Black Swan Data is a consumer and trend intelligence company that harnesses the power of the world’s largest focus group: the internet, to identify, decode and predict consumer behaviour.

Using Natural Language Processing and AI our technology continually ingests millions of real-time social data conversations to identify which needs, benefits and product trends are most relevant to consumers, and how they are predicted to grow in the future. The analysis is powered by a TPV (Trend Prediction Value) algorithm which has an 89% rated prediction accuracy.

It’s called Social Prediction and it enables companies like PepsiCo, Colgate and P&G to connect trends, identify new opportunities and build future-focussed marketing and innovation strategies.
