Company Summary

After a year of research and millions of experiments, Contextuall has developed a technology that automatically evaluates the predictability of certain problems. Our clients save time and money by subscribing to predictive algorithms built on signal as opposed to random statistical noise. No complicated software required - we host all data and algorithms. Predictions are sent to the client either as an email report or online dashboard.
