              MultiplAI

              MultiplAI is an API that takes in a base ad and outputs customized ads using various AI tools. The end goal is to generate more user engagement and a higher conversion rate. We use ChatGPT and Dall-E to convert the initial text and picture provided to us and customize it to one particular customer group, or even one particular customer, based on the data that is available about them. With increasing AI capabilities and more data being gathered for each individual user, big platforms and search engines will be able to not only cater the ads they show to a group of people, but literally personalize them for each individual user.

              Creator Alde

              This app is a powerful tool designed to assist content creators who have a substantial following of over 5000 viewers or followers. By leveraging the YouTube API, the app can efficiently read through all the comments and classify them according to their sentiment, toxic content, or spam. After classifying the comments, the app creates a word embedding using cohere AI, which helps to identify patterns and group similar comments together. These comments are then grouped into three clusters using KMeans. By clustering the comments, content creators can quickly analyze and understand the nature of the comments and identify any common themes or topics that resonate with their audience. Using the analysis of the clustered comments, the app generates a summary of the main themes and extracts the primary topics. These topics are presented to the content creators, along with suggested content ideas for future posts. This helps content creators to understand the interests and preferences of their audience better and create content that resonates with their viewers. In conclusion, this app provides content creators with a streamlined approach to understanding their audience's preferences and interests by analyzing the comments on their posts. By classifying, clustering, and summarizing comments, the app provides a valuable tool for generating new content ideas that will engage and excite their audience, leading to increased views and followers.

              Top Applicant Speedpass

              Finding top applicants is a time consuming, rigorous process that involves juxtaposing many resumes for comparison. This process is messy and may overlook qualified candidates in favor of time. TAS is the ultimate time-saving intelligent tool that allows recruiters to select their top candidates to interview. Instead of reviewing each submission one-by-one, a list of resumes is uploaded to TAS and analyzed. All resume data is parsed via OCR to allow recruiters to input both text and image-based PDFs. The recruiter then specifies an assessment question ("Which of these candidates for Finance Manager has experience in the Aviation industry?") to which GPT-3's assessment of that criteria will be provided back to the recruiter.

              Fudl app

              Are you tired of overspending on groceries every month and wasting your time reviewing supermarkets' promo materials? Fudl is the answer to all your problems! Our revolutionary AI-powered app is designed to help you save money on your grocery bill without compromising on quality. With Fudl, you can plan your purchases, analyze discounts and special offers, discover analogs of products you need for less price, find more savings with value-sized items, and send your orders directly to the delivery service. Let me explain all the features in a more detailed way: By using Fudl's personalized recommendations, you can use your grocery budget to find the best deals on the products you need. Fudl's AI technology analyzes your shopping list, gives you recommendations based on your individual preferences, and suggests alternative products that are just as good, if not better, at a lower cost. Fudl's innovative technology also allows you to split one order into several from different grocery chains, which can save you up to 50% on your grocery bill. This means you can buy in for the next week or plan your purchases for the weeks ahead, without worrying about overspending. Using Fudl to split your order, you can save money and collect additional points from grocery loyalty programs while still getting the needed products. Fudl uses databases from online stores to provide you with the best possible recommendations. For this example, we tested our algorithms on three major chains in Slovenia - Mercator, Spar, and Tus and got phenomenal savings from 10 to 40% on single bills. To find the most successful alternative for each product, we utilize the power of AI to determine its coordinates in a multidimensional space. By doing so, we can identify products that are similar in quality, volume, and other characteristics. Our intelligent algorithms then display the closest analogs to the original product, giving you the information you need to make an informed purchase decision.
