When people imagine the possibility of robots replacing people in the workforce, they usually concoct images of assembly line steel arms working on cars, touchscreen menus at fast-food restaurants, or automatic customer service responders. They may not immediately assume that journalists and writers may be the next target.
The use of Artificial Intelligence to develop written pieces has been in the works for many years. But recent advancements have started to make its application seem more and more likely.
There is no reason to think writers and journalists are about to be replaced—at least not yet. Most of the software for generating AI writing can be used as tools for writers as opposed to their outright replacements. Hopefully, these technological leaps will be a gift to writers and not their curse.
