I think this was my favorite part.
"One innovative publisher, ICON Group International, has patented a system that automatically generates non-fiction books. Over 100,000 of these titles are now for sale at Amazon, according to a story at Singularity Hub. As the field of artificial intelligence increases, how long until novelists are disintermediated by machines? It's a preposterous idea worthy of science fiction."

Reminds of a Roald Dahl story where this is exactly what happens. Can't remember which though.
