More people use ChatGPT to create and publish books.

More and more people are using artificial intelligence program ChatGPT to create books for sale. Despite the slow sales so far, many writers are still worried that the books created by ChatGPT may harm the writing and publishing industry.

1. ChatGPT helps create children’s books.

Until recently, Schickler never thought that he could be a published writer. But after learning about ChatGPT artificial intelligence program, Schickler thinks he has a good chance.

ChatGPT logo appeared in March 2023.

The idea of writing a book seems to be finally possible. Using artificial intelligence software, Schickler created a 30-page illustrated children’s e-book in a few hours. He sold it through Amazon’s self-publishing section in January. The e-book titled The Wise Little Squirrel: A Tale of Saving and Investing made Schickler less than $100. Although this may not sound like much, it is enough to make him want to use the software to create other books.

As of mid-2000, there were more than 200 e-books in Amazon’s Kindle store that said ChatGPT was a writer or co-writer. And this number is rising every day. However, due to the nature of ChatGPT and many writers don’t admit that they have used it, it is almost impossible to fully count how many e-books AI can write.

2. Influence

Some professional writers began to worry about the possible impact of ChatGPT on the book publishing industry.

Mary Rasenberger is the executive director of the Writer Guild. She said: "This is what we really need to worry about. These books will flood into the market and many authors will lose their jobs." Rasenberger pointed out that the industry has a long tradition of ghostwriting, an accepted practice, that is, paying someone to write a book or give a speech in the name of another author. But she is worried that the ability to create with artificial intelligence may turn writing a book from an art into a commodity-a simple raw material that can be bought and sold.

Amazon did not disclose whether it plans to change or study the policy on the use of artificial intelligence or other automatic writing tools by authors. Lindsay Hamilton, a spokesperson for Amazon, said by email that books in stores must comply with its guidelines on "intellectual property rights" and other laws.

3. Quick release

Amazon is by far the biggest seller of physical books and e-books. Its sales in the United States account for more than half, and it is estimated that it accounts for more than 80% of the e-book market. In 2007, Amazon created Kindle Direct Publishing, so that anyone can sell and market a book without looking for a book agent or publishing house. Generally speaking, Amazon allows authors to publish without any supervision. Then, the company shares any money with the writer.

This service has attracted new artificial intelligence assistant writers like Kamil Banc to join Amazon. He told his wife that he could write a book in less than a day. Using artificial intelligence image creator ChatGPT and instructions such as "Write a bedtime story about pink dolphins and teach children how to be honest", Banc published a 27-page inserted book in July.

Since then, Banc has published two more books generated by artificial intelligence, including an adult picture book, and more works are being published. He said, "It’s actually very simple, and I’m surprised at its speed from concept to release.".

Not everyone is impressed by the software. According to reports, Mark Dawson sold millions of books written by himself through Kindle Direct Publishing. He said that ChatGPT-assisted novels were "boring", and boring meant boring.

Advantages-a commendable good quality-are very important in the book industry, and advantages play a role in how to recommend books to other readers. If a book gets a bad review because of its boring writing, it will soon sink to the bottom.

91 minutes to kill, 1-0! The national football team worked hard to create a miracle, advanced to the World Youth Championship, and celebrated like winning the championship.

Uzbekistan’s U20 Asian Cup has entered the quarter-finals, and the first match was between the Iranian men’s soccer team and the Iraqi men’s soccer team. In the end, relying on the goal in the 91st minute of the second half, Iraq eliminated Iran 1-0, becoming the first team to advance to the semi-finals, and at the same time locked in the qualification for the World Youth Championship. China’s men’s soccer team will play in the quarter-finals on the next match day, and the winner can also advance to the World Youth Championship against the Korean men’s soccer team.

In the history of the Asian Youth Championship, Iraq participated in a total of 17 competitions and won the championship five times in total. The last time was in 2000, and Iran also won the cup four times, but the winning experience was in the last century.

In the group stage, Iran scored 6 points with 2 wins and 1 loss. Finally, compared with Australia and Vietnam, the goal difference was superior to each other, and it won the first place in the group. Iraq scored 4 points with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, which forced Indonesia to lock in the second place because of the winning or losing relationship. According to the regulations of AFC, the top four teams in this tournament have advanced to the 2023 World Youth Championship, so whoever wins this game will be locked in the ticket for the World Youth Championship.

This is a close confrontation. The national team and the youth team of Iran and Iraq are in fierce confrontation. Now, the Asian Youth Championship is contested. The two teams did not rewrite the score in the first 90 minutes, and the scene is almost 50-50.

