Software Writes News Articles

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

A start-up known as Narrative Science designed a program that writes human-like stories. Right now it’s used for sports articles but will it eventually be used to write news and politics articles? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks.

    this is part of a phenomenon called technological unemployment

    First I want to apologies for my late response. Second I want to say you are right about your equation, but you are not right about the equation lasting forever. Soon we are going to see a lot of jobs that humans do for income just vanish like smoke in the wind. For more understanding on what I am trying to say just look up Technological Singularity. It will tell you more than I can on this subject in fewer than 500 characters.

    First I want to apologies for my late response. Second I want to say I don't know what we should do. But I think it is plane to see that the majority of what humans get paid for can be done better and cheaper by technology.

    I believe a read a story like this, it didn't turn out to well. This is not the way that we should be heading, not only takes away jobs but it takes away one of the things that make humans so great.

    @start12poop Just you wait…

    LOVE automation! Let's automate as much as we fucking can, then people will be free from slave labor!

  12. sweYoda2 says:

    @start12poop not really, it was true, but today computers automate jobs through the entire chain. Meaning, we will see things more and more automated and soon there will be much more joblessness.

    @VirtuesPenumbra That's only a matter of time. Just look at IBM's jeopardy computer!

    @TheMidwestAtheist I would like to point out that a computer/program CAN'T "learn".

  15. Leo Buzalsky says:

    @TheMidwestAtheist And on that note…one thing this software will not be able to do is full game analysis. By which I mean, it won't be able to say, for example, the QB got sacked a bunch of times BECAUSE the left tackle was screwing up his blocking assignments or the defense was confusing the line with stunts, etc. Not going to know that, unless someone is giving it that input directly. Otherwise, just saying the QB got sacked a bunch of times (without providing a reason) isn't 2 difficult.

  16. Leo Buzalsky says:

    @argonaaut lol, you are exaggerating a little, but there is something else they are forgetting here: the software needs input. Sports data is relatively simple in computer terms because sports have laid-out rules which a program can learn. When an action happens in a game, it's going to figure out which rule that action fits, and apply wording accordingly. Another is that sport scores are in numbers, something computers understand quite well. This is stuff not easily available in other news.

    Robo reporting. The corporate media journalists will be punished for all their whoring, now robots will do the whoring for the elites. It will now be humans verses machines in the infowar. 

  18. argonaaut says:

    You guys are woefully uninformed when it comes to current software technology. Regular expressions combined with algorithms designed to perform statistical analysis on the semantics of human language usage have been around for awhile, and the implications of such technologies are far more dire than any of us can probably fathom. Heck, half the posters to your website are probably bots designed to sway public opinion one way or another.
