Develop what will be important tomorrow.

Innovation has always been important for the success of a company. We believe, however, that staying ahead of trends in our customer industries will become even more important than today. Reliably identifying weak signals that evolve into trends will become a key capability and a major success factor for sustainable innovation in the future. This requires gathering information from various sources like domain experts, trade press, scientific publications, social media, literally all relevant sources on the web - and putting it into context to derive actionable insights. The main challenge lies in leveraging the right methods from fields like qualitative data analysis, natural language processing, information theory and machine learning. Eventually, the goal is to combine and contextualize meaningful information in an explainable way so that it can be shared easily with the everyone seeking for such input for their work.
