FiscalNote Launches StressLens, a Novel AI Agent to Provide Customers With New Tools to Decode the Human Element in Risk

Secures Multi-Billion Dollar Quantitative Asset Management Firm as First StressLens Customer

StressLens Equips Users with a Pioneering, Innovative New AI Tool to Help Decode the Human Element in Mission-Critical Calls, Speeches, Testimony, and Remarks Given by Policymakers, CEOs, Regulators, and Other Key Global Decision Makers

FiscalNote Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: NOTE) (“FiscalNote”), a leading AI-driven enterprise SaaS technology provider of global policy and market intelligence, today announced the launch of StressLens, a groundbreaking innovation that equips customers with the real-time ability to quantify the behavioral impact of leading decision makers and influencers across the financial, regulatory, and government domains.

The Company also announced it has secured its first, anchor customer of StressLens - a leading multi-billion dollar quantitative asset management firm.

“StressLens is a game-changing AI agent that redefines the landscape of human behavioral insights,” said Josh Resnik, President and Chief Operating Officer, FiscalNote. “In today’s market, finding new opportunities can be challenging when everyone is looking at the same ‘alternative’ data. StressLens offers novel insights based on FiscalNote’s trove of data sources, uncovering untapped potential by using AI-powered audio and video ‘fingerprinting’ to examine more than what was said by the world’s leading influencers, but how they said it. This new AI Agent will empower investors, risk managers, government relations executives, and others with a critical ‘edge’ in their decision-making process, and will keep our customers one step ahead in a competitive financial and risk management environment. It’s an exciting new way of seeing, understanding, and navigating a volatile investment, business, policymaking, legal and regulatory system.”

The launch of the patent-pending StressLens extends the Company’s long-standing AI leadership by bringing a new and unique approach to financial markets, business analysis, and risk management – analyzing remarks by key C-suite executives of public companies, the Chairman and other members of the U.S. Federal Reserve, global policymakers, and leading regulators in the U.S., E.U. and at other global institutions to identify moments of stress that would otherwise be undetectable.

Existing natural language tools only focus on text and therefore lack the ability to decipher the nuanced humanity and distinct individuality of the speech patterns and vocal inflections of key business influencers, including policy makers, regulators, business executives, and other pivotal decision makers. This oversight leaves a gap in understanding the subtle yet significant ways these leaders shape market dynamics and business outcomes through their verbal remarks, earnings calls, testimony, and speeches in the regulatory, policy, and financial ecosystem.

StressLens, a pioneering AI Agent developed to bridge this knowledge gap, goes beyond traditional data analysis by intricately deciphering, decrypting, and decoding the human element behind business and government communications and decisions. It offers a deeper layer and greatly expanded set of unstructured data that enables sharpened insights into the motivations, sentiments, and intentions of those at the helm of business and government. By integrating this human dimension into the calculus of financial investment, business analysis, and risk management strategies, StressLens vastly deepens and expands existing tool sets with a more holistic view of leading global influencers. Humans do this for people they know deeply–using subtle clues. StressLens acts as an AI Copilot by extending this knowledge to influencers outside one’s direct sphere. This enhancement not only augments analytical capabilities, but also empowers customers to make more informed, empathetic, and forward-thinking decisions that both mitigate risk and uncover opportunities in an increasingly complex market environment.

StressLens delivers value to customers through:

  • Advanced AI Technology: Utilizes proprietary AI to benchmark against a speaker’s historical and recent remarks.
  • Deep Analysis: Identifies subtle visual and vocal cues indicating stress, unease, or hidden intentions.
  • Unique Insights: Provides actionable intelligence on potential market-critical events or opportunities based on leadership communication.
  • Real-Time Data Delivery: Compliance-ready insights are integrated directly into users’ research and trading tools shortly after a speech or testimony concludes.
  • Continuous Learning: Enhances speaker profiles with each new piece of data, improving future analyses.
  • Stress Forecasting: Generates predictive risk profiles by mapping latent stress markers across companies and industries.
  • Visual Mapping: Illustrates connections between stressors, aiding in the identification of potential contagion events.
