Bitvore: Text Classification into a Hierarchical Market Taxonomy using Spark NLP

Bitvore White Paper

In recent years traditional factors of financial markets, for instance, growth vs. value, market capitalization, credit rating, stock price volatility, have become less predictive, requiring investors to explore new data sources such as news, images, social networks content etc. Most of this content is unstructured and needs to be first converted into structured data to be used for analysis. As an alternative to creating these systems themselves, financial firms are turning towards companies that specialize in this field. Bitvore platform is set up to handle the task of systematical scraping the data from the different sources. After, this data getting to link to the key factors and topics with semantic intelligence, that can be delivered for use in financial trading algorithms.
The goal of the current project is to build an instrument, which classifies the companies into different market segments in which they operate.
