At Bricolage we use cutting-edge text mining and data analytics technologies and research techniques, which allow us to combine different types and sources of data, then examine and analyze them, to discover useful knowledge and gain new insights.

We specialize in taking both structured and unstructured data and bringing them together to spot and extract patterns, correlations, anomalies, entities, topics, themes, and facts that would not have been apparent had just one type of data been used.

By combining data in this way, it becomes possible not just to measure phenomena – to say what is happening and when – but also to look at their possible causes – to understand the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ – and develop predictive models – to forecast future performance and outcomes.

Narrative Science

We started Narrative Science in order to solve a big problem—giving people a fast and simple way to understand data. While companies have invested billions sourcing and aggregating data, spreadsheets and dashboards as mechanisms to understand data simply aren’t cutting it. People want the stories the data supports—about their operations, about their business, about their life. And, what better way to tell stories than through language?

That’s why we are focused on creating exceptional software, starting with our advanced natural language generation platform, Quill, that transforms data into meaningful and insightful narratives people can simply read. Quill enables organizations to spend less time crunching numbers and more time providing their employees and customers with actionable information that, ultimately, makes them smarter.

In response to the need for complex data analysis across public and private sectors, RTI created the Center of Excellence for Complex Data Analysis, or CoDA Center. The CoDA Center is designed to help government agencies, private businesses, and other organizations make informed policy and program decisions based on analyses of complex data from Medicare and Medicaid records, surveys and censuses, clinical trials, Internet search records, genomic studies, social media activity, and other sources.
