Also honored in:

“EdgeTheory is an AI-Powered Narrative Intelligence company. EdgeTheory’s technology allows customers to understand and participate in the narratives that shape their world.

Every day on websites, social media, blogs, and other online channels, countless conversations take shape, spread, and exert influence over everything from business and politics to science to culture. These conversations become stories — “narratives” — that carry with them meaning, purpose, themes, and goals. True, false, or somewhere in between, narratives can win or lose business, elections, and wars.

EdgeTheory’s AI-powered technology allows its customers to analyze the ways conversations become narratives, how those narratives grow, and how they shape their world. These tools empower users to see patterns and trends among the people and organizations that drive these narratives, revealing the ways they originate, who is amplifying them, how they get distorted and repurposed, and their potential impact on everything from businesses to social issues to governments. With the insight drawn from this intelligence, users of EdgeTheory’s technology are better able to design and deploy messaging campaigns to participate in those narratives, and to measure their success.”
