_SentiSquare in media
Tomáš has been working for many years at the Faculty of Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, where he is engaged in AI research. He founded Sentisquare together with other colleagues from the university in 2014, which led to the creation of an interesting startup, dedicated to text analytics using artificial intelligence. Sentisquare won the award for Project of the Year in the Artificial Intelligence category in last year's WebTop100 with its customer communication analytics solution within E.On. In this interview, we discuss the typology of clients who use AI capabilities within their customer service, the way SentiSquare works and the development of the company, or the bottlenecks of AI and the possibilities of its future direction.
The Pilsen-based technology company SentiSquare has raised a new investment of one million euros. The money was invested by the Czech IT company IXPERTA and the venture capital fund Fazole Ventures, which together with its colleagues is backed by billionaire Pavel Bouška.

In 2014, when Tomáš was working in the research team of the Faculty of Applied Sciences at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, he had no idea that the same year he and his colleagues would lay the foundation stone of SentiSquare, a startup dealing with text analysis using artificial intelligence. Today, he is the CEO of a successful company whose customers include Kiwi, Rohlik, E.ON and many telephone operators and banks from the Central European region.
When is it worth deploying AI? This varies and depends on the specific company, the specific application and the specific industry - but usually, a lower success rate of the AI than companies believe is sufficient.

A company learns most about its customers' wishes by asking open-ended questions. But when it's a chain store, for example, and it has to ask half a million people in a detailed questionnaire questions like "What should we do to make your next purchase with us more enjoyable?" or "Is there anything you would change in our store?", they would have to read millions of responses. That is, hire a dedicated team of people to monitor and evaluate the feedback for such a task. And that means a lot of extra costs.
The Pilsen-based startup SentiSquare has created an artificial intelligence that can understand and process text in almost any language. So you won't be needed to read and forward an email anymore.
Meet the five winners of each category of the 2019 CX Awards, which recognises projects that improve customer experience. The competition is organised by Clientology. Customer Satisfaction Measurement category winner: SentiSquare. SentiSquare handled the evaluation of customer satisfaction surveys for their client with open-ended questions such as "What do we need to do to give us 10 points next time?".

Work that used to take one person about three weeks to do was completely automated using AI and evaluated within three days.

We work with startups in the fields of artificial intelligence, customer service and e-mobility, says Tomáš Bělohoubek from E.ON. For several years, the energy group E.ON has been searching the market for young, innovative startups that could take its business in a new direction.

They teach things to follow their own artificial intelligence. For example, they've taught a street lamp to turn off when no one is around or to report noisy drunks. And they made a computer understand the meaning of human language and work with it. So far, both are in the form of start-ups - fledgling companies founded by a bunch of students with a good idea and now trying to break into the market.
What do people think of a particular brand. Or even about the whole industry that the company is working in. Knowing this means staying one step ahead of your competitors because it helps you to best meet your customers' expectations. But how do you find out?
