Throwback Thursday: Robots Will Change the Way We Write

Will robots replace writers? This post argues that they will take over the more mundane aspects of writing by, for example producing simple weather and sports reports. However, it goes on to say that it is unlikely that robots will take over in the field of creative writing. Indeed (the author states) that the advent of robots may encourage we humans to become more uniquely creative. An interesting read.

A Writer's Path

Throwback Thursday is a series where we take a look back at some of AWP’s most popular posts. Enjoy!

As someone working at an indie publishing agency, reading about robots that write news articles is terrifying and exciting at the same time. I am not a writer; I am a marketer, so the prospect of another major shakedown of the publishing industry makes me hope if not for a better future, then at least for something new. New challenges, new opportunities.

This morning we had our weekly, company-wide conference call where we discuss what’s happening with our company and the world around it. As usual, I did some research before the call and stumbled upon an article about writing-robots. When I shared it, I swear I could hear terror on the other side of the line, despite everyone trying to play it cool. Maybe it’s just my…

    It’s a bit of a scary idea. Still, I can’t imagine robots being very moving creative writers. I think creativity is uniquely human. Or, at least, we’re unique in the degree to which we’re creative. Human beings are born storytellers. Still, the article had some good suggestions for upping our writing game.

    Also, I shared the “Real Neat Blog Award” with you. You can see it here: https://doingthewritething.wordpress.com/2017/07/08/thats-just-neat/ . No worries if you don’t want to accept it though. 🙂

      Many thanks for your comment and the Real Neat Blog Award. You may well be correct as regards creativity being a uniquely human atribute. However it is notoriously difficult to predict the future so (while maintaining a healthy scepticism), I shall remain open minded on the matter.
      I very much appreciate your kindness in thinking of me for the Award. However due to my writing and other commitments, I regret that I am unable to accept it.
      Very best wishes, Kevin
