Writing with AI

AI Literary Collaboration

Familiar Innovations that changed human life include wheels and sails for transport, the multifaceted industrial revolution in material goods production, photography for image production, and many others. AI will have at least as great an influence and it will have it this year.

A friend who is a graphic artist began experimenting with AI in October, 2022. Last week we talked about the ease and speed of producing short storys using Open AI’s ChatGPT. The next day, she sent me some stories made with ChatGPT’s most basic writing options. The stories include humor, sarcasm, and intrigue. They are not terrible and can be improved with ease.

A million users signed up for OpenAI’s ChatGPT in the first five days after release November 30, 2022. There will be at least 100 million more by the end of 2023. My friend’s venture into AI-produced literature from start to finish occurred in a single day. If stories written in a few seconds are too coarse for publication, there are AI editors that can fix the flaws in a few seconds more. I saw a YouTube video that explains how to write one or more books per day, including formatting, publication, and marketing. These are short books, booklets of 10,000 or 15,000 words really. A few days would be required to write a 50,000-word book. As a last step, other AI Bots can alter style to disguise the AI origin. All the millions of new ChatGPT users can instantly become productive writers, and we can expect many will.

Play this short YouTube video by Ryan Reynolds for a marketing/sales example. So surprising I had to play it twice.

“The pace of acceleration is so incredible that these tools – which are shocking and awing us at the beginning of 2023 – are going to seem quite quaint by the end of the year because the capabilities are just going to increase so powerfully”Nina Schick.

The AI revolution will bring changes to most human endeavors. Wearable AI is available now, and implants are coming. Implants requiring us to plug in periodically for recharge and update might seem utterly unacceptable, but marketers are confident early adopters among young people will be sufficient to support the enterprise.

Here’s some language Open AI recommends: “The author generated this text in part with GPT-x, OpenAI’s large-scale language-generation model. Upon generating draft language, the author reviewed, edited, and revised the language to their own liking and takes ultimate responsibility for the content of this publication.”

Last Words

Will human-produced literature survive? Painting survived photography, but AI alternatives such as DALL-E-2 will surely reduce human artists’ market share. We will have to wait and see how well new human-produced writing survives. The wait won’t be long.
