About Us

Awesome technology, great people, and endless startup stereotypes.

We've built an incredible team.

Created in late 2016 by Jackson Moses and Matthew Slipper, Spectrum has its roots in fake news identification, classification, and attribution. We’ve since developed a comprehensive intelligent moderation platform, powered by advanced machine learning algorithms, to provide brands, businesses, blogs, and online communities with effective tools to help manage user-generated content at scale.
