Oh boy, what a day it's been in the world of artificial intelligence. Those wacky computer programmers over at United States company Thomson Financial have developed software for the computing machines that generates most excellent news stories from corporate earnings reports. What a bunch of smart guys. Amazingly, the United States company Thomson Financial's computing machines can turn statements of finance into good news stories within 300 milliseconds of this financial information data going public. A corporate executive person from United States company Thomson Financial says that this method of storytelling allows reporters to do more important reporter things. How cool is that? Many stupid humans say that witless publications such as American technology weblog Engadget are already being transcribed by robots, but we think that is crazy nonsense talk. End transmission.
