Narrative Science in the NYT

September 12, 2011

Narrative Science was featured in yesterday's NYT business section.  Link to article below.

The article chronicles the company's origins at Northwestern and includes a number of testimonials from our customers, an AI researcher and our lead VC investor.  There's also a bold claim made by our CTO, Kris Hammond:

 

Mr. Hammond cited a media maven’s prediction that a computer program might win a Pulitzer Prize in journalism in 20 years — and he begged to differ.

“In five years,” he says, “a computer program will win a Pulitzer Prize — and I’ll be damned if it’s not our technology.”

 

Update: Steve Lohr posted a follow up on the Bits blog at the NYT this morning: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/12/writing-machines-their-uses-and-meaning/

 

We also collaborated with the Wall Street Journal to produce a memorial for 9/11.  Our software is automatically curating the tweets on this page: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111903285704576561611322288314.html. The WSJ is pulling in the posts we find and rendering them on the page along with photos from Flickr and Instagram.
