The next news:rewired digital journalism conference is taking place in just two weeks, and we are pleased to announce Arria as the latest sponsor of the event.
Based in London, the company has developed a software that automates data analysis and report writing, using Natural Language Generation (NLG) technology.
The Arria NLG Engine can help publishers speed up the process of dealing with numbers and data in order to automatically produce written articles and reports in a variety of formats, as well as graphs and audio soundbites. The platform has already been used in the financial services, energy and health sectors.
Doctor Robert Dale, Arria’s chief technology officer, will be joining Simon Perry, publisher of On The Wight, to discuss robot journalism and how such algorithms can help in the newsroom.
The event, organised by Journalism.co.uk, takes place on 1 December 2015 at the MSN UK offices in Victoria London.
The day will offer a mix of practical workshops and panel discussions looking at the latest techniques and trends in digital journalism. Delegates will hear from speakers from The Washington Post, the Guardian, Vice News, BuzzFeed, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, The Economist and more.
Check out the programme for the day here. Tickets cost just £165+VAT and you can add a full day of training on top with a news:rewired+ ticket for £335+VAT.
