Attorneys and digital forensic investigators face a seemingly insurmountable problem—millions of documents and a looming deadline. Brainspace set out to give small teams the power to connect the dots, find the needles in haystacks, and draw confident conclusions when faced with massive (and ever-growing) unstructured data sets.
Designing interactive visualizations that are simple, elegant and intelligent, Vega took a very complex problem—how to analyze and visualize millions of documents—and synthesized the process into an intuitive, interconnected experience. The result is a powerful suite of tools that helps ten people operate with the force of a thousand.
Brainspace makes breakthrough machine-learning software that automatically analyzes massive amounts of unstructured data, recognizing not just words and phrases, but also their context and meaning—which enables the platform to make meaningful connections. It dramatically accelerates review and allows analysts to understand large volumes of data faster than ever before. What would historically require an entire team months or years of manual review, Brainspace can accomplish in days or weeks.
Vega partnered with Brainspace to surface this incredible technical power in an elegant and intuitive user experience. The result is a product that empowers people to search broader and faster, transforming unstructured data into fact-based insights, making sure that all relevant data can be seen, explored and rendered actionable. Pairing this powerful core technology with best-in-class design gives subject matter experts superhuman capabilities.
Brainspace offers state-of-the-art communication analysis, but like all other aspects of large, unstructured data sets, they faced challenges with both usability and performance. Previous versions of Brainspace's communication analysis often confused users, partly because the visualization was limited to 100 nodes and performed poorly. By rethinking the design and building an all-new visualization in WebGL, Vega improved performance by over 100x. Communication Analysis is now one of Brainspace's most valuable and most-used features in digital investigations.
We are continuing to work with Brainspace to evolve and improve how to visualize and interact with these large communication data sets. Exciting and challenging opportunities lie ahead as Brainspace moves beyond documents and email to social media, scholarly publications and citations, and enterprise chat analysis.
From a UX point of view, they’re the best I’ve ever worked with in my 30-year career. I’m impressed with their understanding of workflows and how users want to interact with the product.
