An AI Stock in the Media Industry Called tronc

In our recent article about artificially intelligent (AI) robot writers, we talked about how media content is starting to be automatically generated using scripted methods that let you produce lots of content very easily. Here at Nanalyze, we love to write about technology in a way that is relevant to investors, straight forward, and doesn’t pander to anyone. We typically don’t cite authors on our articles because we believe the message is more important than the messenger (don’t shoot the messenger and all that). We also believe that someday in our lifetimes, the occupation of being a “writer” is going the way of the dodo because artificial intelligence (AI) will do a better job than human authors. At that point, you could either make up fake names for your authors or what will most likely happen is we’ll have different AI sages that are watched over by a human editor but that publish under a single brand name.

Sure, you can say that “we’ll all still prefer the human touch” and that “we need diversity in our messages” but smart people know that with today’s deluge of information there is a need for honed, focused content piped straight to your head. What if Elon Musk’s only job was finding content that matched every interest you had and he hand wrote every piece of information you needed to know? That sort of tailored content generation is what AI will enable. We recently came across a very interesting company called tronc (yes, we used a lower case t) that is making some bold statements about how they plan to use AI to disrupt the media industry.
