A glimpse at a DSRS project

We have had quite a few researchers ask us to help with pulling financial disclosure documents from the SEC and run a combination of text mining and supervised machine learning to detect various phenomena within the disclosures. In one case, we found that this processing looked like it would take weeks to finish, but thanks to our interns, we were able to cut down processing from weeks to hours.
