Our technology is years in the making, growing out of the long history of social media consulting from our sister firm, Converseon. For over a decade, Converseon has helped leading brands harness the value of social intelligence to meet business objectives. Named a leader in the Forrester Wave of Listening Platforms, Q1 2014 (including "best data quality") the firm has garnered an enviable reputation for innovation, data quality and actionable intelligence among many of the world's leading brand and organizations.
Revealed Context was spun off from Converseon in 2012 so that this highly accurate social insight technology could be used for purposes far beyond those of Converseon’s clients. Going beyond simple text analytics, our team recognized that Converseon was sitting on a wealth of machine learning training data and designed our solution to take advantage of that unique asset.
Our combination of text analytics and machine learning, using great volumes of high-quality training data led to the Innovation of the Year award from DataWeek, and we aren't stopping there.
