Dispelling the biggest myths of natural language generation

Learn about the most common questions and myths infiltrating the market about NLG.

The process of natural language generation

NLG solutions are made of three main components: the data behind the narrative, the conditional logic and software that makes sense of that data, and the resulting content that is generated.

Data
It starts with data

The main requirement for natural language generation is ownership or access to structured data. Structured data has a defined structure where specific values are categorized into distinct sets.

The output is powered by the narrative design, which is constructed by the end user of the Wordsmith or by our Managed Services team. The narrative design consists of conditional logic rules that trigger different outputs based on the data set behind the content.

Narrative
The result is clear, natural language

The narratives automatically generated via NLG sound as if a human manually crafted each one. As a result, NLG empowers organizations to scale personalized content production and generate written analysis that makes everyone their own data expert.
