Savvy services

Collective Intellect (CI) has launched a new version of its Media Intelligence service, a media research solution targeted to institutional investors, hedge fund traders and the broader financial community.

Media Intelligence employs a three-phase filtering approach to unstructured data. First, Collective Intellect creates "TopicNets" (a collection of content sources related to a single topic for all content areas of interest to institutional investors). With its TopicNet algorithm, CI can identify and rank the most credible sources of information, which, the company says, differentiates it from other unstructured data filtering tools. Second, CI's technology eliminates irrelevant, duplicate or splog-sourced information. Finally, each individual posting is ranked for relevancy using an adaptive, multi-factor algorithm that incorporates feedback from users through a content voting system. This approach ensures that individual users receive content that is most relevant for their own investment research requirements, says CI.

Major features of Collective Intellect's new solution include:

  • real-time feeds of blogs, message boards and other types of unstructured data, combined with traditional news media;
  • a simple, easy-to-read user interface that gives traders an immediate view into what's happening now with the stocks, sectors and industries they track;
  • minute-by-minute content refreshes content;
  • intuitive methods for refining searches about tickers and themes; and
  • hosted desktop and email delivery.
