Using Open Data to Generate Personalized Stories

Speaker

Narrative Science transforms data into stories and insight. The project started as an experiment at Northwestern University's schools of Journalism and Engineering. The prototype developed at the Intelligent Information Lab automated the process of sports reporting. We have since applied this process to dozens of topics using public and private data. The talk will explore the implications of transforming complicated data into understandable textual summaries. Examples will be demonstrated spanning economic, polticial and sports data.
