AlphaSense is honored to announce that we were named “Best AI/Machine Learning Data Initiative” by the WatersTechnology Inside Market Data and Inside Reference Data Awards. Receiving this award is a testament to our commitment to making AlphaSense the best AI-powered financial and market intelligence platform for our more than 1,500 global clients.

Check out the announcement here.

This is yet another award won this year, right on the heels of being awarded the best financial research and data company two years in a row by G2.

Why We Won

Our platform was recognized for leveraging over 10 years of Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology within the search experience. This AI search technology:

  • suggests the most relevant content types based on your search criteria
  • measures shifts in executive commentary on a topic and perceived tone
  • extracts key topics and themes companies talk about during their earnings calls
  • captures all variations of business and financial terms to ensure no key insight is missing. 

We’ve made strides in building up our proprietary data sets and developing scalable, purpose-built AI solutions that compound user benefits across the entire search experience. Recent features such as Company Topics, aggregate the themes a company is discussing and provides an instant snapshot of their most popular discussion points, major KPIs, and how they’ve changed over time.

This is in addition to our Smart Synonym and Entity Recognition technology that vastly increases the research potential of our users by pinpointing all relevant commentary pertaining to a keyword (and its variations) or a specific company. This allows users to ensure they’re not missing out on key details by expanding the meaning of synonymous terms (eg: grow and increase) or getting noisy search results (eg: picking up on the difference between Amazon and the Amazon rainforest.)Our vast amount of sources, which has significantly grown in the past year, also played a role in winning this award. 

WatersTechnology is the financial services industry’s premier provider of technology and data-related information. In addition to recognizing AlphaSense in this year’s awards, they also awarded us the Best Artificial Intelligence Technology award as part of their 2020 Sell-Side Technology Awards. 

We are proud to power thousands of the world’s leading organizations, including 50% of the S&P 100 and 70% of the top 50 hedge funds, who use AlphaSense to rapidly surface the critical information they need on companies, industries, and market-moving trends.
