  • Rely on Advanced Technologies and Models: Brain’s robust sentiment scoring technology is based on the combination of various Natural Language Processing techniques. Algorithms have been validated by manually comparing calculated sentiment during positive and negative historical events (e.g. Facebook in 2018) for a large set of companies included in the universe.
