Order of Magnitude Shifts
Location: Westside Ballroom

As the world of data expands, the challenge of understanding it expands as well. Narrative Science is addressing this challenge with a software platform that uses data to drive the generation of compelling narratives that tell the stories contained within it. The technology tells the stories that are hidden in the numbers.
