Writing a good novel

Write a good novel

Do you think a robotic could compose a novel? AI has long been fascinating sci-fi and phantasy-authors. Ray Kurzweil, an AI designer, predicts from his new position as Google AI' s technical engineer that by 2029, the computer will be able to outwit even the smartest people. At least authors of novels have nothing to worry about. During George Orwell's 1984, the'Proles' were reading volumes produced by a computer, but a computer will hardly be able to substitute Margaret Atwood.

Finally, we turn partly to writing to broaden our knowledge of the state of man, and its fascination is derived both from the writer's own living personal and creative work. Although a series of zeros and ones develops to help us comprehend what it means to enjoy a baby formula later in our lives or to sense the first dash of early morning sun when a long winters relaxes its grasp, this algorithms will not really be able to know such adventures.

Because of all these factors and more, a robotic could never compete with a flesh-and-blood novel writer. There is an argument for a technique that allows us to slow down, correct our orthography for us and draw our attention to nagging styles such as repetitions of words, but at the same it learns from us.

Use the what-if-maschine. It is the founding of an internationally renowned group of specialists in Webining, Web Intelligence and the production of stories, metaphors and humor, led by Simon Colton of Goldsmith's College, University of London. Someone has to pick the gender and then pick some other detail from a drop-down menu before the engine gives out a gnomish call to creativity.

However, the machines are studying, and they are oriented towards people. As the What-If engine gets better, I hope it will be simpler to use the term'imaginative' to describe what the program does," Colton said in an e-mail with researcher Dr. Maria Teresa Llano Rodriguez (and without algorithms, they say).

While they seem to be great illustrations of how much machinery doesn't get it, Kazemi, a Thomas Pynchon enthusiast, is also the creator of National Novel Generation Month or NaNoGenMo - the technical reposte to National Novel Writing Month in the US. It was proposed via Twitter in 2013, and it started immediately, his only rule is that participants must divide a novel with more than 50,000 words along with the source text that created it.

Kazemi acknowledges that NaNoGenMo's work requires a different level of personal commitment and that the most effective are a sizable number. The Seeker by enthricedotted is one of his favorites, which makes the storyteller as a robotic trawler WikiHow to become more persona. "There' s a great deal of personal feedback coming from WikiHow, which is full of personal text," he told me about Skype from Boston.

It also points out that the authors of the algorithm contribute their own personal experience to the encoding and thus add a necessarily mortal one. Does he think that a computer could produce a really great novel - one that goes beyond its own novel? "He says, "I think bot and the significance of what is a good novel will come together.

"but I think we're already creating coding that generates really great conceptional fiction. I' m actually enthusiastic about books written between people and cipher. "So far, he has not been addressed by pro writers of fiction, only by children who need the codes for their schoolwork.

They' re not good at disappearing and resurfacing 78 pages later, and without recruiting from a data base, they can't impressively incorporate sensorial details. Until today our notions of AI are largely influenced by literature people. Songwriters are playing an increasingly important part in the navigation through the implication of a beautiful new realm that will at last catch up with literature fantasy, whether or not they shoot up the best-seller list by 2020.

Isn' t there a novel in there?
