WASHINGTON, NEW HAVEN, Conn. and ATLANTA, June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Speaking on June 7, 2016, at the Specialized Information Publisher Association annual conference in Washington, DC, NewsRx Vice President and Publisher Kalani Rosell said, "Machine writing, robot journalism, automated article writing, artificial intelligence journalism…whatever you want to call this new technology, it's already reshaping our industry. The biggest players are figuring out how to leverage automation, whether to expand their offerings, increase output, or personalize content to a whole new level. When you think about it, the potential is limitless."
C.W. Henderson, NewsRx President, said, "Three research studies from 2014-2016 confirm that computer-written news tends to be rated higher than human-written news in terms of credibility. Readers find texts generated by machines to be more trustworthy and accurate, especially when they do not know that algorithms were used to do the writing."
NewsRx, located in Atlanta, GA and New Haven, CT, pioneered artificial intelligence journalism in 1999, when it became the first company to automate news article writing. A scholarly paper titled "The Journalist Machine" cited NewsRx technology as the Guttenberg Press of the 21st Century. The History of Artificial Intelligence said NewsRx technology began the marriage of artificial intelligence and journalism.
Henderson discussed the three major U.S. companies developing the technologies for machine writing: Narrative Science, Automated Insights, and NewsRx. He said that among the companies embracing these new technologies are Forbes, Associated Press (AP), Thomson Reuters, Dow Jones, Los Angeles Times, and NewsRx.
Over the past 20 years, NewsRx has developed artificial intelligence technology that monitors all emerging research and discoveries throughout the world, and writes a news article about every one of them. The company's goal is to never miss a discovery, which happen at a rate of over one-hundred an hour - more than two new discoveries every minute.
