Transforming the way we understand cities

Topos is using Artificial Intelligence to uncover the nuanced underpinnings of urban culture, transforming our understanding of cities, neighborhoods, businesses, and the interaction between people and place. Follow our progress by subscribing to our newsletter.


We use advanced AI techniques to transform heterogeneous data from hundreds of sources, producing a holistic understanding of location that encompasses factors ranging from nightlife vibrancy, to how urban an area feels, to likelihood of different business types to thrive.

Further, we’re able to quantify similarities between locations within a given city, or across geographies of any distance, enabling us to answer questions such as “What is the Williamsburg of Kansas City?”. Check out our blog to get a sense of how we’re transforming the way we understand place.
