Google blows $800k on bots to flood the UK with 30,000 'articles' a month

Hmm, Wait a minute....I thought auto-generating content was against googles TOS?

Quote:
Google has today awarded 706,000 ($800,000) to the UKs Press Association to develop robot reporters that can crank out 30,000 articles a month for local newspapers and bloggers.

The cash injection is part of the advertising goliath's 150m Digital News Initiative, a three-year program that allegedly supports European journalism through technology (or, rather, helps websites get more readers and thus shift more Google ads). Now in its third and final year, the fund will bankroll 107 projects in 27 countries to the tune of 22m ($25m) in 2017.

Is this real news? It says at the bottom that it's sponsored by some IT company.

Well, it makes sense because google announced to fight "fake news" so I guess that's one of the ways to fight them... drown so called fake news by flooding it with 1000's of same stories...

They generate it, and facebook and other social medias are picking them and weeding out the ones they consider to be fake... makes sense to me.

Making commission from that work... why not for them
