Tech pundits often write about how a new tech disrupts an existing industry, and if Narrative Science is successful we're going to be hoist by our own petard.
Narrative Science has been working for the past several years to develop algorithms that can replace basic reporting. It's been working with a number of news sites, including some as high profile as ABC and Forbes.
These news sites have been using Quill, the company's automated authoring platform, to turn basic statistics into news articles. Quill combines data analytics with artificial intelligence to transform data into narratives and insights, freeing writers from having to write the same basic article for each financial report or analyst's prediction.
