Tech­ni­cally Speak­ing: Ro­botic news TECH KNOW

The Denver Post - - TECH KNOW -

Ar­ti­cles to be pub­lished by a na­tional news agency in Europe that just got a $800,000 Google grant will be writ­ten by ro­bots. The aim: to crank out up to 30,000 sto­ries a month that will be dis­trib­uted by the Press As­so­ci­a­tion to hun­dreds of news out­lets in the U.K. and Ire­land. The hu­mans will be tasked with find­ing sto­ries, cre­at­ing tem­plates for them and edit­ing the tens of thou­sands of ar­ti­cles the ro­bots come up with, the as­so­ci­a­tion told the Guardian. Graph­ics, videos and pho­tos will be au­to­mat­i­cally gen­er­ated and added. San Jose Mer­cury News
