Real Time ESG Tracking From StockSnips


The researchers at StockSnips have been transforming unstructured data into financial sentiment insights for several years. Their AI / ML (Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning) based system reads thousands of articles and tags the relevant snippets to derive a quantified investor sentiment measure that could drive stock performance.
