Robots Writing Books

Let’s face it, robots and different programs are doing things for humans today. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that robots are now being used to write books.

In Japan a major writing competition accepts submissions written by robots, and one submission advanced past the first round of judging. It didn’t win. Not yet.

I’m not sure why anyone would be surprised by this. Technology is doing far more complex tasks than writing books at this very moment. I think it’ll be interesting to see how these robots fare against humans.

Do you think there will be a time in which the publishing industry is compiled of authors and robots both writing books? I think yes, but maybe not in my lifetime.

Two posts today because I didn’t post yesterday. And watch my video on Amazon’s Bosch!

  1. I don’t know why I bothered being surprised when I was flipping through my Flipboard the other day and saw that article about the Japanese computer author.
    IMO if there are going to be computer authors then they should compete against each other, not humans.
    I can’t put my reasoning into words just yet since I’ve been super busy today but I need to go back and read that article so I can get my facts and thoughts straight on the subject.
