  • In its two decades in business, Yandex has been called the Russian Google, Amazon, and Spotify, mostly due to the Moscow-based tech giant’s expansive reach into every nook — including online search, music streaming, email, maps and navigation, video, and more.
  • Yandex is also in the early stages of developing a facial recognition system, similar to Uber’s, that identifies who is really behind the wheel.
  • Yandex has also been working on other automated safety technologies, including a speed control system that notifies drivers when they’re driving too fast.
