Microsoft to replace news producers with AI: reports

May 30, 2020 11:36 IST

Microsoft is laying off at least 50 news production workers and replacing them with AI-based algorithms to perform their editorial duties, the Seattle Times reported. These news production contractors work with Microsoft News, the company’s news content arm that operates MSN.com and other properties. The work includes identifying trending news stories, rewrite headlines or adding better photographs or slide shows. Besides the production work, the contract employees also planned content, maintained the editorial calendars of partner news websites and assigned content to them.
