About DataSwarm

Cutting edge analytics of today driving the enterprises of tomorrow
Applying social analytics end to end, from insight to prediction

The DataSwarm Analytic Engine (DAE) uses advanced analytics to create highly valuable intelligence across all areas of the value chain, across many sectors. Core technologies include dynamic algorithms and machine learning, language processing and high speed data analytics.

The system was originally designed to solve the problem of finding and sequencing trends and memes quickly and efficiently. It was built to process vast quantities of data, and integrate social media, other media, internal enterprise and "Internet of Things" datastreams. It has proved very flexible and has been used for applications from front end customer insight to back end customer satisfcation, from influencer identification to election prediction.

The DAE is format independent, and so can work in most languages (human or machine).
