Researchers create 'malicious' writing AI

Saturday 05:09 GMT

A team of researchers who have built an artificially-intelligent writer say they are withholding the technology as it might be used for "malicious" purposes.

It shared some new research on using machine learning to create a system capable of producing natural language, but in doing so the team expressed concern the tool could be used to mass-produce convincing fake news. Which, to put it another way, is of course also an admission that what its system puts out there is unreliable, made-up rubbish.
