Kate Goodloe of The Wall Street Journal Online reports that an online show, called "News at Seven," is using "an automated computer program to comb online news outlets for major stories of the day and to pair them with video and still photos culled from sites like Google Images and YouTube. The newscast is delivered by an avatar."

Still in beta, News at Seven is a project of two computer-science graduate students and a professor at Northwestern University's Intelligent Information Laboratory, and was funded with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
