Artificial Intelligence for alternative data

AI for Alternative Data

Build market beating alternative data sets with AI



Businesses, especially in financial sectors, used market data provided by stock market indexes, charts and other industry specific, limitied sources. However, with the recent explosions in Machine Learning and data, smart businesses are recognising the value of alternative data sets for investment decisions.



Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing are used to extract valuable data points from one of the largest data sets in the world; the web. By training an AI system to recognise contextually important information within an unstructured data set, you can gain vast and competitive alternative data sets to power your business, trades and decisions.



Our ability to process vast amounts of unstructured web data and find the valuable parts via our Skim Engine™ make us your perfect Alternative Data partner. Working with our expert Data Scientists we’ll identify unique data sources and create data sets that update and evolve over time, keeping you one step ahead of the competition.

Our mission
