There is something called chatGT or something like that floating around, I know of another peak oil forum that has been using it to write actual posts, you feed it a phrase to start with, and it builds a story around it. Seems to do okay, it isn't immediately obvious that it is a bot, it writes very similar to this bot.

whales are a perfect example as to why evolution is wrong. Nothing can evolve into something that enormous. There is no explanation for it getting that big. end of discussion

There are at least a couple "ghost writer" programs around that are marketed to new authors. You type in the first line or two of text and it writes the rest of the page of the story. You then read what it gives you and write the first line or two of the next page to direct the software in the direction you want the story to go. I have never used them myself and publishers are not fond of them either. Partly because for anything longer than a newspaper column or magazine article they tend to be easy to spot because they repeat the same type of scene in longer pieces. A romantic tryst in Chapter One might be duplicated in Chapter Five just because that is how the software knows to write romantic encounters. Lazy authors let the software repeat stuff and the story gets formulaic and boring pretty quickly. A less lazy author goes through the text and personalizes it changing scene elements and word choices, but the overall story is still pretty much the software formula chapter after chapter.

Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Political speeches come to my mind.

That aside it is an interesting topic. The tax codes likely need adjustment due to the wider introduction of robots and AI. They each displace workers who were formally tax payers who now become welfare consumers.

I am far from an expert but maybe some kind of VAT is appropriate.
