Artificial intelligence will post updates on the Olympics throughout the next few weeks. The statuses will include graphics (such as race times, medal winners, etc.) and short sentences about the transpiring events. Longer, more focused pieces will still be written by journalists, while allowing the reporters more time to focus on their articles.
