After our previous post about the groundbreaking work that data reporters at RADAR AI and BBC News Labs are doing to bring attention, context, accuracy, and timeliness to hyperlocal news stories, Gary Rogers, RADAR AI’s CEO, gave us a nice shout out on LinkedIn. Gary called Arria NLG Studio “a great tool in [RADAR AI’s] data-driven workflow
We’ve written about how Natural Language Generation can eliminate the bottleneck of manual, one-at-a-time analysis within business environments, producing data-driven insights that otherwise would remain fossilized in spreadsheets on the network drive. It is also worth noting that the same principles apply to the world of news reporting
Question: “Where does NLG sit in the technology stack?”
Answer: “As the push toward digital transformations gains momentum, maintaining Natural Language Generation (NLG) as a separate layer of the technology stack is ever more critical for ensuring the democratization of data literacy.
Really interesting article in CIO Dive yesterday, “3 trends shaping the business intelligence market,” in which author Roberto Torres explores the rapidly evolving expectations for BI. Reading through it, we notice several scenarios where Arria NLG Studio for BI is already helping enterprises meet those expectations.
At the Arria booth during VOICE Summit 2019, Tim Daniels and his knowledgeable Arria sales colleagues often found themselves explaining to our visitors the differences between NLG and other forms of natural language technologies. Some who dropped by had heard of NLP, for example, but not NLG.
Another productive day for the fluorescent orange shirts of Team Arria, as our Senior Vice President of Customer and Partner Success, Cathy Herbert, led a breakout session on the Future of Natural Language Generation. Cathy took the stage at the spacious Jim Wise Theater in Kupfrian Hall with Tyler Merritt from Arria’s partner firm, FaceMe
I write this dispatch while sitting with Arria teammates outside of the crowded meeting space where Arria’s COO, Jay DeWalt, and Chief Scientist, Ehud Reiter, are unveiling the breakthrough use of Amazon’s Alexa as a presentation layer over a Tableau dashboard integrated with Arria's NLG technology. We’re happy to listen through the open door, giving up our seats to VOICE Summit attendees
It’s been said that RPA takes the robot out of the human. Now it’s time for NLG to give the power of natural human language to RPA.
According to Gartner, “by 2022, 85 percent of large and very large organizations will have deployed some form of RPA.” And no wonder: RPA can transfer data into and between systems faster than humanly possible, and with zero human error.
We enjoyed Daniel Newman’s recent contribution to Forbes, “Top 10 Digital Transformation Trends For 2020.” It’s a great read all around, but we are particularly in agreement about four of the trends Mr. Newman identifies as likely to catch fire in 2020, because in our world of Natural Language Generation we already see temperatures rising rapidly
