9 comments on “Robot Journalism

  1. Articles that I’ve read have said these robots aren’t doing away with REAL reporters and their jobs but give it time. It’s bound to happen and when it does, I agree with you. It’s going to be a sad, sad day for real journalism.

  2. I’m agreeing with you on this one, Larry. So much of the time I don’t like the direction this world is going in!

  3. This story contains human error– “The robot report contains less (should be “fewer”) errors…” , but let’s hope humans continue writing most future. We already have enough generic reporting in USA Today to make readers fall asleep. As long as the NY Times exists, we’ll be ok. Like Larry, I hope I’m gone before the ‘bots take over journalism. In his novel 1984, George Orwell foresaw all of this.
