Robot Authors

I am thinking of having a robot write my Google+ posts, if I could find a good one. So far text bots can write short blog posts for sports and financial stories. For instance, here is a short finance report written for Forbes by an algorithm supplied by Narrative Science.

In the near future most text (measured by number of characters generate) will be written by text bots. And most of the agents reading this machine-generated text will be other machines. This has led some to worry about machine trading in finance based on text written by machines. This is already happening.
