Microsoft to replace journalists with automated systems on MSN

Microsoft won’t renew the contracts of around 50 contract news producers working at MSN and plans to use artificial intelligence to replace them. On Wednesday the tech giant notified affected employees that their services would no longer be needed beyond June 30.

The company said in a statement: "Like all companies, we evaluate our business on a regular basis. This can result in increased investment in some places and, from time to time, redeployment in others. These decisions are not the result of the current pandemic."
