At Giant Oak, we see data differently. We look behind the numbers to see individuals and communities. We seek to observe and describe the world; and we take advantage of data generation, storage, aggregation, and visualization technologies. We apply social science to big data environments to identify illicit actions, actors and networks. Our goal is to do our part to make the world a better, freer, and more secure place.
