My article @ European AI Alliance: The War in Ukraine and AI Regulation: Some Controversial Takeaways

Originally the  article  was published @   European AI Alliance

Since the beginning of the war, I have often been asked what The Expert Committee on Artificial Intelligence is doing now.

Are we still doing policy-making?

Certainly not.

Since the committee is a social institution, the same thing happened to it as to the rest of the other healthy structures during the war – it was urgently reorganized and focused on solving the main problem of the country.

Therefore, some members of the committee are now in the front-line trenches. Continue reading “My article @ European AI Alliance: The War in Ukraine and AI Regulation: Some Controversial Takeaways”

Open Source during War: Challenges of Independent Development Teams in Ukraine

To launch an important initiative, in September — October 2022 I interviewed 15 independent development teams that make open source products for Ukraine’s victory in the war.

During the research, I came up with interesting findings and conclusions that I want to share with you in this post. Continue reading “Open Source during War: Challenges of Independent Development Teams in Ukraine”

The Metaverse, real-world and its correlation

Ahead of the mass production of HMDs I’m pleased to see the consolidation of old terms (AR, VR, AR Cloud, XR, virtual games etc.) into one — Metaverse. It was difficult to explain to third parties the differences and similarities between all these industries earlier but semantic integration into one universal sphere should now increase the capitalization of all players.

I would like to draw your attention to one aspect, ignoring which could lead the Metaverse industry to big problems in the near future. Continue reading “The Metaverse, real-world and its correlation”

AI Bureaucracy vs Human Bureaucracy

I think that each of us has faced the bureaucracy of public authorities when the solution to your personal issue is not provided for in the system or the question is too innovative and unusual that it takes ages to resolve it.

Sometimes there is no solution within the system at all and the system needs modernization (e.g. the adoption of a new law, an act or a judicial decision).

In this case, we can talk about “reprogramming” of human systems, when a person or a group of people has to make changes (or build new mechanisms) with the help of built-in mechanisms of the system.

In fact, reprogramming of one human system occurs with the help of another human system. 

In some respect, one can even say that one group of people tries to change neurons connection of another group of people :=) (I think very few people seriously considered the fact that passing the law ultimately aims to change the connections between neurons in voters’ minds).  Continue reading “AI Bureaucracy vs Human Bureaucracy”

Virtual Reality: Gender and Religious barriers

I sell Virtual Reality solutions of my company Augmented Pixels since 2011.

For the last 2 years we have participated in exhibitions on three continents – North America (the United States), Europe (the Great Britain) and Asia/Middle East (the UAE, Turkey)

As I represent the company at the booth, and communicate directly with people, first feedback about our products comes directly to me.

It is a lot of fun to observe how unexpected obstacles sometimes arise on the way of new technologies due to gender differences and religious traditions of people. Continue reading “Virtual Reality: Gender and Religious barriers”

My Dream is to finish building the drone from my childhood :=)


In the previous blog post “Automotive modeling – my childhood hobby in the USSR” I wrote about how I was building car models and participated in competitions with them when I was 7 years old.

After two years of building model cars, I wanted to focus on creating model aircrafts.

They do not look like modern drones, but definitely are their predecessors.

What is a model aircraft?
It is an airplane with a gasoline or a kerosene engine that flies around the pilot and is controlled by means of special wire ropes. These models are called control line aircrafts in the USA –

Startups: Focusing on Execution Instead of Employees’ Innovation

We often observe that successful startups are created by former employees of other innovative companies, where their ideas were not taken seriously and were left without consideration.

Why does this happening? Why do people with brilliant ideas leave companies and start their own businesses rather than realizing their ideas within existing structures and possibly earn more money easier? Continue reading “Startups: Focusing on Execution Instead of Employees’ Innovation”
