Waters Rankings 2021: Best AI technology provider—S&P Global Market Intelligence

Product: Kensho Solutions via the S&P Global Marketplace

“Kensho Solutions via the S&P Global Marketplace unlocks valuable—but currently unusable—data by utilizing machine learning and artificial intelligence to turn audio into machine-readable textual data along with helping to link discrete content to our core datasets already used in their processes. The breadth and depth of S&P Global data to train the models combined with Kensho’s elite engineering talent, helps our clients unlock additional value within their workflows and reduces the time necessary to create insights from their data.”  
Teddy Kahn, head of commercialization of Kensho’s AI/ML Solutions, S&P Global Market Intelligence


S&P Global’s 2018 acquisition of Kensho for $550 million appears to be paying off as the former has been able to add the latter’s substantial artificial intelligence (AI) expertise into its own product offering. It would not be a surprise to see S&P Global regularly in this category. 


Previously only used for S&P Global’s data management practices, the company extended Kensho’s AI and ML tools to the S&P Global Marketplace to clients across various sectors. This has made it easier for clients to solve their big data challenges pertaining to data linking and turning financial audio files into easy-to-use text. 

In the last year, the company launched Kensho Link, allowing clients to link their data to more than 21 million entities using more than 10 machine learning models along with Kensho Scribe to enable the transcription of financial audio files into both human and machine-readable text by leveraging sophisticated deep learning models. 

Additionally, Kensho Scribe has been leveraged internally to provide transcripts of over 35,000 earnings calls, management presentations, and acquisition announcements a year, which feed into a variety of S&P Global downstream products and services.


Over the next year, S&P Global will improve its existing Kensho solutions with the goal of making them available via additional channels, such as Snowflake’s Cloud Data Platform. 

The unit will also roll out other machine learning solutions such as Kensho NERD on Machine Readable Transcripts and Kensho Classify to identify entities tagged within transcripts as well as identify topics across a corpus of documents for deeper analysis of textual data.
