Siberia Science Charts Nation for Long-Term Cash Planning

Experts at a Siberian artificial intelligence institute are working on a massive world-first computer program to help the state place budget funds fairly around the vast regions
It's a project even Microsoft has not delivered, and is designed to replace several programs currently used to do the job. In Finland, similar attempts are recorded a failure, officials say.
