Providing actionable data to leading research institutions and universities

How web scraping and web automation are redefining research and education

Machine learning

Generate large-scale datasets from the web with defined variables for the training of your artificial intelligence models. Use the vast amount of publicly available data on the web to propel your research.

Document processing

Process and analyze large amounts of “natural language data” such as reviews, images, or location data. Collect this data in your preferred format and use it to test your hypothesis.

Market research

Collect data from global news sources and websites of your choice to track public sentiment, identify relationships, spot fake news, and gather up-to-date intelligence.

Web automation

Automate your web workflows and any other work you usually do on the web manually. Let robots do the repetitive work of filling out online forms or copy-pasting data. Send data for your research to other tools you use via ready-made integrations or APIs.
