A regional IT hub has opened in Oral
The grand opening of the regional IT hub, Jaiq-Hub, was attended by Bagdat Mussin, the Minister of Digital Development, Innovation, and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan, who visited the West Kazakhstan region, and Bakytzhan Narymbetov, the Deputy Akim of the region.
The regional branch of the international techno park, Astana Hub, aims to foster the development and promotion of IT projects in our region. Similar hubs are planned to be opened in each region. Currently, regional IT hubs are already operational in cities such as Taldykorgan, Taraz, Kyzylorda, Aktobe, and Semey. These hubs focus on the development of innovative projects, training and education in the IT field, and the creation of local IT communities that bring together aspiring startup founders, investors, mentors, and all those interested in advancing digital projects.
"We are involved in projects related to robotics and the training of teachers who teach this subject. Students from West Kazakhstan are winners in many national and international Olympiads. We also contribute to the development of drone racing in the region, which involves small-sized quadcopters racing on specially equipped tracks," said Omarbek Tashim, the regional manager of Jaiq-Hub.
Apart from the entertaining aspect, drone races also have a pragmatic component, driving enthusiasts of this sport to further technological advancements. Unmanned devices need to fly faster, be more user-friendly, and have better signal transmission to overcome interference and obstacles. It is quite possible that the next innovations in the world of drones will emerge from this field.
"Drone speeds reach 250-300 km/h, and they are controlled using special goggles. In Kazakhstan, this is a young sport, but it holds promise. Our task is to popularize this sport, enhance the skills of youth in the field of information and digital technologies, improve digital literacy, and shape the image of the region and the country in the global information space," noted Aslanbek Aminov, one of the founders of Aspan-Drone LLP, showcasing a small training class at the regional hub to the minister.
Minister Bagdat Mussin emphasized that the development of such IT technologies will be in demand not only in sports but also in areas such as emergency situations and various other spheres of human activity.
"To date, more than 1,000 services have been integrated into the eGov mobile application of the electronic government. On the instructions of the country's President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, projects such as the 'Digital Family Card' have been launched, digitizing information on 6.3 million Kazakhstani families based on 80 social parameters. This allows for the provision of many government services online without the need for certificates and documents. The 'Digital Notary' server operates successfully, enabling any citizen to process the necessary notarial document. Currently, there is an active process of digitization in healthcare, which will consolidate all medical information, including analyses, into a single project," noted Bagdat Mussin, the Minister of Digital Development, Innovation, and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
