Well, here we are and artificial intelligence is getting more robust behind the scenes, and it is starting to replace more and more people.
I never thought this day would come during my lifetime, but I see it is approaching very quickly.
Although I do not consider myself a writer for hire, I am noting that there is now artificial intelligence software that is writing online articles, and each day they are getting incrementally better.
Currently, you can tell if a computer wrote an article or if the human did.
However, there are also hybrid models; that is to say, a human writes three or four articles on a given topic, and artificially intelligent software makes derivative works and can turn those five articles into 50 articles.
Those articles are a little bit harder to tell if a human actually wrote them, or if it was a computer.
Additionally, these derivative articles do often need a little editing, nevertheless, the day is almost upon us where computers will write entire novels, screenplays, and nearly all the news stories you read online.
In fact, many media outlets are now using computers where an individual types in the; who, what, where, when, and how of a particular news event, and the computer spits out the story.
Then it only takes a little bit of editing, 5 to 6 minutes worth of work and it is ready for the online Publication.
Not only does this increase the speed of news in our society and civilization, but it also takes away the job of a former newspaper staff writer.
Artificial intelligence is at a crossroads, and there is now AI decision making software that is able to take the place of a CEO, and it can do so at a 10th of the cost that many of the CEOs of the top 1000 corporations in the US are being paid, it does not require bonuses or stock options either.
AI computer systems are about to change everything, and we really are at a crossroads.
Please consider all this.
