Description

This video summarizes News at Seven, an automated news system. The system is able to find relevant text, process that text, and supplement it with images, video, and blogger responses. The final output of the system is an online Flash presentation that uses animated avatars with generated speech and is modeled after traditional nightly news broadcast. Current segments include a Movie Review, an Entertainment Segment, and a Louis Black style rant segment. More information about News at Seven can be found at http://newsatseven.com. News at Seven is also currently live at http://www.zap2it.com/news/zap-news-at-7,0,6717570.htmlstory.
