The Press Gazette reports that Google is funding a project to develop robotic generation of news stories. The project will initially target the under-served market for local media stories, with electronic capture of data relevant to selected localities combined. The captured data will then be used to populate templates developed to reflect the types of news that local markets are most likely to generate. Google anticipates that the robot news agency, Radar (Reporters And Data And Robots), will be able to use Artificial Intelligence to create up to 30,000 localized news stories every month in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Google's Digital News Initiative (DNI) is providing funding for the cooperative project with European news publishers.
