How Reuters is using AI for articles
Polis’ JournalismAI has a nice interview with Viktoriia Samatova, the MD of the Applied Innovations Team at Reuters Technology, who is building crazy proof of concept machines that can write the news. Samatova’s CV is incredibly impressive – her background is in finance and economics as well as machine learning. Maybe that’s why we can’t help but feel she has higher expectations of her fellow media workers than might be the case.
I know that today many journalists are a little bit like aspiring computer scientists. One thing that they are involved in is templating work so that it can be used to create sentences via natural language generation.
Yeah… not sure it’s that many, Viktoriia. Still, gives us something to aim for.
