Modular Core Capabilities
Rational Exuberance is built from a specific combination of our core technologies trained to understand the context of industry-specific language. It combines proprietary algorithms for metadata and snippet extraction, labeling, content enrichment, machine learning, and deep learning, activation functions, and sentiment analysis to create dynamic continuously learning models that produce differentiated outputs yielding predictive value.
Industry Specific Training
Industry analysts who understand key topics and related nuances create semantically rich training datasets on the order of less than .1 percent of the data from which Rational Exuberance learns, thus scaling expertise. By understanding industry context in an adaptive manner, Rational Exuberance is able to accurately compute sentiment with a high level of semantic accuracy. It learns and understands granular concepts like "crack spreads" and "revPAR" and a continuously expanding topical coverage and depth of understanding.
Continuous Learning and Improvement
The core technology powering Rational Exuberance has the unique ability to adapt dynamically and incorporate new information and contexts as they arise. Since our systems continuously learn, improve, and builds of new insights, we expect the value of Rational Exuberance to increase over time as it uncovers deeper insights from higher value data sources and develops a richer understanding across a variety of domains.
