It’s time to introduce the first of our presenters: Samuil Aleksov, Chief Software Engineer at EPAM, Borislav Nikolov, Senior Designer at EPAM, and Martin Chaov, Lead Software Architect at DraftKings.
Sam Aleksov will share more about the topic “Navigating the sea of generative open-source models”. Once again, he will delve into detail into the computer science world.
Borislav Nikolov is a Creative and a Senior Designer at EPAM. His talk “AI & Design: The Moloch Dilemma” will discuss how AI affects design not only as a controversial tool of the future but what are the philosophical questions & implication of it being part of our daily lives.
Martin Chaov’s topic is called “Github Copilot vs. Reality” and will explain more about AI and software development. The session kicks off with an introduction to the role of AI in coding, followed by a quick primer on the GPT model that fuels GitHub Copilot.

MEET SOME OF OUR SPEAKERS
Since the start of the pandemic situation nearly all technical conferences adapted by shifting to online events rather than actual physical ones. It has been an interesting process and allowed us to expand beyond the individual geographic location and reach out to really interesting speakers from across the world. On the other hand, we were starting to crave the real human contact and networking that comes with a live event. EPAM Bulgaria’s team has come up with a solution for this situation.
Drive-In Conf. sounded like a very interesting format and I am glad that I managed to become a part of the first conference of this kind in Bulgaria.
For several years now, I have been sharing my experience in enriched reality and computer graphics, because I believe that there is a potential for a very different and creative collaboration between user and machine, as the technologies get more and more accessible. The big screen allowed me to show several interesting apps and to present the content in a suitable way.
Samuil Aleksov, Chief Software Engineer at EPAM, who presented the Immersive Media talk.
This time it was very interesting since we shot the video of the presentation in the city of Burgas. This summer, I have the opportunity to work by the seaside as a part of the EPAM Remote by design concept.”
Ivaylo Pashov, Chief Software Engineer at EPAM, who presented the topic Modern Event-Driven Systems.
