Decoding AI

13th April 2017

We live in the age of automation. From direct debits on our monthly bills to heating that comes on when it drops to a certain temperature, we’re increasingly entrusting repetitive, regular jobs to smart systems that let us get on with the things we’re good at.

And now, the introduction of Artificial Intelligence into business processes is upon us. This will ultimately make businesses more streamlined, efficient and profitable. If you’re not at least evaluating what AI can do for your business right now, then you’re falling behind the competition.

Before we go any further, let’s de-mystify the tech speak. ‘AI’ is Artificial Intelligence and ‘NLG’ stands for Natural Language Generation. In short, it’s technology that will evaluate your data and return a written report back to you. Now take a second to think about how long you took to prepare for your last meeting; where you had to explain, what was going on and present your findings from the data available to you. Wouldn’t it be great if you could automate that part of your business life too?

At Ometis, we make all of that possible. Along with Qlik, we allow you to search and explore large amounts of your data with ease. Help you create smart visualisations, share visual analytics on any device and embed your analytics in web and enterprise apps. Narratives for Qlik adds even greater insights to your data.

If you have already invested in Qlik Sense Enterprise, or are thinking about what data analytics systems will serve you right in the short, medium and long term, then you should certainly be looking at Narratives for Qlik. It can save you time, provide enhanced insights and present you and your end users with a written report in a language that is easy to understand.

This is all to do with structuring well-formed sentences, taking into account grammatical structures and company terminology. This is done programmatically based upon the data that Narratives is presented with. As Narratives for Qlik seamlessly integrates with Qlik Sense Enterprise, it is logical that the written report it creates relates to a specific chart on a dashboard.

When users make their selections through the intuitive Qlik Sense Interface, the data in a given chart is reduced, focussing in on just a subset of data that relates to the particular selection made. As this happens, Narratives for Qlik recalibrates all the sentences based upon the new data set that is provided.

This takes things a lot further than any business analyst could manage in a reasonable time frame. What you’ll get out of the box is a written report, created in seconds on any permutation you can think of on your data. Now that’s got to be worth considering…
