Ripjar in the News
“… There will be no going back now – the secret is out there”
” Ripjar uses deep learning networks and natural language processing to analyze a company’s internal data along with data from social media, news feeds and web pages. …”
” The Ripjar product set allows to monitor, analyse and explore blended datasets in a coherent manner.”
The head of MI5 told us this week that the terrorist threat is at its highest level since 9/11. Our security correspondent, Gordon Corera, has been hearing about one British company – founded by people with a background in government and intelligence – to see what its AI technology can do.
Take the case of Ripjar, one of the companies housed at CyLon. Its chief executive, Tom Griffin, previously worked for GCHQ; the four other co-founders worked in the defense sector before founding Ripjar. The company uses proprietary natural language processing, deep learning algorithms and visualization to monitor reams of data — including social media — to give clients real-time actionable information about everything from brand affinity to cyber threats.”
…Already SETsquared’s Open Innovation programme, funded by the IPO, has seen success. Ripjar, part of SETsquared’s incubation programme, has had its advanced social media analysis software used by a large banking corporate as a direct result of the programme.
Tom Griffin, CEO of Ripjar, said: “The Open Innovation Programme enabled Ripjar to form a close relationship with a global institution, which would otherwise have not been possible.”
…Despite only selecting six teams, CyLon’s extra office space is not going begging — with two established security companies, Ripjar and SQR Systems, being invited and choosing to base themselves in the West London co-working space, alongside the selected entrepreneurs.”
…Since the launch of the FinTech Innovation Lab London, the 14 companies that have passed through the program have raised more than $35 million in new investment, signed nearly 50 contracts to do business with banks and increased revenues by 170 percent. The 2015 Lab participants are: Atsora, Cytora, Duco, Pontus Networks, Ripjar, Torusware, and xWare42.”
Not least among them at the launch was Ripjar, which used Apple TV to demonstrate the power of its software to interrogate the worldwide web and social media for patterns of behaviour, key influences, conversations and locations.”
…Those companies involved were: RepKnight, Digital Shadows, DarkTrace, Cambridge Intelligence, Deep-Secure, Ripjar, Garrison Technology, Panaseer, Titania, Certivox, Surevine and Cyblytic.
…Financial institutions supporting FinTech Innovation Lab London include Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, Lloyds Banking Group, Morgan Stanley, RBS and UBS. This year, Intesa Sanpaolo, Nationwide and Santander have also joined in support of the Lab.”
