William Saito on Why Russia Needs To Encourage Innovation
William Saito argues that the future of Russia lies in the use of technology. William Saito is a leading figure in technology and cybersecurity. He has consulted with the government of Japan and worked closely with firms such as Apple and Twitter. Such firms appreciated his input on the world of technology. It is for this reason that this technology mind insists on the importance of technology to Russia. Russia has all the resources, and the skills need to achieve this. All that is required is for the nation to think creatively. According to him, countries like America the and Japan have made names in the technology sector since they are in a position to identify the various challenges facing human beings and come up with solutions to them. Russia is known for cybersecurity. It is the home country of Kaspersky. Although the software received terrible reception in the US, it showed that Russia has what it takes to innovate good products for cybersecurity. As such, the nation can expand on this to make its name in the global technology arena.

Russia is a nation which is endowed with a lot of natural gas and oil. All its technological efforts should be directed towards making this more efficient. Russia is capable of achieving this. All eyes are focused on this giant which made headlines at the beginning of the last century. Although the US tends to ignore this owing to its strained relations dating back to the cold war period, it is doing so at its own risk. Russia is a country to watch in the next area of technological advancements. However, this nation should not allow politics to interfere with this process. William Saito notes that Russia can come up with using technology in the area of the green economy by encouraging its innovators. The authorities should stop harassing scientists who are doing a credible job in this area. William Saito states that advances in technology are brought about by competition. The Russian government needs to allow this competition to take place on its soil. The political class needs not to feel threatened. When this class uses a lot of force on scientists, the country would be left behind by giants such as America and Japan.
