How AI Affects Authors

AI is taking the creative sector by storm – and not always in a good way. In light of recent news regarding the way Books3 trains its AI, we sat down with UNE lecturer and author Dr Sophie Masson to discuss creativity, the ways in which generative AI are trained, and why this is not the same as work done by a human hand.

Sophie explains that as an author, creativity comes with experiencing the world – something that AI cannot do.

“It’s also to do with your experiences with your life, with the way that you are alive in the world, with the way that you perceive the world. It’s to do with being in your body, it’s to do with so many things that only a human can have.”

“But a thing which isn’t sentient and which isn’t living doesn’t have that.”
