First ever Robot Journalist launched in the history of Pakistan

KARACHI: Pakistan has introduced the first-ever robot journalist , Dante, who writes and publishes a comprehensive report on stocks traded at the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX).

“The Pakistan Stock Exchange is closed at 3:30pm (from Monday to Thursday and at 4:30pm on Friday) and it gets the daily report published before it is 3:31pm,” said the award-winning tech startup, baseH Technologies, Founder and CEO Anisuddin Sheikh.

TheRoboJournalist, also called Dante, had been writing the reports for the past few days, he said at a signing ceremony to get seed money from the Elahi Group of Companies for the project at the National Incubation Centre (NIC) at NED University on Saturday.

Simultaneously, the artificial intelligence (AI)-based content writing software develops a video on share trading and gets it uploaded at YouTube, Sheikh said.

The robot journalist is capable of doing sports and weather reporting as well. Later, it will be equipped to report on other sectors like health, education and culture. The financial sector, especially the securities brokerage houses and asset management firms, can also hire the robot to write comprehensive financial reports to seek guidance on taking investment and divestment decisions every morning.

“We have advanced talks with three big media houses in Pakistan for deployment of the AI technology,” the startup founder said.
