If you believe anything can and will be automated with artificial intelligence (AI), then you might not be surprised to know how many notable media organizations including The New York Times, Associated Press, Reuters, Washington Post, and Yahoo! Sports already use AI to generate content.
The Press Association, for example, can now produce 30,000 local news stories a month using AI. You might think that these are formulaic who, what, where and when stories and you are right, some of them certainly are. But, today, AI-written content has expanded beyond formulaic writing to more creative writing endeavors such as poetry and novels. How does AI write content? The software process that automatically creates a written narrative from data is called natural language generation (NLG).
