SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (CNN) – Humans are out — algorithms are in at Facebook.
People will no longer be writing news descriptions and headlines for the company’s popular news topics.
Facebook is turning that job over to algorithms that automatically pick topics and generate text.
The move comes months after Facebook was accused of political bias in its “trending topics.”
A Gizmodo article claimed freelance editors favored liberal topics over conservative ones.
That team of contract journalists is now gone.
Facebook conducted an internal investigation and said no evidence of bias was found.
But, all employees will now go through political bias training.
