Robo-Reporters To Replace Mainstream Journalists?

The mainstream media is now so glib, unquestioning and intellectually castrated that robo-reporters could soon replace real journalists – without anyone noticing.
Computer algorithms are already being used to manufacture news stories about earthquakes and other data-rich issues and this same process could soon be employed for sports games and eventually more complicated news stories – rendering many journalists obsolete. Human editors would probably still be needed to check stories before publication, but the actual process of writing articles could be handed over completely to artificially intelligent software programs. TheVancouver Sun reports today  that the Los Angeles Times is already using robo-reporters for some of its content, thanks to a computer program developed by the newspaper’s digital editor Ken Schwencke. Source: infowars.com/Image Screen Shot On Video.
