives for development of scientific journals, published in RUSSIAN SCIENCE CITATION INDEX on the Web of Science platform.
«Physicians and informational technologies» journal was included in the 652 best Russian scientific-periodical journals, composing the collection of Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI). This collection was presented at the end of 2015 on the Web of Science (WoS) platform. This article describes the objectives, methodology for selecting journals and perspectives of the project’s development. Particular attention is attributed to such vectors of development as possible switching listing of journals recognised by the Higher Attestation Commission to RSCI, possible usage of collection as a central one (nuclear) in Russian Index of Scientific Citation (by analogy of Web of Science Core Collection), methods of scientometric indicators of scientists and organisations, calculated only according to the RSCI file, to create models for targeted and contest financing of research and inventions in the Russian Federation.
2016 № 3 Big Data technology in medicine and healthcare in Russia and in the world
The article describes the path of scientific and technological development and commercial prospects of Big Data technologies in the field of healthcare in the world and Russia. The results of the patent-conjuncture analysis of trends in Big Data in medicine are represented. It showed a high potential for the formation of new markets and market niches and services in this area. The main trends of the evolution of technological solutions in the area of Big Data in the field of health were identified. An assessment of the global competitiveness of the Russian Big Data development in the field of medicine was given.
2015 № 3 Estimation of perspectives of t medical robotics developmenin Russia in the projection of the patent analysis.
There was analysed the publication and patent activity with regard to two actively developing areas in the field of medical robototronics: robots-exoskeletons for rehabilitation of people with muscoloskeletal disorders and robot-assisted surgery. There was identified discrepancy in the structure of global and national publication and patent flows. There were revealed disadvantages of foreign innovations on robot-assisted surgery, which create prerequisites for promoting import-substituting innovations of domestic engineers.
