AI development is much like research activities.
It all begins with the business idea. You create a hypothetic solution and design a plan to reach the goal. Next, you experiment, make mistakes and collect observations following the roadmap. Iteratively, you improve the approach and come up with the solution.
Typically, we go through the following phases:
We start with a free-of-charge preview talk. Knowing your needs and pains, we elicit the value AI can produce for your business and make rough time and budget estimates.
Results (on demand)
- Communication setup
To ensure everyone has a comprehensive understanding of the business objectives, assumptions, and limitations.
- List of AI solutions
That has the best chance to bring you quick wins and move your services/products to an entirely new level.
- Rough estimates
Of the project timeline and price
Time: 1-2 hours
The discovery phase is a thorough investigation of the business goals aligned with available data analysis and evaluation of existing open-source solutions.
Along with a number of AI approaches we evaluate the technical feasibility of the idea, create an implementation roadmap, detailed time and costs estimates, team composition, and technology stack.
Usually, the discovery phase ends when the development phase begins.
But we may find that you do not have enough data to start or it is not labeled correctly, or the business idea is not feasible. We help you collect (Data Preparation) and label the data (Data Labeling) correctly in these cases, or we encourage you to reformulate the goal.
