  • A platform based on Artificial Intelligence.

It’s a continually treatment of data that allows Hyperion to be efficient. Its AI analyzes streaming content, assigns stability scores, and makes forecasts of stability for every spot on the globe. These assessments can mitigate risk, recognize threats, and identify opportunities.

Geospark Analytics is convinced that the combination of breaking information and long term information is the future in risks analysis. The AI system collects structured and unstructured data from a lot of platforms : news media, social media, natural disaster information, travel warnings, economic indications… By the use of machine learning, Hyperion is capable to analyse and show to the user which informations are relevant and usable to make the best decision.

“A simple stream of real-time data is overwhelming and ultimately drives people to information overload and decision-making paralysis. The age we live in is characterized by Infobesity, an emerging condition that looks at information overload as the root cause of the inability in effective decision-making” John Goolgasian, Chief Operating Officer, GeoSpark Analytics.
