Data to text, and text to data. Some types of news stories are really dressed up data, such as financial reports and sports scores, and we'll take a look at the newsrooms and technologies that are already being used to produce these stories automatically. In the other direction, documents like financial disclosures or bulk incident reports contain useful data that can be extracted. Tools for reporting on large volumes of unstructured text are coming along slowly, but much is possible today.
