Knowi InstantSights: Natural Language Generation

Knowi has introduced “InstantSights” which empowers you with the ability to present complex data analysis results in simplified and easily understandable plain English insights so that it may become easy to ask queries.

In this blog post, we will cover the following aspects of InstantSights: 

Let’s get started 🚀


InstantSights aims to translate technical or statistical information into plain English so that even a layman or a stakeholder can easily comprehend the insights without requiring deep knowledge of the underlying analytics techniques.

InstantSights takes a user’s calculations, anomaly detection, and a bit of machine learning to calculate growth patterns, data behaviors summaries, etc. and surface that up in plain English. 

The tool automatically generates or assists in crafting explanations, descriptions, or narratives that accurately convey the meaning and implications of the data insights, making it easier for a broader audience to understand and act upon the information.

The InstantSights may include key findings, summaries, trends, correlations, or patterns discovered through the analysis process.



The transformation of the data into plain English insights allows better decision-making, enhanced communication, and many other benefits as listed below:

  • Improved Accessibility: By presenting complex data analysis results in plain language, insights become more accessible to a wider audience. Non-technical stakeholders, such as managers or executives, can easily understand and interpret the findings, leading to better-informed decision-making.
  • Enhanced Communication: Plain English insights facilitate effective communication between data analysts and stakeholders. It reduces the need for jargon or technical terms, ensuring that the insights are easily understood and shared across teams or departments. This promotes clearer discussions and alignment on data-driven strategies.
  • Faster Decision-Making: When insights are presented in a straightforward manner, stakeholders can quickly grasp the implications of the data analysis. This accelerates the decision-making process, as there is no need for extensive explanation or interpretation, enabling timely actions or adjustments based on the insights.
  • Reduced Misinterpretation: Complex technical language can lead to misinterpretation or misunderstandings of data analysis results. Insights in plain English minimize the risk of miscommunication, ensuring that stakeholders correctly understand the key findings, trends, or correlations derived from the data.
  • Empowered Self-Service Analytics: Plain English insights enable self-service analytics, where non-technical users can independently explore and comprehend data analysis outcomes. It reduces reliance on data experts for interpretation, empowering users to make data-driven decisions without requiring deep analytical skills.
