An Insider's view of New Knowledge

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is genuine and welcoming. Too many times tech companies try to contrive their culture, and tell people how they need to act. This couldn't be more different from New Knowledge. It's an environment that celebrates individuality, and welcomes new ideas.

Chelsey

Demand Generation Marketing Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

New Knowledge’s research division, NK Labs, is responsible for driving discoveries in emerging artificial intelligence and machine learning research through open-source DARPA programs — Data-Driven Discovery of Models (D3M) and Active Social Engineering Defense (ASED) — which we use internally to build tools to fight disinformation online.

Numa

Machine Learning Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I have learned how to incorporate feedback from users to make models and statistics to answer multifaceted questions about communities on social media. I have also had the chance build APIs around my models in order to make them more accessible to users.

Becky

Head of Data Science

What is your vision for the company?

To bring authenticity to the Internet. Most people believe the Internet is a cocktail party at scale. In reality, the conversation online is driven by hyperactive mobs, or Internet Factions as we call them, that exploit platform dynamics to manipulate the narrative.

Jonathon

CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

A slightly unhealthy obsession with a futuristic cat that guides how we proactively pounce on this problem. Integrity, obsessive pursuit, nerdiness, collaboration, accountability, and teamwork are the DNA of our company. We are relentless in our pursuit, and IONCAT leads the charge.

Ryan

COO
