It’s more accurate than keyword based tools because the Smart Moderation AI platform uses Machine Learning Algorithms based on Natural Language Processing to understand inappropriate content. Smart Moderation works just like a human assistant and it is less expensive than 24/7 human moderation.

In addition to Smart Moderation’s SAAS business model where their system is currently integrated with Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Hootsuite. There are also lots of API integration possibilities; they can work with any web based or mobile platform.

Smart Moderation is a result of 3 years R&D progress in cooperation with AI, NLP and morphology academicians. Smart Moderation has been launched in February 2016. 

By 2019, the global content marketing industry is expected to be worth $300 billion.

Smart Moderation believes that it is a real pain point to have abusive comments smeared underneath your brand’s social media content. Justin Bieber case for an example, who had to suspend his account in Instagram due to all the unwanted comments in August 2016. Not only Celebrities but also politicians, social media influencers, brands, e commerce websites, in other words people with critical followers on one side and brands of all sizes from start-ups to fortune 500, they all dedicate resources to generate and to moderate digital content.

Smart Moderation Co Founder Ciler Ay Tek said “ We believe in technology; we are in the age of AI and VR, we are talking about permanent human settlement on the Red Planet, there are self-driving cars. So, it is unbelievable to see companies and people still defend an opinion of human moderation and waste a human’s valuable time with manuel moderation of inappropriate comments which could be already done by technology.

As Co-Founders, they are both Engineers with an expertises in Strategic Marketing Management, NLP and Artificial Intelligence.

Despite the young age of the company, they have already managed to achieve impressive results. For example, they won IBM Smart Camp 2015 and have been selected as one of top 5 Artificial Intelligence Startups to demo @ TechCrunch Disrupt AI Showcase Stage in the Artificial Intelligence Pavilion at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco September 2016 and recently they were invited to Websummit 2016 to pitch.

Also, their platform currently moderates 1.5 million comments a day, what is quite significant, we think.
