Automatic Narrative Visualization

2020 - Present

I created Calliope (an automatic story generation system) with Prof. Cao in 2020, and built several intelligent algorithms on it. The system is named after the Muse who presides over eloquence and epic poetry. The literal translation is "beautiful-voiced". We wish this system can power the future with attractive data narratives.
