Now Available for Free: News-Writing Bot

Want your own news-writing bot? Here ya go. “Today Automated Insights has launched a beta version of its new free service based on Wordsmith, the technology it uses to generate stories for companies like the AP. Typically, 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.”

I’m imagining many opportunities for shenanigans.
