Phrasee Raises $4 Million Series A for Machine-Written Ad Copy

The U.S. is about to start Labor Day weekend, which is a good or bad time to discuss workers being replaced by machines. We’re talking about human copywriters, which UK-based Phrasee says it can beat 98% of the time with an AI system that ingests the performance of a year’s worth of brand copy, figures out what works, and writes email subject lines, Facebook and Instagram ads, and push messages. They just raised $4 million which they’ll use to add staff and expand in the U.S. market.
