Signal AI Grows Global Footprint with Strategic North American and Asia-Pacific Expansion
Signal AI, the artificial intelligence-powered media monitoring, reputation management, and market intelligence provider, today announced a major expansion into North America. Following tremendous success in the UK and US, Signal AI is putting additional investment into the North American market to expand market coverage and support for regional firms. In addition, the firm is opening its first office in Asia, based in Hong Kong.
US Market Ripe for Innovation
In sectors bedeviled by fragmented and often manual processes for finding relevant insights, Signal AI analyses over 5 million articles a day, pulling out quotes, companies, themes, people and sentiment, automatically translating from nearly 50 languages across 200 countries, surfacing information to business leaders in real-time.
Ranked as one of the UKs fastest growing companies by the Financial Times, Signal AI continues to scale extraordinarily fast, disrupting the established market intelligence players with real-time, unlimited and automated services. Signal AI’s award-winning product sits on the worlds largest repository of news and premium content, and an ever-growing pool of 2.8 million sources including broadcast, international, online, trades, social media, legal and regulatory information.
“Our goal is to build the worlds premier insights and intelligence business, accessing the broadest and most diverse data sets available. This expansion into North America and Asia demonstrates how rapidly we are advancing our business and our technology”, said David Benigson, Signal AIs CEO and co-founder. “Organisations and agencies need more powerful tools to gain deeper, unlimited market intelligence in real-time. Signal AI fulfils this requirement and through our rapidly expanding international presence, we can support even more global clients with highly tailored market intelligence solutions at scale.”
New Leadership & Strategic Locations in New York and Hong Kong
With a strong roster of global clients, Signal AI provides hyper-relevant, machine learning technology solutions to new and existing clients in North America and internationally. Part of this investment will be to grow US operations by expanding its New York base, creating dozens of new jobs and opportunities within the industry.
The international expansion is led by Matt Brown, President, Americas & Asia-Pacific, a veteran in driving rapid growth in global market intelligence and communications technology businesses. Brown joins Signal AI from Nasdaq, where he served as the Global Head of Sales for Nasdaqs corporate solutions business, then taking on the role of Senior Vice President and GM for the digital communications, public relations services, and media intelligence divisions, culminating in Brown spearheading the successful divestiture of all three units. Prior to Nasdaq, he held a variety of senior leadership positions across revenue and operational functions at Thomson Reuters.
“Cutting edge AI and data science are in our business DNA, and we harness both to solve core information insight challenges whether you work in PR & Comms, risk, tax, and compliance, or M&A and business development. Quite simply we deliver real-time unlimited market intelligence and media monitoring that ensures senior business leaders stay in the know,” said Matt Brown, President, Americas & Asia-Pacific at Signal AI “If you are working to a tight deadline or looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack, theres no time to be manually sifting through vast complex data sets whether that is media coverage, tax laws or financial regulations. Signal AIs machine learning cuts time on these tasks by 80%, boosting productivity and extracting crucial insights faster.”
AI Disrupts Old Style Market Intelligence Monitoring & Reporting
Winners of the 2018 AI Pioneer Award at the UK National Business Awards, the Signal AI platform is built from the ground up using AI that is continually being developed and extended. Led by chief data scientist and co-founder, Dr. Miguel Martinez, and his team, Signal AIs platform utilises this technology to take in quality data feeds and autonomously interrogates them to find and report real-time market intelligence for professionals across the media, tax, regulatory and legal fields.
Natural language processing lets anyone ask the platform to perform the complex searches that they need, without having to know Boolean or other forms of specialist search logic. Over time, the system learns what is most relevant to each user in order to create truly personalised insights and results, from share of voice and coverage data to key messaging and trends. Signal AI is empowering business leaders to effectively steer their organisation, regardless of location or language.
