Avatar anchors/reporters deliver “News at Seven”

News At Seven is a system that automatically generates a virtual news show. Totally autonomous, it collects, parses, edits and organizes news stories and then passes the formatted content to an artificial anchor for presentation. Using the resources present on the web, the system goes beyond the straight text of the news stories to also retrieve relevant images and blogs with commentary on the topics to be presented.

Visit Northwestern University’s Infolab webpage for details. Previously from WNM: Virtual news bureau; “real” virtual news
