Xiaomingbot is the first artificial intelligence capable of generating news articles in a wide variety of languages. It is developed by ByteDance, the owner of the TikTok app.
Over the past few years, natural language generationtechnology, based on artificial intelligence, has advanced significantly. Today, it allows us to create robots capable of automatically developing newsreports.
These IAs are not yet sufficiently developed to replace Jean-Pierre Pernaut or Anne-Sophie Lapix, but can be used for certain categories of minor reporting. For example, they can synthesize the results of second league sporting matches. The data is accessible, and the AI can generate a summary without the need to send a human reporter on site.
