Computer generated writing

This idea came through from a recent Search Marketing Expo: what happens when the computers take over and can start creating content?

This idea (which I’m sure somehow will redress the Turing Test), involves getting to a stage where computers can generate text-based content. This definitely fits in closely with SEO – most of the text generated is governed by a considerable rule-set (think keyword density, LSI and synonym placement).

However this idea is already upon us from other directions:

  • Computers have started writing business news for Thomson Media. Apparently Reuters does the same. Read more
  • The academic/avant-garde have picked up on the idea. Check out Grand Text Auto

So, is this a new paradigm in outsourcing? Let’s face it, even computers are cheaper than cheap Far East labour.
