Predictive analytics for geopolitical intelligence
We've built a predictive analytics suite that tracks and forecasts where geopolitical volatility will happen around the world — events like civil protests, labor strikes, and regime changes.
Our systems monitor digital conversations on open-source social and collaborative media, using statistical and machine learning models to combine these signals into near-real time indexes of political volatility within any given country, operational footprint, or topic of interest. Specifically, we've built:
- A data platform and a large taxonomy and database of past geopolitical events
- Machine learning and statistical systems for identifying data sources indicative of volatility
- Benchmarking and backtesting tools to verify their validity
- Visualizations and alerting systems that identify locations and topics with increasing volatility
