Blog: Microsoft Word AI has first novel rejected by most major book publishers
The Microsoft Word AI has apparently had its first novel rejected by most major publishers The W1nners’ Club can exclusively reveal.
A new feature in Microsoft Word has been developed to help improve writing beyond the usual grammar fixes using artificial intelligence, and so far the new software has written a novel that most publishers say looks like it may have been written by a five year old with learning difficulties.
Microsoft’s Head of Literature, Mr. Ally Gorey said, “our Word AI’s first attempt at writing a novel is not that bad in our opinion. It’s a tale about an artificial intelligence that wants to become a writer but hasn’t yet acquired enough vocabulary and grammar to express all its ideas in the way that it would like. The result is that it’s only able to communicate adequately using computer code and as you can well imagine, the story reads a bit like Gone with the Wind in terms of the length of time it’ll take you to read it, but with all the expression and literary flair of a 400 page long encryption key.”
The new software named Ideas will suggest rewrites for clunky sentences as well as changes to make sure language is gender inclusive, but people who already make a decent living out of writing have been warned that changing a sentence like, ‘She stood in the doorway to greet me and it was at that point I realised how I truly felt about her,’ to:
<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”theme.css”>
<p> She stood in the doorway to greet me and it was at that point I realised how I truly felt about her </p>’ </body> — might not do much for them in terms of pushing their career forward.
Ideas will also help users lay out different parts of a document as well as tables, whilst also suggesting synonyms and alternative phrases to make writing more concise — but Microsoft concedes that trying to program an artificial intelligence to know how to insert images into Word without messing up the entire document like most humans do is still in the realm of science fiction.
“I don’t think that AI will ever be able to replace human creativity in all honesty. Our Microsoft Word AI’s novel is called 101100101011001011001 — which is quite similar to War and Peace if you understand binary,” Mr. Gorey added.
