The American manufacturer of microchips Qualcomm has bought the startup Augmented Pixels of Odessa programmer Vitaliy Honcharuk, who is the chairman of the expert committee on artificial intelligence at the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.

Augmented Pixels is a product company that grew out of Goncharuk’s outsourcing business. Since 2015, the startup’s head office is located in Palo Alto, California, but development is underway in Ukrainian offices in Kyiv, Lviv and other cities. Augmented Pixels is based on augmented reality – the direction in which our students can work. According to a Forbes source, Qualcomm also plans to open an R&D center in Ukraine in the near future.
