Robotics, Disease Prediction and Morning Habits: Which Projects Enrolled in the Digital Breakthrough Accelerator

At the end of March, in Rostov-on-Don, in the South IT-Park, the list of teams that entered the business accelerator of the Digital Breakthrough competition was announced. 20 projects were selected from 223 teams. You will probably hear about many of them, so let’s briefly introduce potential “unicorns”.


The platform is designed for training, repair and operation of robotic systems based on expert knowledge and with the ability to control the learning process. The product will reduce the training time for employees through gamification of the process and the use of artificial intelligence technologies.

The platform consists of a client application in the form of a progressive web application designed to run on tablets and desktops, a set of microservices and databases. The platform does not use cloud technologies and is fully deployed at the customer’s site.

The teacher starts a task for maintenance on the desktop: indicates the telemetry of the equipment (collected using the OPC UA protocol), generates an intelligent checklist, attaches documentation. The student works with the task on a tablet: he looks at telemetry from the equipment, fills out a checklist, looks at tips and documentation, takes a photo and records a video.

After completing the task, a report is generated: the time for operations on the checklist, the number of calls to tips and documentation. You can view photo and video files attached by students.

The platform can be deployed not only in an educational institution, but also in production. In the latter case, it will allow teaching practical cases prepared by experienced employees on real equipment.

2. “Heart”

Intelligent system for assessing the risk of diseases of the cardiovascular system with a decision support function. The system reveals the correlation between traditional factors affecting the risk of cardiovascular diseases – such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, excess weight, and non-traditional parameters – such as education, marital status, region of residence.

How it works: When a new patient enters the appointment, the nurse creates a new outpatient card for the patient and enters there “non-traditional data”, for example, profession, marital status, education, place of residence, village or city. When you open the patient record, there will be two sections: “Risks” and “Recommendations”. By selecting “Risks”, the doctor will see what the patient’s risk of disease is, indicating the factors that influence this risk. The system will analyze the experience of disease progression in similar patients with the same unconventional parameters. In the section “Recommendations” the doctor will see the recommendations formed on the basis of the positive experience of treating similar patients.

With the help of such a decision support system, a cardiologist will be able to correctly diagnose a disease and prescribe the right treatment, relying on an array of big data that will grow with each new patient of any doctor connected to the system. The program will also collect statistics on effective treatments.

3. Arkeda

B2B / B2C service for automatic processing of documents / images, structuring and validation of the meaning of the content. The service digitizes and recognizes documents (accounting, contracts, specifications) and images (aerial photography, phone photos, X-rays). Based on the recognized data, you can build knowledge graphs and look for patterns / anomalies in the data, make recommendation services.


A gamified online entrepreneurship educational program for schoolchildren that teaches how to create projects and manage their development, build business connections. The online tool will allow a university, school or any other institution to solve diverse tasks: to attract applicants, develop a startup and innovation culture, solve educational tasks for mastering certain disciplines (project management, design thinking, entrepreneurship, and others).

Training includes both the development of specific entrepreneurial skills (business planning, business model development, management, marketing, finance) and “soft” skills (the ability to work in a team, search and analyze information, conduct negotiations and interviews with clients and partners ).

5. AI Career

A prototype of an HRM system (Human Resources Management) for full-fledged assistance to HR specialists based on artificial intelligence and machine learning. An HR specialist conducts the entire cycle of work with a digital assistant: accepts applications for the selection of a specialist, forms a vacancy text, considers candidates’ resumes recommended by the system, sends invitations for interviews and testing, and gives feedback to candidates.

The product allows a specialist not to spend a lot of time on the search process itself. The service shows the most relevant resume for the vacancy. The recruiter immediately sees a list of candidates already sorted by candidate matching percentages for job requirements.

Another technology is a machine learning model that analyzes resume text. It highlights key skills and grades for each skill from the text. Then it compares with vacancies and displays the essence of each resume in a visual form.

In fact, Look-and-Cook finds you a master for any request in order to learn from his experience in practice.

9.AI retail CRM

A CRM system with the ability to predictively analyze the digital portrait of customers allows retail companies to recommend those products that will be interesting for specific customers to purchase. ML models analyze data on customers and their transactions. In a user-friendly interface, the manager gets the probability of clients’ readiness to purchase specific bank products.

A smart algorithm will analyze a huge stream of data and give each of them its own conclusions and recommendations: it will suggest the best product for a specific client, analyze the price, and find the best place to open a new outlet.
