The above narrative map is built with the same deep learning tools that our clients use to channel the collective intelligence of their customers, patients, and staff. It is built on LLM's (large language models) and deep learning technology,  Phrasia maps are a uniquely powerful way for leaders to hear the earliest, quantified signals of future behavior and performance, in context of the wider picture.
