We are pleased to present the results of this exclusive cooperation at the largest international event in the field. WBAF 2018 is a very significant event for IQ300. I am sure that its guests and participants, representatives of different countries, will not only pay attention to the effect of the joint work of the academic community and the platform developers, but will also appreciate the new opportunities it provides”, – Alexander Tkachyov, the founder of IQ300 project, said.
