A recent study by researchers at Stanford and the University of Washington found that Automated Insights’ technology has had a profound effect on the stock market. Hundreds of firms that got very little attention from traders are now seeing significantly more trading volume and liquidity, thanks to a technology partnership between the Associated Press and Automated Insights. Before the partnership, the AP could only cover around 300 firms. With Wordsmith, our groundbreaking platform for writing automation, the AP can now cover around 4,500 firms each quarter.
The researchers focused on the impact “robo-journalism” has on capital markets, specifically the Associated Press’ (AP) use of Automated Insights’ (Ai) technology to automate corporate quarterly earnings reports. The AP first started using natural language generation, or NLG, back in 2014 with the help of Ai.
