Nila June’s co-creators have deep experience using data, language, and technology to create business information products.
As the longtime head of product management for Reis, Greg Williams built analytical products that were relied upon at every stage of the commercial real estate transaction lifecycle. Among his creations was a widely adopted natural language generation (NLG) system for the evaluation of markets, submarkets, and properties. On Qwerticulation.com Greg discusses his vision for commercially deployable NLG.
Paul Grier, a versatile and accomplished technology leader, has served as director of technology at Moody’s Analytics and as SVP of technology at Reis. In addition to providing strategic and tactical guidance to his colleagues in the C-suite, he is skilled at building development teams and leading them to deliver complex projects on time. While maintaining an executive perspective, he is also a systems architect, network security expert, and a hands-on developer with a long track record of creating successful business information products.
Today, the two apply their complementary skills to building natural language generation systems based on user-provided data sets.
Nila June Abbott Repass, Greg’s grandmother, was a real estate agent in Blount County, TN.
