2019 Startup Elevate Startups - TechXLR8
Auquan's platform, we enable finance companies to find machine learning solutions to their investment problems, without needing an in-house data science team.
How is this done?
- We translate these into math problems internally
- Our data transformer tool masks client’s data, circumventing licensing/data rights issues (ie Bloomberg) and protects proprietary information.
- Solutions are crowdsourced from a global community of 12,000+ data scientists from Google, Microsoft, MIT, Oxford etc.
