How Can the Book Industry Benefit From Artificial Intelligence? (Sigmund Talks and SummarizeBot)
The German startup Sigmund Talks and the Latvian startup SummarizeBot were named “Content Startups of the Year” on October 11 at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The two winners were chosen as part of the CONTENTshiftprogramme, an accelerator geared towards startups active in the content industry. CONTENTshift was launched three years ago by the Börsenvereinsgruppe. This is the first time the programme has ever had two winners.
Sigmund Talks is an intelligent chatbot that allows users to create individualised content for use in content marketing. SummarizeBot is a toolbox that draws on artificial intelligence and semantic analysis to aggregate key content, thus allowing users to manage large amounts of information.
