Journalists Replaced By Robots
from the who-needs-me-anyway dept
The Register is reporting about a new robot that has been designed to take press releases and wire releases and automatically write short news articles based on them. This isn’t really what it’s designed for, but the Register likes the idea. Hell, if it could come up with funny lines and the occasional insightful comment (along with some terrible grammar and spelling), then we could just let it write Techdirt (because, while we’re perfect spellers and grammarians, we’ve never been either funny or insightful).
