Basically, another chapter in the ‘artificial intelligence’ scare.
“The book-writing machine works simply, at least in principle. First, one feeds it a recipe for writing a particular genre of book – a tome about crossword puzzles, say, or a market outlook for products.

The computer uses the recipe to select data from the database and write and format it into book form.”
