with Stuart Frankel of Narrative Science
Storytelling is one of our oldest pastimes and the easiest method to retain information. Historically, we have digested stories through narrative format, but with the explosion of data, BI tools, and dashboard narratives have been replaced by numbers – until now. This week we sit with Stuart Frankel, Co-Founder and CEO of Narrative Science, to understand how AI is being used to create narratives out of numerical data.
