Using our unique, patented set of technologies and tools, our Science and Innovation team creates and applies new, rigorous analytical methods to answer difficult questions about online conversations.
Social Network Maps

Disinformation & Cyber Security
Graphika detects strategic influence campaigns online and at scale by analyzing network anomalies and identifying objects propagating through our network maps with a high degree of social contagion that are likely to quickly reach virality.
Deep Analysis AI
Our deep analysis of network relationships yields highly detailed segmentation and works across every language group, geographic region, vertical market, and business priority based on what people do, not just what they say.
