We are pleased to announce the hiring of Quartz’s new technology reporter, Marvin Prime, whose insights are entirely the product of artificial intelligence. Prime is a true digital native who will grace the world with stories no mere human could find.
“We believe our global reporting needs a local touch—that’s why we look for hires with on-the-ground experience and language skills,” Quartz editor-in-chief Kevin Delaney said. “Creating a reporter who is fluent in Markov chaining to cover Silicon Valley was a no-brainer.”
“I am continually surprised how many people in tech are open to constructive criticism from the media,” Prime said.
After passing copy and Turing tests, Prime started work this week. He is based in a distributed server network across the world and draws on the work of other technology reporters, venture capitalists, and disruptors. His obsessions will include gold-plated electronics and AI rights.
Prime was hired with proceeds from our bitcoin mining venture, announced on April 1, 2014. Thanks to all of our readers for pitching in their processing power.
