Its an interesting quesion. Is some of it dependant on the kind of litearture you like reading? I'm a really emotive reader, and don't care too much about plot and structure (as long as they're not terrible). Am I being naive when I find it hard to wrap my head around the idea of AI creating compelling emotional intelligence?

The article does talk a lot more about screenplays, which I can sort of see working better, especially because so much of the emotional impact is based on the actor's/directors interpretation... interesting ANYWAY

I assume in a few years AI could throw together a standard Netflix show that has a half-decent idea executed flashily that has nothing of interest to say by the end of the season but has hit all the correct emotional "beats."

Yeah some of the Kdramas I spent my weekend watching could have been written by a robot to be fair.

You're probably right about it working well for scripts since humans still have to act the damn thing, unless we replace them by life-like AI characters i guess.

To be positive, AI could probably help in the writing of, say, a potboiler by writing half the basic plot, fact checking period details and allowing you to concentrate on how it's written and making changes to the formula as you see fit.

Yeah, this is sort of what I was getting at. There are some genres that it could work really well for, and it could make the author more of a "curator" or "refiner" so to speak!

This is the exact topic that every presenter at every tech writing conference I've gone to for work covers too, and the answer of whether AI can do our jobs is a LOT easier to answer - hard yes.
