How much time does it take to learn text analytics and sketch out a bot for business?

With Kentivo it only takes a 45-minute workshop! And you’ll get a taste for the future!

Yesterday, during the Innovation Symposium ‘Tomorrow is Today’ hosted by the Dutch Public Prosecution Service (Openbaar Ministerie) in Vianen, Mike van Pamelen & Ellis Zijlstra gave a workshop on how we can create bots for businesses by leveraging the power of text analytics. Bots can quickly become our best friends by working with us (and sometimes for us) on monitoring and analyzing information contained in documents.

In the workshop the myth that massive amounts of data are needed was debunked. The key is to simply pick the right tasks for the bot and figure out how you can properly and quickly train it, just like you would with a new employee or coworker.


There will be unique aspects associated with specific business processes that must be taken into account if we are to properly leverage what the various techniques on text analytics and machine learning algorithms have to offer. For example, the data volume, the diversity in information content, and the fact that this information can be highly sensitive to a specific business context, are some of the things that should be considered when creating a bot.

At the end of the event the participants left with some great ideas on where and how to apply these technologies in their part of the organization, as well as with some guidelines for how to start on this road.

It is true… Tomorrow is already here!”
