The Cog Tree, LLC Mission
We want to build efficient, effective, and amazing software.
At Cog Tree, we value...
action over experience;
innovation over tradition;
results over potential;
simplicity over intricacy; and
openness over restraint.
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
Our product allows PR personnel, political consultants, and other professionals to understand news coverage using quantitative techniques. We index news articles, apply natural language processing to parse them for deeper understanding, and then assign scores for things like sentiment, frequency, and co-occurrence. We call these "News Metrics": a way to quantitatively measure a company or person's performance in the news. With our tool, users will spend less time reading the news, and more time reacting to it.
Cog Tree is an early-stage, NYC-based technology company, founded in 2008.
Life at Cog Tree, LLC
