Cognovi Labs, the leading provider of AI-extracted consumer emotions and behavioral insights, and Lucena Research, a leader in predictive analytics for the financial markets, announced today that they have partnered to bring new signal-based data offerings to the financial markets.

The announcement follows Cognovi’s recent win as one of the best alternative data providers for investment managers at the Battle of the Quants competition. Colin Butler, Cognovi’s Global Revenue Officer, accepted the award at the Big Data Awards Gala in New York on May 21st.

“Cognovi Labs’ proprietary blend of Artificial Intelligence and Behavioral Psychology quantifies how people make decisions and what they will do next, at scale and in real time. Whether you are a fundamental analyst, discretionary trader or quantitative portfolio manager, Cognovi’s Emotion AI adds a new and unique source of alpha to your investment process. By quantifying consumer purchasing intent, Cognovi provides a powerful way for our clients to predict sales growth and product performance like never before,” said Cognovi’s Co-founder and CEO, Beni Gradwohl, Ph.D.

”We are thrilled to welcome Cognovi Labs into our selective data provider partners and provide the buy-side with further empirical evidence of their data’s predictive power. I am excited to note that our research uncovered both long and short signals that can be used effectively for both KPI forecasting and / or algorithmic trading strategies. Moreover, users can now consume Lucena’s Smart Data Feed of trend signals, based on Cognovi’s behavioral data,” said Erez Katz, Co-founder and CEO of Lucena Research.

“While the use of alternative data is still in its infancy, we see a significant opportunity for Cognovi’s Emotion AI to be integrated across a wide spectrum of investment processes. At the same time, it is a powerful new tool for corporations, ad agencies and political organizations,” said Butler.

Lucena’s Data Analytics Suite hosts a collection of carefully vetted elite datasets ready for consumption by a variety of investment professionals. Users can efficiently automate the assessment and deployment of big data with comprehensive assessment reports and empirically validated data signals historically and perpetually into the future. 

Cognovi Labs’ signals have been validated by Lucena’s AI platform and are now available for assessment and consumption through derived offerings such as Smart Data Feeds, or Model Portfolios. Cognovi Labs’ underlying emotion and behavioral data is available directly from Cognovi Labs.
