What is HASE?

Data science horizon scanning

HASE is a data science-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)  horizon scanning solution, enabling the analysis of data from academic papers, patents, venture capital funding and the wider internet. Using data mining techniques, early signs of emerging trends can be identified in specific areas of STEM, enabling organisations to mitigate potential threats and take advantage of new opportunities.

Many organisations are interested in gaining a better understanding of developments that may disrupt their current operations, business models and workforce skills. Experts are often used to trawl media and scientific literature, but this process is manual, expensive and time consuming. HASE has been developed to provide a holistic, evidence-based approach to investigating future developments in an automated and efficient way, offering outstanding value.

Key benefits

Millions of sources
HASE uses a large selection of peer-reviewed scientific journal articles, patent applications, venture capital funding and other online search engines to identify emerging research areas and STEM developments. We continually identify and assess new data sources to ensure we always use the best data.

Multiple statistical assessments

The solution is able to perform a number of statistic assessments, including the semantic relationship between technology areas, the number of new papers/patents in particular areas, the amount of venture capital funding we invested in an area and changes in sentiment over time to the developments of interest.

Monitoring of trends and start-ups
The solution is capable of identifying venture capital funding trends, start-ups, key researchers and organisations, and global funding trends associated with a particular STEM trend.

On demand insights
HASE can target precise STEM subjects, and can even identify trending topics automatically, to provide you with key insights and understanding when you need it. Outputs can be varied -  from simple data and charts, to full written reports, interactive content, videos, and expert briefings.
