Kensho Technologies

Kensho combines natural language search queries, graphical user interfaces, and secure cloud computing to create a new class of analytics tools for investment professionals. Addressing the three biggest challenges surrounding investment analysis on Wall Street today—speed, scale, and automation—Kensho's intelligent computer systems are capable of answering complex financial questions posed in plain English. Founded in the spring of 2013 out of MIT and Harvard, Kensho's senior team members come from veteran positions at Google, Apple, and the United States Federal Reserve. They are a diverse and spirited group of engineers, scientists, and financial professionals who are accomplished analytical thinkers and passionate problem solvers. Together, their multi-talented team includes PhD physicists, a three time International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) world champion, PhD economists, internationally competitive chess players, the author of Quantitative Finance for Physicists, a member of the original Apple iPhone engineering team, and one of the youngest ever entrants to Harvard College (age 15). They are proud of individual accomplishments, as well as the collaborative environment they've built, and what they're capable of as a team.
