Transforming Data Into Narratives with Quill


We are helping companies operationalize data storytelling with Quill, our advanced natural language generation (NLG) platform. By automatically transforming data into narratives, our artificial intelligence software dramatically reduces the time and energy people spend analyzing, interpreting and explaining data. 

Quill starts by understanding the purpose of your communication, identifying the metrics to meet that purpose, performing the analysis to figure out what is most interesting and important, and pulling in the relevant data. The result is a narrative indistinguishable from what a human would write.

"No, the real value, Hammond says, is not in the scattershot approach of news publishing, where one article is created for a vast audience in the hope that some will find it interesting or useful. Natural language generation and automated narrative creation mean that one dataset can be interpreted in multiple ways, giving each targeted audience segment precisely what they need to know, without any confusing background noise.” — Forbes
