Boston is one of the most active places in the US for technology innovation and home to hundreds of exciting young companies with incredible new ideas. In support of the Boston tech startup scene, I have been publishing a series of short blog posts spotlighting some of our most interesting neighbors.
Due to our continued fascination with big data and support for companies playing in the space it seemed only logical to write about Recorded Future for this edition. These guys are also headquartered in Cambridge, with offices in Göteborg, Sweden and Arlington, VA.
They constantly collect real-time data from web sources such as news, blogs, and public social media and use their technology to analyze trends and identify past, present, and future events. These events are then linked to the people, places, and organizations that matter to their clients, who include Fortune 500 companies and leading government agencies.
Recorded Future’s team of computer scientists, statisticians, linguists, and technical business people offer up an array of software products and services centered around web intelligence. They also provide the Recorded Future API, a web service that allows developers to get in on the action by accessing Recorded Future’s index for large scale analysis of online media flow.
If you’re interested, there’s lots more about their products and services on their website.
Stay tuned for the next startup spotlight.
