R&D and patents

Computer vision, speech recognition, image, video and text generation — such innovations in the field of AI would be impossible without research and development (R&D).

Inventions patented by Russian research centers are successfully applied in both domestic and foreign AI projects.

Areas of activity:

  • Use of AI systems for patent research and in the patenting process
  • Creation of results of intellectual activity by AI systems


  • 138 patents were registered by domestic researchers in 2022
  • 905 results of intellectual activity in the field of AI were registered in Russia in 2022 — 35.3% of the total number of results of intellectual activity in IT
  • Over the last 10 years, 91% of Russian regions have filed patents for inventions in the field of AI (according to the data from the Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge of the National Research University Higher School of Economics)
  • In 2021, Russia ranked 16th in the number of AI inventions (according to the rankings of the World Intellectual Property Organization)
