I’ve just read two blog posts on creating written content programatically. The first was the article How I automated my writing career by Robbie Allen. This article gives a brief description of how the author’s company generates web-site content automatically using the quantitative analysis of data.
The second blog post is about generating a Monty Python parody using markov chains. Even though the code is very simple, it generates very convincing nonsense!
How long will it be before the prose in our stories, the plots on our TV series, the lyrics in our songs are all machine generated?
