Writers need to learn how to work with AI, not against it

Artificial intelligence (AI) writers are rapidly producing more of the content we read online, with little help needed from humans.

Lucinda McKnight, a Senior Lecturer from Deakin University, argues for the importance of learning how to work with AI — rather than against it — in an article published by The Conversation, In an AI world we need to teach students how to work with robot writers.

McKnight shares examples of texts produced by AI, and poses important ethical questions for writers, editors, students and educators as they navigate this technology.

It is inevitable that ‘robots’ will be able to produce content faster than any human. But can we learn to write alongside AI in collaboration rather than against it?
