What Data Tells Us

Dataminr uses AI to detect when major events are happening, long before the first news reports emerge. How is this possible? Venrock’s Nick Beim chats with Dataminr’s founder and CEO Ted Bailey to discuss the inspiration for the company’s founding in 2009 and the non-obvious insights on which it was based. They discuss Dataminr’s unique technology and how the company helps clients mitigate and respond to potential crises more effectively, including the ongoing pandemic. They also discuss how the Dataminr workforce is responding to all-remote work and how Bailey has grown as a leader since founding the company.
