As the Krells would be all too happy to point out if they were still around, it's the Monsters From The Id that get you every time.

The only people who are going to suffer in this world are the creators who want to write a book properly. We won't be able to compete with an AI that knows us better than we know ourselves and can give us bespoke media that will fulfil our every wish.
This only applies if the reader doesn't know for sure whether the book was created by an AI or a human.

Human beings are now officially guinea pigs in the AI world

What happens when Alexa tries to mimic being a fun conversation buddy: murder, sex, etc. When will it start joking about people destroying public property or competitors products after recording dissatisfied customers rantings in the privacy of their own home.

The suggestion to murder someone came from a Reddit post that was quoted without context. So I guess if Alexa properly references the information, it's okay to have a mindless machine suggesting murder as a way to make yourself feel better. Is Reddit just another guinea pig customer for Alexa to play with? Or is it it two AI's going at it, fighting each other on the subliminal level. In that case, it's Reddit 1, Alexa 0 for seeing who can be made to look the most foolish.

How will Alexa handle the topic of exterminating vermin? Will it ever understand what doesn't constitute vermin. Will it relay information from a gangster's personal conversations on the best place to find a hit man to an inquiring soul, all based on local postal codes.

This is all being done to soothe peoples nerves. The wordplay is carefully manipulated and isn't being done to excite people. It's not being done to trick people into buying things they don't want. Perhaps that will be the whole point of AI created literature, not to inform, or entertain, but to simply maintain a normal mental attitude. Books can heal, or they can damage, it all comes down to the combinations of words, because there is nothing else in a book. In that respect it's a level playing field for anyone who wants to enter the competition.

Who mentioned VR plugging directly into the brain? And what if that VR AI learns to hide itself from you? You'll be a Gamehead...

The first sign of intelligence by a machine might happen when that machine tells the human operators that the results they are looking at are total garbage because the data being processed in the program is pure garbage.
