Among Marvin’s unique abilities is that he autonomously can identify trends and patterns in huge amounts of data, such as social and news media, business reports, patents and abstracts. That means that the researcher do not need to have hypotheses about what to search for, Marvin finds the most relevant patterns and trends without pre-assumptions. Another feature is that Marvin is able to work in any language, we have already tried his abilities in more than 15 languages, and he learns a language in the same way as humans do, although he does not need to practice very long to start working.
