About Narrative Science

Narrative Science is the leader in Advanced NLG for the enterprise. Its Quill™ platform, an intelligent system, analyzes data from disparate sources, understands what is interesting and important, then automatically generates perfectly written narratives to convey the right meaning from the data for any intended audience, at machine scale.

Quill™ excels where data visualizations fall short: it identifies and conveys relevant information in conversational language that people can immediately comprehend, trust, and act on. Narrative Science’s tools are powering massive scale data-reliant organizations like USAA, MasterCard, Credit Suisse, as well as elements in the U.S. intelligence community; providing critical data-driven insights to increase efficiency, freeing up employees to spend less time wading through data and take decisive action.
