Iurii Milovanov, Director of AI and Data Sciences at SoftServe on maximising the potential of generative AI and the future it offers

It’s a great time to be an AI practitioner, admits Iurii Milovanov. The boom surrounding AI with natural language processing tools skyrocketing into the mainstream has had a knock-on effect in business. The AI race has never been fiercer. And although generative AI may be on the lips of every tech executive from London to Lahore, there’s still much we don’t yet know about its potential and how to derive maximum value from it today.

We delve into his journey as an AI practitioner, the work he’s doing with SoftServe clients to ensure success from strategy to execution, and what generative AI is currently and potentially capable of. With the popularity around natural language processors like ChatGPT, Google Bard, and Midjourney being so fervent today, this look into a thrilling present and compelling digital future is not to be missed.
