What big global problem does Citispotter solve?
Pallav and Dushyant were passionate about making the internet a safer, more inclusive place. The need for end-to-end content analysis solutions was increasing because of the volume of content that’s created, but the downside is that content is published on a daily basis that can be non-inclusive, unengaging or damaging to a brand that’s trying to promote its cause or self.
This causes ethical issues for organisations and the upcoming global content regulations – it soon will not be an ethical obligation but a legal responsibility that businesses need to be aware of. Safeguarding content with the use of AI to create inclusive, factual and engaging content by analysing and offering solutions for improvement during the content creation process.
What successes have you had? Any secret top tips?
