At Sense Street we are developing natural language understanding systems for capital markets. Our premise is simple: markets are conversations, and we aim to help investment banks and asset managers have better more efficient conversations. Through our partnerships with global banks, we have access to datasets that have not been made available in the past. This allows us to create language models uniquely suited to capital markets while advancing the state-of-the-art.  We are a venture backed company founded by professionals with experience spanning machine learning, trading, and quantitative research.
