Finalists of ‘Create Your Own Startup’ Contest Present Their Project at Russian Energy Week

On October 14, 2022, the Omela startup project team performed at the Youth Day of the Russian Energy Week. Philip Ilmukov, Project Team Manager, and a student of the FinU Faculty of Economics and Business  presented a startup project to a wide audience of specialists.

The Omela startup project team-members are working on a product that can predict natural disasters, detect their risks and patterns using neural network algorithms.

At the presentation, the above team once again raised the issue of Russia's natural resources’ value  and the importance of their protection. Apart from analyzing and predicting loss of forests from fires, other important goals and directions of the project development were noted: decarbonization, forecasting the loss of natural resources due to various factors, addressing the challenge of industry digitalization, analyzing and estimating the value of forests.
