Thomson Reuters looks to automate story-writing

Thomson Reuters has confirmed it is looking to automate the writing of its more throwaway financial stories, such as those generated from regulatory filings and press releases.

Betty Wong, the global managing editor for Reuters News, told the Society of American Business Editors and Writers annual conference : “We are also continuing to automate ‘commoditized’ work from press release and exchange news feeds.”

Wong said the move would free up reporters to focus on “enterprise reporting and breaking news in the field”.
