Under the hood at IntellectSpace
IntellectSpace uses computational linguistics to compile, maintain and continue to expand a massive database of key contacts in business, such as executives, board members, and decision makers.
In building the database of contacts and quantitatively analyzing qualitative attributes to reveal relationships (such as memberships, partnerships, investor relations, family ties, educations, and executive connections), IntellectSpace focuses on parsing biographies to get a comprehensive view of each individual’s connections, both past and present. The data goes beyond investigative reports and public profiles to include information from sources such as SEC filings, press releases, and biographical Web sites.
With proprietary data-mining and natural language processing systems, this huge amount of information is gathered from unstructured sources.
This data is ensured accurate by an extensive quality-checking system. IntellectSpace’s database is one of the largest and most complete of its kind, currently containing upwards of 30 million contacts, and can be used to vastly extend a customer’s existing networks.
