Agency for Mining Open and Web Data

Rapid Intelligence is a bespoke agency for data mining, text mining, analytics and web-based visualisation.

We believe that most customers need data solutions customised to their business problem and internal processes. Tools and data products are great but typically do only half the job, which can soon become none of the job.

Founded by Luke Metcalfe in 2003, our team combined has many a lifetime of experience in data projects. Our sites attract millions of users.

Areas of Expertise

Our specialised expertise in the fields of computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, and evolving algorithms ensures that our sites are growing, vibrant, and fed by a constant stream of web data.

We take sophisticated machine learning technologies of a type normally only used by large corporate entities and make them available to internet users generally.

The highly acclaimed results range from the intelligent and authoritative to the quirky and amusing. NationMaster, our best-known site, has been featured in The New York Times, CNN and the BBC and is recommended by the Harvard Business School and the American Library Association. Our search engine/encyclopedia hybrid FactBites has already attracted favourable comment in BusinessWeek and SearchEngineJournal, and is rapidly gaining popularity as a respected alternative to Google for encyclopedia-style searches.
