Tomorrow’s Technology Today

Posted on April 12, 2014 12:00 pm

A professor of Computer Science predicts that by 2030, 90% of all news stories will be written not by human reporters but by computer algorithms.

I don’t get why they don’t do that now. How hard can it be to get a computer to reprint the White House talking points?

    Computers can’t process something so illogical.

    So that’s what they meant all these years by “regularly scheduled programming.”

    A computer model could also be made of scientists writing studies that follow the IPCC narrative, it’s pretty clear they’re operating on set parameters. The most recent one I heard of had an author sum up beginning with “the earth is warming…”. This guys parameters haven’t been adjusted in at least a decade! During the study they flew over to Sweden to take samples, just think of all the warming that could have been prevented by simulating all that with a computer.

    in that case I hope that we will have computers to read all those news stories too so we don’t even have to get involved in the process.
