Predicting a better future

In this complex world, our daily lives are increasingly impacted by big data and machine learning.  Our mission is to bring order to data to enable better and smarter investment and business decisions.

Financial AI

A huge amount of data is generated continuously across the globe. This "big data" is characterized by a massive sample size and high dimensionality, compared with traditional datasets where the sample size is typically larger than the dimension. These attributes generate unique challenges in modeling; commonly employed computational and statistical methods are simply not adequate for effectively analyzing big data. 

The key to value creation from big data is through advanced technologies, such as machine learning, which are able to unearth complex schema.

Big Data Federation uses customized machine-learning algorithms to uncover patterns and assign probabilistic values to events, in particular those that drive financial performance.

Our machine-learning platform delves deeply into financial fundamentals looking for metrics that change business valuation.

Processing billions of targeted data records 24/7 from a diverse and growing number of data sources, our algorithms have no personal opinions, or guesses, and learn from their mistakes.

 

Economic AI

Monetary policy decisions and economic indicators can move global financial markets considerably. Our algorithms have been trained to predict interest rate decisions; since September 2015 we have correctly predicted every Federal Reserve Bank's policy decision weeks and sometimes months ahead of Federal Reserve's announcements.
