The Washington Post Will Use Automation to Help Cover the Election

On  Election Day, journalists at The Washington Post will get an assist from their non-human counterparts.

The newspaper announced Wednesday morning that it will use automation to cover 500 races. Among them: Senate, House and gubernatorial contests across the United States.

The automation technology, Heliograf, was first used by The Post to cover the Rio Olympics and will be repurposed to provide “up-to-date reporting, analysis and results for nearly 500 races.”
