Project Overview

"AlphaSense, offers a specialized search engine that slashes research time. From thousands of sources, including more than 1,000 sell-side research providers and more than 35,000 public corporations, the product gathers relevant public and licensed financial data such as broker research, SEC filings and press releases. It then layers on top semantic indexing that can understand financial language. This means a search for “revenue” will bring up not only documents containing that word, but also those using words like “sales” or “top line,” while excluding references to “cost of sales.” It also zeros in on the most germane references so users do not have to control-F their way through a document."
"Linguistic search algorithms allow you to search across millions of documents with a few clicks, dramatically reducing research times"
