Automated news at the BBC

Earlier this year, ESR Samuel Danzon-Chambaud researched the @BBC_News_Labs‘ use of automated news and documented how they engaged with this type of technology. Now, his findings have been published as a BBC Research and Development white paper.

His work showed, for example, that the BBC used a structured journalism approach when delineating baseline scenarios for automated news, but to a human-in-the-loop system when handling edge cases, such as the 2019 elections.
