Executive Opinion

Daniel Freeman of Dorilton Ventures said, "Industrialized disinformation is the scourge of the digital world. Until now, bad actors have operated with impunity from behind a cloak of confusion to distort reality for companies and private citizens alike. Dorilton Ventures is very proud to partner with Blackbird.AI to build a powerful platform that tackles this problem algorithmically and at internet speed and scale. This is a disruptive and transformative business that will protect organizations' media intelligence, reputation and, ultimately, their value. We look forward to sharing what promises to be a very successful journey with the Blackbird.AI team."

Dr. Naushad UzZaman, CTO and co-founder of Blackbird.AI, said, "Our system deconstructs the massive flow of information and exposes the underlying dynamics through a combination of signals related to narratives, networks, and how they are being influenced by manipulation and deception. We combine novel adaptive AI with practical engineering that allows us to operate at internet scale to provide interpretable quantitative insights that help our clients understand what matters and what doesn't."
