Ed. note: We thought it'd be fun to give our new robot journalist this report on robot journalists for its first story. Looks like there's still some kinks to work out! In case you're confused, here's the human rundown: Though we've heard about robot writers for a while, they were always just about crunching facts and spitting out write-ups. These newest models take it a step further with actual reporting.


They're supposedly able to detect anomalies in their environments to determine newsworthy items, take relevant photographs and collect quotes from bystanders. They can then synthesize all of those components into a piece and publish it directly to the web. (Apparently there's no robo-editor?) We've always joked about these robot writers taking our jobs, but this new one actually has us a little scared. Thankfully, it looks like we have a little time before it perfects its human-voice!
