Levearing the power of data-driven storytelling

Big Idea

Storyo is a free mobile app that automatically creates video stories from photos on a smartphone. The app uses a patented algorithm that creates a narrative using data from any number of photos and enriches it with contextual information from the internet, so that each video tells its own story. In 2013, Storymatik applied for a patent for its technology entitled “Systems and methods for automatic narrative creation”. This technology is what drives Strips and Storyo and its ability to interpret a set of photos and create narratives automatically. The patent was granted in the United States by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
