AI to summarize news to be developed by Facebook

For many years, Facebook has been trying to get a foothold in the news space. A dedicated section was launched by Facebook for the same, known as Facebook News in the US. More countries are set to get the program soon. Facebook has also begun development of an AI tool to summarize news called TL;DR. Users will no longer have to click the article but can rather just read the summary instead.

And rest assured folks, the good people of Facebook will place no bias whatsoever in those summaries. They will be based off of complete and total facts from thoroughly vetted stories. The Zuck is here to serve YOU!

Most people that use Facebook only seem to read the headlines maybe it will help give them a bit more knowledge. I expect the ai to screw it up as the article suggests though. Maybe even using format manipulation or key words to make the summary the opposite of the article.

Why not pacify the majority of their usership and move straight to cartoons.

In other words, they will summarize the articles so yo never have to leave Facebook. Google gets sued for snippets, but this is okay?

Reminded of Apple's MacOS Summarize service available ~2014. Can be automated with AppleScript.

Good grief, how is this something new? Any decent news article will have its content summarized in the first paragraph. The headline grabs your interest, the first paragraph is "supposed" to contain who, what, when, where, why, and how, and be compellingly written enough that the reader wants to peruse the rest of the article. I guess it's become necessary, since people are incapable of supporting actual newspapers, who hire actual journalists capable of writing a quasi-coherent piece, leaving us with a surplus of poorly constructed garbage.

Oh this is a great idea... for those that want more low information voters that'll only read the headlines and biased summaries

More censorship at Facebook is not a good thing!
