OfferZen’s Week in Review: 17 July

18 July 2023, by Josh Nel

We’re launching a weekly article where we round up stats, articles and events from OfferZen in the past week. In our first Week in Review, we’ll look at developers’ most-promising industries for 2023, ChatGPT’s linguistic abilities, how ITONICS implemented Machine Learning models in their product, and more.


AI dominates as Europe’s most promising industry in 2023

AI’s rapid advances over the past year have dominated the headlines following the release of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Given these incredible developments, it should come as no surprise to learn that AI has captured developers’ attention.

In fact, AI dominates the list of most-promising industries: 77.7% of European developers list it as their top industry for 2023. That’s more than the next three industries combined.

The current AI boom is not restricted to ChatGPT and businesses can gain a competitive edge by incorporating it into their product. Here, Tim Terblanche, senior data scientist at ITONICS, talks about the steps they took to successfully incorporate Machine Learning models into their product and shares the lessons they’ve learnt that can help others do the same in their business.
