Background information:

Clueda offers software solutions for the semantic, associative processing and management of knowledge.

As Clueda's algorithms are built to copy associative knowledge processing in human brains, they turn into learning systems over time. With these tools corporate clients are able to establish reliable opinion trends and sentiments by trawling unstructured data and gain unbiased forecasts on impacts of future events. This helps Clueda's clients to generate valuable knowledge context to support their decision making. Clueda has been founded in 2012 in Munich after a decade of thorough academic research and development work in semantic analysis. It has 20 staff and won the “Best in Big Data Award 2013”, sponsored by Germany's leading IT publication “Computerwoche”.
