Banjo ingests thousands of live public data sources per second, overlays our state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence, and has patented technology to understand the degree of truthfulness of the information, all in Live Time. The result is a new derivative of data that changes the way the world responds. Today, Banjo is powering some of the largest companies, changing the way millions of people get information.
