PLDT Enterprise inked a deal with Senti AI through its innovation arm, PLDT Innovation Laboratory (Innolab).
Senti AI—focuses on making intelligent machines to understand the dynamic and ever-evolving culture and communication methods of Filipinos. With PLDT Innolab driven by empowering local startups in the country and curating their solutions to help solve the technology needs of local enterprises, the partnership between the two companies only seemed apt.
In line with the said vision, PLDT Innolab developed key thrusts—among which are business development and ecosystem build, which seek to co-develop solutions with startups as well as cultivate a community of innovators.
When it was first founded in 2015, Senti AI offered a social listening dashboard, Pulse, that allowed users to monitor conversations in local languages—effectively allowing for richer and more in-depth market insights.
Given PLDT Innolab’s business development thrust, Senti AI has been able to successfully fortify the said solution and bring it to more customers—even catering to some of the country’s biggest brands and conglomerates. Today, Senti AI also offers Volant, its forms processing automation tool; and Natter, a localized Chat Assistant API.
Just last year, the Innovative Startup Act was signed into law, effectively pushing for the creation of job opportunities and advancement of innovation in the country through startups. With the government’s optimism for the dynamic industry, more investors have begun eyeing local startups. Such response couldn’t come at a better time as the Philippines is expecting 6.6% economic growth for 2020.
