Computer Generated Writing Replacing Journalism

LET me hazard a guess that you think a real person has written what you're reading. Maybe you're right. Maybe not. Perhaps you should ask me to confirm it the way your computer does when it demands that you type those letters and numbers crammed like abstract art into that annoying little box.

She has background in communications from being a Marketing and Communications Director and a background in technology from working as an System Analyst/Programmer. Also, she has written other articles relating to artificial intelligence, business, and law. This makes her a reliable source for writing this article.  | I took away from this article the increase in use of algorithms and natural language generators. In industries that involve a lot of data, such as finance, sports, and merchandising, these language generators can easily take loads of data and put it into written statements. It is also hard to tell the difference between the computer versus the human writer because this technology has advanced so much. | This shows the career possibilities within the field of computer science and linguistics, which is an area of study that is possible to take at IU. After reading this article, it might be interesting to pursue this area of study. 04-21-2015 1:13pm
