NERD Graphic

Kensho NERD (Named Entity Recognition and Disambiguation) is a cutting-edge machine learning system that unlocks the full potential of your textual data by linking it to existing sources of structured knowledge. Trained on millions of business-related documents, NERD is the only technology on the market specifically optimized to extract financial entity information from text documents.

With NERD you can:

  • Uncover the companies, subsidiaries, and other financial organizations that appear in your textual data, powering smart search and supercharged research workflows
  • Link those entities to their entries in S&P Global's rich Capital IQ database, augmenting your textual data by making new connections and enabling deeper insights
  • Leverage the unique power of NERD's AI to find people, places, and events with NERD's Wikimedia engine, which links to a broad knowledge base containing tens of millions of entities

Discover powerful synergies when you combine NERD with other Kensho AI-enabled services, including Extract, Link, and Scribe.
