This seems like an interesting type of machine learning, as the computer is taking the words of the writer and generates words that start to make sense, such that it simply imitates other authors. however, the drawback that he discussed makes even more sense. Writing is something that you can put your words in your own creative way. there is no one else who can really replicate it. and if novelists begin to use this type of machine learning, wouldn’t the works be rather bland? and even if the works aren’t, wouldn’t these novelist slowly lose the ability to have their own creative thoughts and write them down?

We can modify our behavior in realtime without fore knowledge of future happenings, computers must be programmed to behave the same way but only after an event.
