You have probably read a news article that was written by a machine. When earnings reports come out, or a series of sports events like the Olympics occurs, there are so many small stories that need to be written that a news organization like the Associated Press would have to use all of its resources to write enough content to cover it all.
Wordsmith is a tool for automated content generation, and today’s guest Robbie Allen is the CEO of Automated Insights, the company that makes Wordsmith. He talks today about the wide range of uses for automated content, as well as how to engineer a product that takes data from a spreadsheet and turns it into a human-readable sentence.
Robbie is also speaking at the O’Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference in New York, September 26-27.
