About the Webinar
Need more than visualization?
Generate custom narrative docs from data today.
Technology for natural language generation (NLG) has advanced from the production of restricted-domain question-answering and simulation systems to the delivery of general purpose data- or model-driven narratives that are virtually indistinguishable from human-generated correspondence.
From sports to stock reports, you’ve probably read a machine-generated report in the past year without realizing that the “author” was a machine.
Participants in this webinar will learn how modern approaches have progressed beyond pattern matching and table-driven text selection to algorithms that consider context and tone. We will also present examples of commercially available NLG APIs to help participants experiment with NLG in their own applications right away.
