This News-Writing Bot Is Now Free for Everyone

Commentary by Stephen Downes

So I have my own newspaper that's almost completely automated (most days I do nothing but read it) but this bot doesn't just assemble the articles, it writes them. On one level, this is pretty simple - give the program some data sources (sports scores, stock markets) and add some rules to select templates and manipulate data. But over time, with experience, these can become sophisticated. And now you can use them. " Automated Insights, much like its competitor Narrative Science, works with large customers to create the templates that the Wordsmith software fills in. This new service allows anyone to create their own templates and dump data into them on their own."
