At Primer, we build intelligent machines to help analysts, scientists, and other knowledge workers consume written information hyper-efficiently and focus their human intelligence on the most critical world problems to empower our customers by vastly reducing the cost of curiosity.
Primer is at the forefront of the natural language processing revolution. Our artificial intelligence platform can read millions of documents per hour, extracting information and updating a knowledge graph of billions of entities. It is capable of answering natural language questions and generating the first draft of natural language analytical reports in seconds.
Our customers include some of the world’s largest corporations, financial institutions, and government agencies. You can learn more about Primer's technology and the problems we solve here, on our blog.
