Expat Inc., a machine learning technology provider, announced the launch of Sensei View to its Market Sensei platform, a technology that uses intelligent computer vision to quickly scan and analyze financial news articles and present the details dynamically.

The Sensei View capability utilizes computer vision that can acquire, process and understand digital images and transform them into usable information. This technology can accurately determine which companies are covered in the news article and identify vital financial metrics and key points. Data within Sensei View is displayed in real time, as the solution offers current market values of the various financial contained in the news segment, like stock prices or the value of market indices.

Machine learning capabilities of the Sensei View allow it to develop more refined predictions based on the accuracy rates of various authors and news publishers. The system can effectively determine, over time, how accurate a given author is in predicting stock movement, which provides users with guidelines on which authors and publishers they should be following for their stock portfolio research.

Sensei View will be used by investors within Market Sensei. This technology allows Expat to offer a stock price movement prediction that is displayed within Sensei View alongside the predictions offered in any given article about the same stock.

Augmented reality overlays in Sensei View appear in the form of the shapes, text and visual content, which is drawn over the camera feed that serves to highlight the key points in the article. This function allows investors to digest a lot of information and focus their attention on the companies and news events that can best correspond to their individual investing strategy.

The Market Sensei solution has integrated accountability with every stock covered by the technology featuring a graph of the prediction accuracy for that stock within the past nine days. Market Sensei and Sensei View are available for the limited-trial versions with two monthly fee tiers — a premium version that features S&P 500 stocks and a deluxe version that has the full computational power of the platform.
