Implementing cutting-edge solutions using Artificial Intelligence

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence or A.I. is having a machine or computer simulate human intelligence. This includes learning, reasoning and self-correction among other complex tasks.


What is Machine Learning?

Machine Learning is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence. It tries to get computer to learn the same way as humans do. It uses a non-symbolic approach to do so (so computers aren't taught same symbols as we humans understand, they get to learn new ones they consider important by themselves).


What is Deep Learning?

It is a subfield of Machine Learning that attempts to copy the human brain and specifically it's neurons in order to achieve the same complex tasks human do.


Do you sell products or services?

We sell services and we leave our customer think of cool products to build on top of what we can offer: A.I. development services.


Do you do staff-augmentation?

Yes! We can start a project from scratch or join a team who is already working in order to accomplish a goal faster or to new skills to the team.


Why Agile?

We work with agile methodologies, trying to deliver business value to our customers as soon as possible. With our iterative methodology we aim to do continuous deliveries so we can identify improvements alongside our customers. Agile is meant to deal with changing environments and requirements, it helps prioritize, reduce scope and gives flexibility at the same time.


Where are you located?

We are headquartered in Montevideo, Uruguay. Uruguay has been identified by Harvard as one of the most advanced software development centers in the region and is described in this post by Medium as the Silicon Valley of South America. It is only one hour ahead of Eastern Time. It is one of the prefered location for US and Europe companies to do near-shore development.


Why the name Marvik?

Marvik’s is named after Marvin Minsky, founder of the A.I. Lab in MIT and considered to be one of the fathers of this field. Apple is the owner of domain marvin.ai so we got marvik.ai left...


How do you charge for your services?

We charge per sprint per engineer. Sprints are usually two weeks long.


Just some A.I. humor

It's always better if Dilbert says it
