What AI and automation features are available in Sprout?
Sprout Social’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation features help you go beyond repetitive processes to focus on what matters most: the creativity and strategic thinking no machine can emulate. Sprout offers both proprietary AI tools based on over 10 years of historical social data and an integration with OpenAI.
You may see some of these terms in conversations about AI. The following are brief definitions that explain how we use these terms at Sprout.
AI: Computers that can perform tasks that require problem-solving and learning. Example tasks include speech and language processing and making recommendations based on patterns.
Machine learning (ML): Machine learning is a sub-field of AI. Using machine learning, computers can make predictions based on past behavior and “learn” from new information.
Natural language processing (NLP): Natural language processing is a sub-field of AI that focuses on the recognition and analysis of speech and text. NLP enables computers to parse context and generate meaningful text.
