About metaLayer

metaLayer takes sophisticated algorithms like sentiment analysis, influence detection, and optical character recognition and distills the use of such technologies into a drag and drop experience. This allows anyone to draw meaningful conclusions from complex datasets instead of relying upon experts or expensive products. Users can then share insights and the compelling visualizations they’ve created either within our community or with their own audience.
