How AI Could Affect the Publishing Industry

Elizabeth A. Harris and Alexandra Alter write the following in “A.I.’s Inroads in Publishing Touch Off Fear, and Creativity” for The New York Times:

[P]ublishing is facing a new disruption that is likely to be … wide-ranging and transformative: the rise of artificial intelligence.

Some in the publishing world are already experimenting with artificial intelligence programs in areas such as marketing, advertising, audiobook production and even writing, weighing their promise of supporting work done by humans against the threat that the machines may take over some of those jobs entirely.

For others in the industry, the threat is already here. Writers have joined other artists, coders and content creators in suing A.I. companies, accusing them of using their work to train A.I. systems. … [T]he technology has the potential to reshape nearly every aspect of the work that goes into producing a book—even the act of writing itself.
