The Daily Startup: Narrative Science Seeks New Uses For Robotic Writing Software

Article from The Daily Startup, Wall Street Journal, September 10, 2013 –  Narrative Science Inc. got lots of attention a couple of years ago for creating software that could potentially replace human sports reporters by automatically generating basic news stories about baseball games. Since then, the Chicago company has continued to refine its software, and it has now raised $11.5 million in new funding to go after more markets, including financial services, Chief Executive Stuart Frankel told VentureWire. The Series C round comes from SAP Ventures and Jump Capital and includes current investors Battery Ventures and Northwestern University.
