Vista Acquires "Robot" Writing Co. Automated Insights
February 13, 2015
Vista Equity Partners and its sports-focused portfolio company STATS have acquired Automated Insights (Ai), a company whose platform automatically transforms raw data into stories in place of a human writer. The investment will help fast-track the adoption of Ai's natural language generation technology across industries beyond just sports, including business intelligence and media; the platform is already used by customers such as The Associated Press, Yahoo and Comcast.
