Demo/Poster Session 1 - Tuesday 07/19 16:30 EST
Abstract: This demo paper introduces BLAB reporter, a robot-journalist system covering the Brazilian Blue Amazon. The application is based on a pipeline architecture for Natural Language Generation, which offers daily reports, news summaries and curious facts in Brazilian Portuguese. By collecting, storing and analysing structured data from publicly available sources, the robot-journalist uses domain knowledge to generate, validate and publish texts in Twitter. Code and corpus are publicly available.
