According to Jakub Šuster, co-founder and CEO of elv.ai: “We perceive that the media space has changed significantly and that the need to protect online discussions and social networks from hatred is growing. In our native Slovakia, we monitor and moderate the discussions of roughly one-third of the media market and help several significant institutions that want to control the posts of their online discussions without misinformation, hoaxes or hate speech. We are pleased that even in the Czech Republic, we have quickly found conscious media houses that consider it their duty to protect their fans and users from hateful and misinformation, both human and artificial.”

Funding originates from the CB ESPRI Impact One investment fund, which is dedicated to assisting businesses and nonprofits that have a good social impact in defending human rights in information services research, teaching, and training.
