Do you spend too much time searching for market data? Do you believe there has to be a better way? You are not alone. That is what prompted T4 co-founder and CEO Maks Khurginit to build a centralized market data platform himself. Tech Crunch brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “T4 wants to transform market research data with a combination of AI and humans.

What he created with the help of CTO Yev Spektor was built as an industry classification system, a taxonomy, that organizes markets by industries and sub-industries. Using search and aggregation tools powered by artificial intelligence (AI), it searches the web looking for information sources that match their taxonomy labels.

The founders realized that the AI would only take them so far. So they built a second part to provide a way for human indexers to fill in those missing parts to offer as comprehensive a list of sources as possible. The perfect blend of autoindexing and human-assisted indexing to make content findable. Solid indexing is supported by ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate those taxonomies.
