John Smith, a self-published author from New York City, has recently made headlines for his ambitious and innovative use of artificial intelligence (AI) to write almost 100 books. Smith claims that he has sold 574 copies of these AI-written books since August last year, resulting in nearly $2,000 worth of sales.
The process began when Smith wrote a single book using AI software, which then generated 97 additional titles based on the same story premise. The topics range from science fiction to romance novels and all are written with the help of an algorithm created by Smith himself. While some may be skeptical about the quality or originality of such works being produced by machines alone, it is clear that there is still a market for them as evidenced by his impressive sales figures over the past nine months.
Smith’s success shows us just how far technology can take us in terms of creativity and expression – something which was once thought impossible only decades ago! His experiment also highlights our growing reliance on automation not only in entertainment but increasingly across other industries too; proving that even mundane tasks can now be completed more efficiently with machine learning tools at our disposal.
