In the MAYOR urged Russia to create a “digital law” in the next five years

MOSCOW, August 13. /TASS/. “Digital law” in Russia there should be created a maximum in the next five years. About it in interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” said the Deputy Minister of economic development, Savva Shipov.

“In fact, we will need to create a new digital legislation. All of these tasks gradually need to decide not later than in the next five years. This is the maximum time that we have. Then catch up with [technology] is almost impossible”, – he noted.

The Ministry has divided the work on the creation of such a digital law of three stages. “The first is to eliminate the obvious barriers to the development of the digital environment”, – said the Deputy Minister.

At this stage it is planned to abandon the paper labour contracts and labour books, which hinder the development of labor mobility. The second stage is the big data and implementation of blockchain technology. “Who can collect the terms on which to obtain data from the state and more. A description of common approaches is the next challenge,” added Spikes. The last stage involves a global change in legislation and the introduction of the informational component.

Spikes said that now are actively developing technologies that are not regulated by Russian law. “For example, artificial intelligence, managing an unmanned vehicle. If a fault in the program have an accident, who’s going to answer? The personal data we have described, but the data that is generated during the use of your phone and tablet no. On which websites you visit, what are you looking for – these and other data may be aggregated and used even for commercial purposes,” he explained.

According to him, digital technology is evolving faster than society and state institutions. “You have to understand that without the creation of an enabling legal environment for the development of digital technologies, and to protect the rights of citizens, we get a parallel reality, which will affect people and their relationships,” he said.
