Thomson Financial has begun replacing humans with computers to write stories in the newsroom. The computers work so fast that an earnings story can be released within 0.3 seconds of the company making results public. You can’t break a story much faster than that!
This is not about cost but about delivering information to our customers at a speed at which they can make an almost immediate trading decision, said Matthew Burkley, senior vice-president of strategy at Thomson Financial.This means we can free up reporters so they have more time to think.
Think about updating their resumes 😉
