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).
“Computers have become integrated with everyday lives, especially with the advent of mobile and multi-device technology, and finally know more about many of the things society cares about,” said Hammond. “Massive interconnections have created huge amounts of data that are exponentially growing as companies and organizations meter and monitor every transaction and every interaction. To better understand this data and the world around them, organizations can now use machines to turn this data into useful, plain-English narratives that can help people make smart decisions and reach accurate conclusions.”
Hammond will demonstrate how Narrative Science’s Quill™, an Artificial Intelligence engine that understands data and uses it to craft narratives, is being used by leading enterprises in multiple industries to turn mountains of data into actionable insight that supports strategic business goals and objectives.
In addition to being Narrative Science’s Chief Scientist, Hammond is a professor of Computer Science and Journalism at Northwestern University. Prior to joining the faculty at Northwestern, Kris founded the University of Chicago’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. His research has been primarily focused on AI, machine-generated content and context-driven information systems. Kris currently sits on a United Nations policy committee run by the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR). He received his Ph.D. from Yale.
