What makes data rich? Quantity, Quality, Variety. Infer uses all three to predict winners. We look at hundreds of data points from lots of different sources. The customer’s data, data we’ve acquired through partnerships, and signals we get from crawling the web. As an example, we might have several sources to understand company size or employee count. We can look at the different signals, their sources, and Infer which one is the best.
