The Amazon book section is increasingly hosting texts about AI. This would not be a problem, if many of them were not written by the AI itself, which in addition to generating texts also generates biographies and images of imaginary authors that can deceive a distracted observer. If artificial intelligence writes tomes about itself, it would not be a big problem, but novels, guides, biographies written entirely by technology, without real editors and publishers behind it can become. According to The New York Times, these texts range from travel to economics, medicine, mathematics, religion and cooking.
A striking example is "Fire and Fury: the story of the 2023 Maui fire and its implications for climate change" written by the fictional "Dr. Miles Stones" and appeared on the e-platformcommerce and then disappeared a few weeks later for the complaint of some experts.
The greatest danger behind the texts written by AI is unreliable information. There are many examples of guides to distinguish edible mushrooms from poisonous ones distributed in the network. The problem is that these texts are revised and contain incorrect and often dangerous information.
There are also cases of books written by artificial intelligence attributed to existing writers, but not approved. For fear that this phenomenon will spreaded like wildfire George R.R. Martin, Authors Guild and 17 other known authors have filed lawsuits against OpenAI company owner of ChatGPT, for copyright infringement, for the use of their books for training of his chatbot.
However, its impact is both positive and negative, and the figures and statistics reflect this duality.
