Data Explorers launches robot journalist
Data Explorers has partnered with Narrative Science to create the world's first securities lending newswire using an artificial intelligence system.

Narrative Science helps companies create editorial content at a speed and scale that was not previously feasible. The company’s artificial intelligence system takes raw data and transforms it into narrative content including stories, insightful business reports, tweets and more.

Data Explorers is currently in the final stages testing the system internally and expects to go live on the site in the next couple of weeks. The authoring technology will be able to write 20 articles a day about short selling and institutional investor holdings identified by some three million intraday transactions in its database.

Jonathan Morris, COO of Data Explorers, said, “Narrative Science enables a relatively small financial data organisation to create its own bespoke newswire”. The newswire will also be made available on third party market data providers, Bloomberg, Capital IQ and FactSet.
