According to Wired, the Post’s program still depends on editors to create “narrative templates” for the stories and uses Heliograf to access a data sources, such as the data clearinghouse VoteSmart.org for election stories.

The Heliograf software then matches the relevant data with the editors’ pre-written templates for each race, and merges the two together for the first published version of an election story. The bots then automatically update the published stories with updated election returns. But reporters still add analysis and a more specific narrative to the important races.
