One of the biggest challenges in big data analytics is communicating insights back to users. Many organizations rely on dashboards and visualization tools to display the analytic results. Now a new crop of tools is using big data to generate written narratives that explain to users what’s happening in plain English.
Narrative Science, the leader in automated narrative generation for the enterprise, today announced that NHS Choices, the official website of the National Health Service and managed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre, has chosen the Quill™ Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform to provide critical information to the general public via its website.
Google Analytics can only do so much for you. Plus, not everyone can actually read through the reams of data to find out what’s important for your business.
Quill Engage connects with you Google Analytics account, runs weekly or monthly reports, and actually helps you understand how your website (or other web properties like Landing pages or blogs) are performing, in plain English.
Quill Engage is a free tool that connects with your Google Analytics account and emails you a weekly summary of your data. It tells you about your site’s traffic growth or decline, where your traffic came from the previous week, which post got the most traffic and much more.
Quill from Narrative Science reduces days or weeks of human being work to seconds or nothing. A few large financial services and rating agencies are using Narrative Science technology already.
The program behind the content is called Quill, an Artificial Intelligence platform that takes insights from data and transforms its findings into natural language. A recent report on Narrative Science's blog used Quill for a helpful piece during the summer: Which Chicago beach is the cleanest?
Narrative Science, the leader in Narrative Analytics, today announced Narrative Science co-founder and Chief Scientist Kris Hammond, Ph.D., will present “The Future of Communications: Human Insight at Machine Scale” during the Cognitive Computing Forum at the Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose, Calif. The forum was designed to help attendees understand the new world of Cognitive Analytics, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reasoning and next generation Artificial Intelligence (AI).
"We can confidently predict that within the next five years CMOs will be spending a proportion of their budget on technology that does just that, be it bots or technology like Narrative Science where they are automating content through specific channels. Literally taking big data, turning it into content and a marketing person doesn’t even put their finger on it.”
Earlier this week we reported on Narrative Science, an artificial intelligence company whose product, Quill, can turn tables of data into a natural language story that you can read as if it were a newspaper article.
The benefit here is that the software near-instantaneously renders numerical data as much more digestible units of understanding — words — without requiring any human supervision.
