At DAC.digital, we believe in the power of artificial intelligence and the ability it brings to different aspects of everyday life and business. Artificial intelligence research and progress has gained momentum in recent years. As an artificial intelligence software development company, we are ready to help you take your business to the next level by using different research areas in this branch of computer science.
What’s the difference between
AI and ML?
It’s an important question to answer. Although artificial intelligence and machine learning are sometimes used as a synonym, these two are still different technologies. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a broad concept that entails creating intelligent machines that simulate human intelligence, language, thinking capability and behaviour. It is mainly used to perform tasks commonly considered repetitive and tedious.
Machine learning, on the other hand, means applying a specific type of AI or system (AI systems) that allows the machine to learn from the provided data without explicit programming. In other words, AI does not require pre-programming. It uses algorithms that work with their intelligence. Machine learning means acquiring knowledge through data.
In short, AI is a broad concept, and ML narrows it down to the specific needs of specific tasks. It uses a subset of AI, for example, automatically allowing a machine to learn from past structured and unstructured data.
Although some predictions say that artificial intelligence could function independently, it will require human intelligence to function and progress in the foreseeable future.
Our areas of expertise in the AI development software.
We can provide dedicated experts and expert systems in emerging technologies. Term artificial intelligence is not limited to one area but is an integral part of other fields, including computer vision and machine learning which we will gladly help you with. Let’s review some examples of AI use that are important and popular.
Identify the best configurations of a model for the current needs: you can achieve it via hyperparameter optimisation. It allows the models to perform generalisations to operate effectively with training and new data inputs.
Minimise the loss in the model: gradient descent calculates the gradients of the loss function concerning the model’s parameters. The algorithm adjusts the parameters toward the steepest descent to find the optimal values. The stochastic gradient descent variant randomly selects a subset of training samples for gradient estimation. It’s widely used in large-scale training and deep learning, as it helps to reduce computational costs and speeds up convergence to boost performance.
Prevent overfitting of the model: L1 and L2 regularisation add a penalty to the loss based on the model’s parameters. Regularisation encourages simpler and more generalised models.
Divide the model across different devices or machines: model parallelism and distributed training allow parallelising computation and workload sharing. These techniques enable faster training and inference times in AI modelling.
Naturally, there are more methods for optimising AI-based solutions. The best way to find the most suitable one is to define the needs of your AI or ML project and then tailor the best optimisation plan. Practical uses of optimisation techniques include:
Multi-vehicle routing for transportation
Planning for a fleet of vehicles is a process that maximises the revenue from the available resources but has to consider numerous constraints like the maximal permissible amount of working hours of drivers, different fuel and fees among countries, as well as the potential to take an additional parcel when the truck is not fully loaded. Automating this planning can benefit the company, ensuring both short- and long-term benefits.
Price optimisation for travelling
Travel agencies often have to find the golden mean between their margin and the client’s willingness to pay. An algorithm that considers historical data and the data retrieved in real time about the available offers could be used to maximise the margin dynamically, assuring at the same time that it won’t be lower than a certain threshold.
Energy demand-side load balancing
The interconnection of various energy consumers in a common grid raises the problem of limited energy efficiency of the providers, varying energy prices, and the limited storage capacity of local magazines. Therefore, an appropriate load balancing should be implemented to manage the demand-side energy allocation.
Planning and scheduling
- Improving efficiency
- Enhancing decision-making processes by deductive reasoning and other methods
- Real-time adaptability
- Resource optimisation
- Upscaling and downscaling
- Data-driven insights
You can use different types of planning and scheduling algorithms to achieve different results.
Backward state space planning (BSSP)
Also known as backward planning or goal-driven planning, this AI planning system is another method that searches through state space. Contrary to the FSSP, BSSP starts from the goal state and systematically reasons backwards to determine the actions and states needed to reach that goal.
Backward state space planning involves reasoning backwards from the goal state, determining the necessary actions and states to achieve that goal, and constructing a plan or solution that satisfies those requirements. It is a practical approach in various planning and problem-solving applications within artificial intelligence.
Forward state space planning (FSSP)
FSSP behaves similarly to forward state space search. With an initial state S in any domain, we perform some necessary actions and obtain a new state S, which includes some new terms. This is an example of a progression process.
Forward state space planning involves systematically exploring a problem’s state space, considering actions and their consequences, and searching for a sequence of actions that leads from an initial state to a desired goal state. It is fundamental in many planning and problem-solving applications within artificial intelligence.

Conversational AI, speech AI and generative AI.
These three types of artificial intelligence have especially gained momentum in recent years.
It’s widely used in chatbots on websites and as separate applications. However, it can involve multiple communication channels, while chatbots only employ text. It can also generate real-time responses and better understand the user’s needs than chatbots based on keywords and static answers. One of the most prominent users of this type of AI involves customer care and social media management. Conversational AI can find its use in the following:
- Human-like chatbots for customer care: can help handle complaints, provide general information about the company and status reports and integrate with external systems.
- Salesbots: those bots can generate an offer for the client based on the project history and describe past projects in the desired category.
- Virtual assistants can help in everyday matters like ordering food or deliveries, making reservations and purchases, etc.
Real-time interpreting and translations: an intermediary system that can translate the textual information exchanged between different users in real-time, prepare text summarisation and reformulation if needed (e.g. summarise the main outcomes of the meeting; what was the main topic of a call)
It can contribute to managing documentation and customers. It can add a self-service option, automating some of the processes. They also offer good scalability options and can enhance experiences by reducing hold times and offering immediate assistance with more straightforward methods where human intervention is optional. It can be used for:
- Speech enhancement: could help you sound more professional and be more understandable. At the same time, it could also be used to understand better what the client is saying, especially when the sound quality could be better, or the client’s pronunciation could be more understandable.
- Real-time meeting captioning: it could be implemented in conference rooms to take notes from a meeting and provide textual information to people remotely connected to a conference room, especially when the sound quality is poor.
- Expressive voice bots for customer care: automated customer care is often repellent due to a strongly mechanical-sounding voice, and customers try to reach a human being. On the other hand, human-made recordings have limited capabilities in terms of cases which can be served. Therefore, a human-sounding voice bot could remedy the abovementioned issues, ensure a lower rejection rate at the beginning of the conversation, and efficiently offload human operators.
It can produce realistic and seemingly original content. From short texts, poetry and books to artworks and other types of content. It can be helpful to create bulk items for companies that require a lot of graphic design or written content. It can be ideal for writing news articles, blog posts, and stories.
Uses for generative AI include the following:
- Automated multilanguage transactions: a tool that can take a textual input and translate it automatically into multiple languages. This can be used to prepare human-like translations of entire websites, documents, or conversations with others, opening new business opportunities and reducing overall costs and timelines related to translations.
- Personal design assistant: it can take as input text or sketch and propose designs that align with the provided guidelines. Can prepare alternative designs, fill in the missing parts of the image or remove specific objects from images.
- Taking notes: extracting crucial information from long texts related to a specific subject as bullet points can serve as a time-saver and minimises the risk of overlooking important detail from emails, descriptions of products or meeting transcriptions.
