We're the best in the world at analyzing social networks: how they form, how they evolve, how they are manipulated

Graphika in Action

Using our unique, patented set of technologies and tools, our Science and Innovation team creates and applies new, rigorous analytical methods to answer difficult questions about online conversations.

Social Network Maps

We use our revolutionary patented technology to map, visualize, and measure social media as a network of actors, so you can discover what you don’t know — helping you achieve, unlock, and activate unknown potential.

Disinformation & Cyber Security

Graphika detects strategic influence campaigns online and at scale by analyzing network anomalies and identifying objects propagating through our network maps with a high degree of social contagion that are likely to quickly reach virality.

Deep Analysis AI

Our deep analysis of network relationships yields highly detailed segmentation and works across every language group, geographic region, vertical market, and business priority based on what people do, not just what they say.

Always Innovating with the Brightest Minds

Graphika is at the forefront of research into advanced computational social science and regularly participates in innovative efforts alongside academic institutions, non-profits and think tanks.

Research and Innovation Led

We’re obsessed with R&D. We have a lab that constantly pushes the needle of network science. We work with the best and brightest minds in the country, with partners like Harvard, Oxford, and DARPA.

Human Rights and Digital Rights

A lot of our work is motivated by our belief that the Internet should be free and open, and by our desire to protect citizens from censorship and oppression. We work with NGOs like Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and others who come to us for expertise and help.