In the 91st minute, Ali Jassim broke into the restricted area with the ball and scored a goal from the far corner with a low shot, helping the Iraqi team to complete the lore 1-0. After the goal was scored, the players thumped and celebrated wildly, and then they roared to the sky and were very excited. After the game, the whole team celebrated like winning the championship.

The contest between China and South Korea will start at 18 o’clock tomorrow night, and the winner can also advance to the finals of the 2023 World Youth Championship.

According to statistics, the two teams have played against each other 18 times in history. The men’s soccer team in China has scored 3 wins, 2 draws and 13 losses, which is obviously at a disadvantage. At the same time, in the last 8 games, it has not won, and it has not won the Korean men’s soccer team for 18 consecutive years. In addition, compared with China’s men’s soccer team, the Korean men’s soccer team won the cup 12 times, which is the most successful team in the history of Asian Youth Championship, so it is very difficult to win by surprise.

Nevertheless, China men’s soccer players are not afraid of this opponent. It is reported that after the successful team of China Men’s Football Team qualified, they celebrated with the fans at the scene. The fans shouted loudly in the stands: "The next game is going to play South Korea", and some players responded: "Kill South Korea! We are going to the World Youth Championship! "

It is certainly a good thing to have confidence, which gives fans more expectation. The last time China men’s soccer team participated in the World Youth Championship was in 2005, and it has been 18 years since now.

Microsoft lets you chat with AI and help you develop applications.

Have you ever thought about chatting with artificial intelligence and even letting it help you develop applications? This may sound far away, but Microsoft has turned this wish into reality. Microsoft announced today that it will integrate the technology behind ChatGPT into its Power Platform platform, so that users can develop their own applications with little coding.

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence chat robot, which was developed by OpenAI. Once it was launched, it immediately became the focus of global attention, and now it has become the fastest growing consumer application in history. ChatGPT can generate smooth, interesting and logical dialogues according to users’ input, and even imitate the style and tone of celebrities. In 2019, Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI and obtained the exclusive license of GPT(ChatGPT Early Model).

Microsoft applied ChatGPT technology to its Power Platform, which is a low-code/no-code development platform for enterprises and individuals, including four sub-products: Power Apps, PowerAutomatic, Power BI and Power Virtual Agents. Users can create their own applications by simply dragging, selecting and inputting, without writing complicated codes.

Microsoft’s goal is to enable users to have a natural conversation with ChatGPT, so as to realize their own development needs. For example, users can tell ChatGPT that they want to create an application for inventory management, and ChatGPT can generate the corresponding application template according to the user’s description, and guide users to make subsequent customization and optimization. Users can also get application feedback, performance analysis and improvement suggestions through ChatGPT.

Microsoft said that the purpose of this technology is to enable more people to participate in the development of applications, regardless of whether they have programming skills. Microsoft believes that this will provide users with more creativity and flexibility, but also bring more efficiency and value to enterprises and individuals.

Ferdinand: Compared with Drogba, Torres is more difficult to deal with. It’s hard for you to play against him.

Live on March 10 th, Manchester United legend Ferdinand talked about Torres and Drogba on the FIVE Youtube channel. Ferdinand said that Torres is even more difficult to deal with.

Rio Ferdinand said: "Torres is difficult to deal with. I was talking about it the other day." He runs fast, strong, aggressive, flexible and does everything that makes you feel uncomfortable. "

"I actually talked to Benitez about him. He is really annoying on the pitch sometimes. But he is a great player. He sometimes stepped on my foot, and I had four or five cuts on my foot at halftime. This is even without the ball. "

"So he has an aggressive nature. But I like to compete with him. Drogba didn’t make me feel the game was difficult, but he scored an important goal against us. "

When asked which player he thinks is better, Ferdinand replied: "I will choose Drogba because he scored important goals, but Torres is even more difficult."

Asean Basketball League: Hong Kong Eastern battle into play-offs final, await opponents

Hong Kong Eastern are set to enjoy an extra day off before the Asean Basketball League (ABL) play-offs final tip off on Saturday.

But head coach Zeljko Pavlicevic played down the importance of any extra rest after the 2017 champions came from behind to defeat NS Matrix 76-70 at Nguyen Du Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday night, winning their semi-final series 2-0 against the Malaysian side.

In the other semi-final, Saigon Heat pushed the series to a decider with an 81-79 overtime win against Singapore Slingers, with Eastern’s opponents still yet to be confirmed.

“Yes, we will have one day off, then we will know who we will play and start making preparations like we always do,” veteran coach Pavlicevic said.

“These are experienced players who will be even more motivated under these kinds of situations. I do not want to say this is some kind of advantage.”

Facing a must-win game, NS Matrix – the only tournament debutants to reach the play-offs this season – came out more determined.
