Gematria Technologies

From qualitative information to quantitative insights
We leverage the latest breakthroughs in AI Text Analytics, as recent as Fall 2020, to build software solutions enhancing capabilities of hedge funds.

Product Development

Untapped alpha from alternative text data

Unstructured web text data has grown 50-fold since 2010 yet less than 1% of it is currently analyzed. This data overflow introduces new risks - and opportunities - for investors: missing a single datapoint can cause dramatic losses. Why now? 2020 has seen tremendous progress in AI text analytics. We're here to take these advances from the research lab to the industry. From news to sub-Reddits, blogposts, social medias and company filings.

Gematria Technologies introduces "controversy indices" aiming to track the evolution over time of the amount of disagreement about diverse topics between various sources, from news to forums.

About Us

Gary Bécigneul, PhD

Gary is a 26-year-old, ex-MIT researcher in AI/NLP and did his PhD in the field at ETH Zürich, supervised by Prof. Thomas Hofmann, ex-head of Engineering at Google Zürich. He obtained his Master in Mathematics from Cambridge University at age 21. In 2015, he received the Junior Fermat Prize awarded every two years in France for a contribution to mathematics while in undergraduate studies. His AI research is already cited by hundreds of academic papers. In his free time, he participates in kickboxing tournaments.

Louis Abraham

Louis is a 22-year-old computer scientist holding Master’s degrees from ETH Zürich and École polytechnique. He finished high school at 15, being the youngest laureate of the Concours général in Mathematics, and at 17 became the youngest to enter École polytechnique. His team won the ACM ICPC SWERC 2019, the most prestigious programming contest between European universities. He previously worked as a quant at BNP Paribas London, conducted research in deep learning at ENS Ulm and economics at PSE and Bank of France. In his free time, he is a classical concert pianist and studies orchestral conducting.

Gary & Louis met each other in cryptography classes at ETH Zürich, and co-authored AI research together with Alex Smola (director for machine learning at Amazon Web Services) and Bernhard Schölkopf (director of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems). They are both driven by fierce competition and their skills are highly complementary.
