Interviewer: AI Conference Kyiv (AICK)
Respondent: Max Botvinev (M. B.)
AICK: Tell us about the company you represent. What does it focus on?
M. B.: The sponsor of my presentation at the conference was Intellectsoft. It is a service company developing software products related to both artificial intelligence and a pretty wide technology stack: IoT, backend and frontend solutions, and many other areas.
Intellectsoft is a high-class company in terms of know-how and maintenance.
AICK: You are a multi-discipline IT specialist working in particular with VR and AR solutions. How popular are they in Ukrainian business?
M. B.: Ukraine has a great demand for VR and AR technologies. All projects are diversified and quite interesting.
What I can mention in general is that virtual and augmented realities along with AI are applied in many projects. Such solutions are used in building activity, commerce, production, manufacturing, etc.
AICK: How can businesses avoid challenges when adopting artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and other technologies?
M. B.: Decision-makers in the business sector should be well-versed in innovative technologies. The development should not include any black boxes. Programmers have to speak in layman's terms. A company providing development services should keep the whole process clear. Everything should be readable and user-friendly. No hidden things are allowed.
At the same time, Product Owners should be experienced in this industry in order to reach correct decisions. They should realize where to direct the project in case of critical issues.
AICK: For example, an IT company asks you to elaborate an AI solution. How crucial is it for the company to accept product technical requirements?
M. B.: I try to provide customers with an additional service: assisting in the adoption of technical specifications. If one specifies necessary technical requirements for the product, it will be developed with a predicted outcome. As a result, we will obtain something satisfying the project goal and concept.
AICK: You spoke at AI Conference Kyiv. What are your impressions about the event?

Besides, such events reveal insider information, which is essential in decision making.
