Course Description: 
We are excited to announce our inaugural symposium on the Science of Stories. During this intensive three-day professional education course, we will explore the nature of narratives, how to extract them from data, how they move through time and space, and how to preserve them through communication. We will also explore how to communicate data-rich narratives to the public and how to tell a story using data visualizations. In this course, we will introduce participants to methods, tools, and theory at the forefront of complex systems science, cognitive science, sentiment analysis, network theory, information theory, digital humanities, literature, data visualization, and data analytics.

Our professional education programs bring together a diverse network of business professionals, academics, innovators, investors, government and health practitioners, regulators, and thought leaders. Our programs challenge participants to think about global issues from a new perspective, to expand their network, and seek solutions to real world data-rich problems. No background in science or mathematics is required.
