James Kotecki is Head of Communications at Automated Insights, makers of "robot writing" software.
His work has earned multiple awards, national media coverage, and millions of YouTube views.
The Economist called him "probably the world's foremost expert on YouTube videos posted by presidential candidates."
In early 2007, James started a political video blog in his Georgetown University dorm room. Within months, The Economist said he was "probably the world's foremost expert on YouTube videos posted by presidential candidates."
After graduation, James joined Politico to cover the 2008 presidential campaign with an award-winning daily video show. In 2012, he wrote and hosted videos for The Daily, a first-of-its-kind newspaper for tablets and smartphones.
Now, he is Head of Communications at Automated Insights, whose Wordsmith platform automatically turns data into narrative. In other words, it's software that writes like a human expert.
James has been interviewed by CNN, FOX News, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, NPR, the BBC, and many others. He's spoken at events sponsored by Google, the International Finance Corporation, and Harvard University.
