Ukraine House, a multi-format venue, opens in Davos, Switzerland during the 48th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF), operating January 22-26, 2018. The event will attract business and society leaders to a series of panel discussions and social events, one of which is Data Science panel discussion “Ensuring Human Power Over Data” featuring Oleksiy Skrypnyk, the co-founder of ELEKS.
Will there be a clash of AI and humans? How do these changes impact the requirements for tech talent and expertise? How do we ensure that businesses and governments have enough professional human capacity to deal with the data? The top business and technology minds from Ukraine will address these questions over a live discussion set on January 24.
Thanks to the solid mathematical background – a necessary ingredient for AI and Machine Learning expertise, Ukraine has a great potential to evolve into the next Data Science lab. There are 116,000 high-qualified IT-engineers working in Ukraine with ELEKS Data Science office being one of two biggest machine learning centres in Ukraine and the largest Data Science community in the country.
Ukraine House will take place alongside multiple sideline events of WEF’s Annual Meeting, discussing global economic and tech trends where Ukraine will be seamlessly intertwined in the global context. As a platform for networking, investment deals and technology partnerships, Ukraine House in Davos is a unique opportunity to showcase investment opportunities in Ukraine’s IT and Innovation sector to global business, technology and investment leaders.
The breadth of knowledge and understanding that ELEKS has within its walls allows us to leverage that expertise to make superior deliverables for our customers. When you work with ELEKS, you are working with the top 1% of the aptitude and engineering excellence of the whole country.
Right from the start, we really liked ELEKS’ commitment and engagement. They came to us with their best people to try to understand our context, our business idea, and developed the first prototype with us. They were very professional and very customer oriented. I think, without ELEKS it probably would not have been possible to have such a successful product in such a short period of time.
ELEKS has been involved in the development of a number of our consumer-facing websites and mobile applications that allow our customers to easily track their shipments, get the information they need as well as stay in touch with us. We’ve appreciated the level of ELEKS’ expertise, responsiveness and attention to details.
