Here is Who Builds Software Projects With Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Ukraine
In an era when our news feeds are overwhelmed by AI-related stories, it is crucial to correctly understand the concept – what exactly is AI, or Artificial Intelligence? In Hollywood movies, a favorite plot entails ‘the rise of the machines’ where AI gets out of control and machines aim to destroy life on earth. This is an unlikely scenario, and it is definitely not something we need to fear today.
Much more realistic is the scenario where artificial intelligence becomes a perfect assistant in all fields of our lives. The new technologies now becoming available have the potential to take over not just manual work, but also complicated calculations. They could potentially even replace humans in the workplace.
What is artificial intelligence (AI)?
Artificial intelligence refers to the ability of software to make calculations that are similar to the process of human thinking. To make the software “intelligent”, it is “taught” with a huge amount of real data.
What is machine learning (ML)?
Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence. It refers to the ability of software to learn by itself, using its own experience without being programmed.
What are the applications of artificial intelligence?
AI is already being used in different industries and its potential has literally no limits.
AI in healthcare
No, artificial intelligence won’t replace doctors in the near future. But it can be very helpful in the diagnosis of diseases – particularly those that are difficult to diagnose through traditional methods – because it makes decisions by analyzing hundreds of other clinical cases. The software can learn from its own experience processing the tons of data it deals with on a daily basis.
Artificial intelligence in retail
AI can help traditional retail to analyze sales data and predict possible demand for different products. As a result, companies can adjust their production to offer more products that clients really appreciate and produce fewer items that are not so popular.
Online stores will benefit from AI since the algorithms can offer buyers more items they may be interested in. The software analyzes customers’ purchases and the products they have viewed recently to predict their preferences. Such an approach can increase sales.
Machine learning in marketing
Marketing is constantly dealing with a large amount of data and specialized software can help to make the most of this data. Analyzing the results of marketing campaigns and automatically creating new and better ones based on the lessons learned – this is what makes AI extremely useful in making your brand more popular.
Artificial intelligence in HR management
It’s hard to overestimate the helpfulness of special software in human relations management. When it comes to recruiting, AI can take over screening and prior evaluation of the candidates, as well as scheduling of interviews. This saves a lot of work for an HR manager.
Best Ukrainian AI/ML development companies
Ukrainian developers continue to demonstrate extraordinary expertise in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning. That’s why we have prepared a list of companies you can approach to empower your business processes with an intelligent software assistant or to create an innovative product to broaden the horizons of what is considered possible.

This tool helps companies deliver information their customers are more likely to engage with.
Intellias is another Ukrainian software development company with proven expertise in artificial intelligence, especially natural language processing.
In cooperation with Alphary, Intellias has developed a vocabulary learning service that uses NLP. The application, available for both iOS and Android, was recognized by Oxford University Press and the technology has been licensed for worldwide distribution.
Intellias also developed an NLP based service for data processing and analysis. The tool builds semantic fingerprints from any unstructured textual information. In 2016 the service was named an IDC Innovator in the machine learning-based text analytics market.
Abto Software started their work on scientific projects as a partner of Lausanne University about 10 years ago. Since that time, the portfolio of the company has grown to include AI projects for government and healthcare, transportation and real-estate. Abto Software offers the full cycle of software development, from idea analysis to a ready product, including algorithm training and maintenance.
One of the AI-based applications developed by Abto Software is a license plate recognition service. This software uses machine learning algorithms to recognize the vehicle license number by scanning real-time videos from surveillance cameras. The information provided by this service is extremely helpful for police, security agencies, parking services, garages, etc.
The license plate recognition service developed by Abto Software teaches itself by analyzing the datasets provided by the client and real data that are processed by the tool. As a result, the more vehicles the service recognizes, the better and more exact its recognition ability becomes.
DevRain is another development company with a strong expertise in AI/ML. The company has experience in natural language processing, technology for human-computer interactions via written or spoken language. DevRain also develops AI chatbots for various platforms using tools like Microsoft Bot Framework, LUIS, wit.ai, api.ai, Chatfuel, Microsoft Cognitive Services, IBM Watson, Amazon Alexa etc.
