Narrative Science or Scientific Narration?

“Wisconsin appears to be in the driver’s seat en route to a win, as it leads  51-10 after the third quarter.

Wisconsin added to its lead when Russell Wilson found Jacob Pedersen for an eight-yard touchdown to make the score 44-3. The Badgers started the drive at UNLV’s 28-yard line thanks to a Jared Abbrederis punt return.

A one-yard touchdown run by Montee Ball capped off a two-play, 42-yard drive and extended Wisconsin’s lead to 51-3. The drive took 42 seconds. The key play on the drive was a 41-yard pass from Wilson to Bradie Ewing. A punt return gave the Badgers good starting field position at UNLV’s 42-yard line.

A 69-yard drive that ended when Caleb Herring found Phillip Payne from six yards out helped UNLV narrow the deficit to 51-10. The Rebels threw just three passes on the drive.

UNLV will start the fourth quarter with the ball at the 41-yard line.”

What you just read was written by a computer, or, as referred to by its creators, “our technology”.  There was some inputting of data and then some black magic and voila. A short article, written by something other than a person.

How exciting is this!

    Completely depressing. That’s all I got. Depressing.
