Horizon scan

Staying ahead in a fast-changing world

A data-driven approach to scanning the contextual environment

To follow developments in tech, science, business, society, and the regulatory environment is a daunting yet critical task for any future-oriented organization. Separating signal from noise in the flood of information is notoriously difficult.

Dcipher Analytics makes it easy for competitive intelligence (CI) professionals to mine insights from large bodies of public information, such as patents, scientific articles, policy documents, and news.

Most of the information about the world around us is unstructured

Text analytics is a powerful way to extract useful information about the business environment from text sources.

  • Technology landscaping through patent analysis
  • Analysis of state-of-the art scientific research and identification of researchers and institutions through mining of academic articles
  • Accelerate text coding by iteratively training an AI-based improvement loop to locate all the relevant passages
  • Map narratives and themes in text data
