Poland is increasingly being referred to as a center of innovation and entrepreneurship. We have already written about the reasons why it is worth choosing Poland in the context of IT recruitment or IT outsourcing in the article “Reasons why it is worth choosing Poland for IT outsourcing”.
Polish startups make an impression not only in Poland, but also around the world. In this article, we will take a look at 10 Polish startups that play an important role on a global scale.
What will artificial intelligence choose?
We asked Chat GPT for a list of the best Polish start-ups that are conquering the world. We were curious what companies AI would choose, and moreover, whether each of them actually fit as an answer. It turned out that the list of Polish innovative startups is not fully correct. 2 out of 10 results were suspicious to us, so we checked each of the startups on Google.
It turned out that AI-based tool was wrong about 2 startups. One of them actually created innovative solutions used to this day (audiobook industry) – but it was a platform founded in the United Arab Emirates, not having much in common with Poland. On the other hand, the second company that did not fit as a result was actually founded in Poland (mobile applications industry), but it was created in 2014 and all information on Google as well as the homepage of the startup do not currently exist.
What’s the conclusion?
Chat GPT is an innovative tool that gives a lot of inspiration, which can find really incredibly detailed information, but to fully benefit from its capabilities, a human is still needed. Another conclusion from our testing is that it is worth checking the information in terms of credibility again and still, despite the great impression of this tool, leave room for a slight “distrust” 🙂
