We started Narrative Science in order to solve a big problem—giving people a fast and simple way to understand data. While companies have invested billions sourcing and aggregating data, spreadsheets and dashboards as mechanisms to understand data simply aren’t cutting it. People want the stories the data supports—about their operations, about their business, about their life. And, what better way to tell stories than through language?
That’s why we are focused on creating exceptional software, starting with our Artificial Intelligence platform, Quill, that transforms data into meaningful and insightful narratives people can simply read. Quill enables organizations to spend less time crunching numbers and more time providing their employees and customers with actionable information that, ultimately, makes them smarter.
Hear our Chief Scientist, Kris Hammond, explain the ways stories are changing in the 21st century. Never in modern human history have companies and individuals had more numbers, statistics, and metrics at their disposal. As Kris explains in this film, the great challenge in the Big Data era is understanding the stories those numbers tell and, just as important, connecting the right people with the right stories.
Our technology generates data-driven narratives that explain, amplify and illuminate significant events and outcomes. Our mission is to enhance human productivity and make people smarter.
