Copenhagen, Aug. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Company announcement/Half-year report

The AI tech company Hypefactors presents the financial report figures for first half of 2023. Revenue for the period amounted to DKK 5.417m, compared to DKK 4.528m in H1/2022, corresponding to an increase of 20%. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to DKK 1.253m compared to H1/2022 which showed an EBITDA of DKK -0.198m. Hypefactors reached an annual recurring revenue (ARR) of DKK 11.5m per June 30, 2023, (June 30, 2022: 9.9m) which is an increase over the last twelve months of 16%.

Hypefactors is developing AI-based technology with the vision to be the world’s leading authority on real-time corporate trust and reputation insights. Hypefactors is innovative media intelligence tech developed with artificial intelligence and machine learning for the purpose of making the effect of communication measurable, as well as optimizing workflows through automated and easy-to-use solutions. A combination of unique in-house crawler technology and partnership agreements makes it possible to monitor everything from print, online and broadcast media to review sites and social media platforms. In H1/2023, the technology was improved and refined, making the unique tech assets stronger than ever before. 

Tech innovations
Again in H1-2023, Hypefactors continued to launch major upgrades to its artificial intelligence, increasing the quality of the company’s media insights solution to a level that is unmatched in the industry. Our AI technology stack, called ‘Atlastic.ai’ was improved on several dimensions, including the NOI (Names of Interest, which is our proprietary AI-based named entity recognition (NER)), the reputation-AI, and the ESG-AI (which can categorize media coverage in all languages along 26 environmental, social and governance dimensions to facilitate ESG sustainability reporting and compliance).

Worth mentioning is also the launch of our unique AI solution program for more precise print media processing in media intelligence. It enables Hypefactors to deliver a magnitude larger print coverage than any competitor within media intelligence, and to deliver a superior solution to large enterprises with cross-border media presence. In October 2022, Hypefactors kicked off a 10-months AI development project named 'New Print PDF Processing Program'. The special AI effort was backed by the Innovation Fund Denmark and was finalized on time mid 2023. The AIs developed are uniquely superior for its multilingual and multi-modal qualities: It includes an encoder design also found in modern generative AIs like ChatGPT, and is combined with computer vision algorithms and an automated reasoning engine also found for development of safety-critical systems such as satellites. It will benefit current and new clients. Hypefactors is exploring additional global business and partnership opportunities for this unique AI solution. 

We further boosted the machine learning operations architecture: Originally designed in 2021, first launched in May 2022, upgraded in December 2022 and again in May 2023, it now enables scaling AI enrichments up to 100 billion machine learning operations per day. 

Our AIs encompass all the typical traits and benefits of our DNA: Multilingual for more than 100 languages, accelerated for 24/7 billion-scale operation on the world's media coverage and directly integrated to end-user product features for the benefit of all current and new clients.
