Signal AI, the leading global External Intelligence company, today announced the launch of its External Intelligence Graph, a comprehensive view of an organization’s external world built on real-time data and content.
Signal AI’s External Intelligence Graph maps the relationships between the things a modern organisation needs to care about, like climate change, supply chain risk or competitor intelligence, and highlights how an organization is “associated” to these important topics. This entirely new kind of data, making sense of the huge amounts of unstructured content now available, can show how relationships are changing, and also offers up “unknown unknowns” surfacing new, and previously unlinked, connections to an organisation or individual.
Clancy Childs, Chief Product Officer, said, “In part due to the rise of stakeholder capitalism and ESG focus, businesses are increasingly affected by the actions and behaviors of the people and organizations in the world outside of the company walls. The amount of external, unstructured data that now must be considered in modern decision making is daunting. With our AI technology working at scale, we provide the external intelligence to help businesses cut through the noise and understand the topics and events that are affecting them both directly and indirectly. It’s truly a game changer for business decision making and organizations operating at scale.”
The External Intelligence Graph can now solve the challenges many organizations face for example helping Chief Risk Officers in understanding and quantifying looming risk by providing a risk radar, trained to understand the organization’s external ecosystem. It can help Chief Communications Officers understand how their organization is perceived in the market, which topics they and their competitors are most associated with, and quantify previously “unmeasurable” concepts such as their overall reputation, trust, and perception. It can also help Investment Managers understand which potential investments may carry reputational or organizational risk ultimately impacting the performance of the investment.
Signal AI already serves over 40% of the Fortune 500 and this latest capability has already been taken up by some of the world’s largest companies and governments.
Luca Grulla, CTO Signal AI, said, ”Our External Intelligence Graph, powered by AIQ, takes the world’s burgeoning unstructured content and turns it into actionable insight to augment today’s business decisions, providing organizations with a new kind of in-the-moment critical intelligence. We are able to provide an entirely new kind of data through our unique External Intelligence Graph, and an exciting new chapter in harnessing unstructured data awaits.”
This is the latest in a raft of upcoming new product announcements since the company has invested its latest $50m investment round heavily into its AI R+D function.
