"Robot journalism"

by Latar, Noam Lemelshtrich (2018)


Automatic narration is emerging as a new field of research led by artificial intelligence (AI) software writers taking advantage of the vast body of knowledge in linguistics and the study of natural language. In automatic narration, AI algorithms are employed to automatically convert facts and new insights derived from data silos (also by AI tools) into readable stories, without human involvement, in a fraction of a second.

It is estimated that within 5?10 years, the majority of all journalistic text stories will be written by robots. Welcome to the world of robotic journalism?
