A recent article was posted on NY Times about a company who is using artificial intelligence to create prose and write stories. Narrative Science from Evanston, IL is the company behind the technology.
The following quote is from the story posted here on the New York Times Business section:
The leaders of Narrative Science emphasized that their technology would be primarily a low-cost tool for publications to expand and enrich coverage when editorial budgets are under pressure. The company, founded last year, has 20 customers so far. Several are still experimenting with the technology, and Stuart Frankel, the chief executive of Narrative Science, wouldn’t name them. They include newspaper chains seeking to offer automated summary articles for more extensive coverage of local youth sports and to generate articles about the quarterly financial results of local public companies.
So, in the future blogs will be written by computers. . . now all we need is computers to read the blogs written by computers and humanity can descend into oblivion. Obviously this blogger is not a fan.
