Featured Datasets

Networks and Peer Momentum

We use natural language processing (NLP) and AI to analyze various datasets, such as company filings and patent registries and map out intricate networks that reveal connections beyond standard industry classifications. This method helps us identify ‘peer momentum’—a dynamic where the performance or behavior of related companies affects each other. ​

Technology and Innovation

Our system measures a company’s exposure to new trends. By analyzing this data, we generate actionable insights to guide investment decisions. For example, we recommend long positions in companies heavily involved in promising technologies and short positions in those with less exposure, aiming to capture returns driven by technological innovation.​
