Using #NLG in Business for Prescriptive Narratives

Using #NLG in Business for Prescriptive Narratives | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

The purpose of analytics is to influence human behavior, and the market needs better solutions to help drive that influence. I can imagine a system in which sales teams are served up prescriptive narrative alongside visual analytics. BI tools know their user. If the system knows who you are and what you’re filtering – what questions you’re asking the system – it can also send back generated narrative specific to those variables. Something like, “85 percent of our teams advance opportunities like this when using the AwesomeProduct collateral, and it doesn’t look like the customer has seen that yet.”

@Exfluency's #Blockchain Vision for the #Translation Industry

Robert Etches: "Already in 10–15 years, there will be some household (corporate) names and technologies that do not exist or have only just started today. And by 2050 the entire finance, food, and transport sectors (to name the obvious) will be ‘blockchained’ beyond recognition. At Exfluency, we see multilingual communication as an obvious area where a token economy and blockchain will also come out on top; I’m sure that other entrepreneurs in a myriad of other sectors are coming to similar conclusions."

Danger of Inferential Analytics for Anonymised Data in a GDPR Culture

Danger of Inferential Analytics for Anonymised Data in a GDPR Culture | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it
None of the rights in the GDPR will apply to anonymized data. This is problematic for two reasons. First, any de-identified data can theoretically be reverse engineered and linked back to an individual4. Second, even truly anonymized data can be used to build user profiles and thus privacy and discrimination harms still occur5, without the need to identify a particular individual. Here again data protection law focuses on the stage of data collection rather than on how the data is used, and its effects on relevant individuals and groups6.
