The Causality Link platform is an AI-powered system that collects millions of documents globally, in real-time, to identify explicit cause-and-effect statements relating indicators and events, aggregating the knowledge of thousands of authors into a single deductive system. Having processed and analysed more than 100 million texts in 27 languages spanning the past seven years of market activity, the platform provides a global look at the forces acting on the financial markets.
With the new features, the platform now enables precise alerts on specific news derived from its analysis of over 8,000 newspaper sources and government publications. These automated alert queries produce hourly notifications on new content relevant to any KPI of a company, industry, country or portfolio. The queries leverage both the causal graph and signal extracted from texts to define the scope of the analysis and issue precise alerts for each KPI driver. Accessed through the platform’s Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) API, users can also input Bayesian Network (BN) queries to generate BNs around specific KPIs, providing a maximum coherence aggregated thesis. These BNs are used to generate trading signals or compare the thesis extracted from the news to a locally developed one.
