Default Bot Books


Okay. So the question is a futuristic what if...then i'd do... sort of scenario and has been on my mind for months since reading about Internet bots that interact and can fabricate conversational responses that simulate a conscious human. A heavily experimented possibility waiting to flood the Internet most likely as net neutrality continues to be rewritten into the next policy --

The question is --

What would you do (if anything) as an author if you knew that robots were able to write books in moments of content plug-ins?

Should robots be able to write books? Should humanity be creating robots that write books? And what does this do to the industry of book writing? Especially if the world simply knew that (a lot/some) books were being written by algorithms instead of people?

I'm curious to know if anyone cares and what distance would they go to keep this from being accepted.
