January 18, 2024

The winner of Japan's most prestigious literary award has acknowledged that about "five percent" of her futuristic novel was penned by ChatGPT, saying generative AI had helped unlock her potential. "I made active use of generative AI like ChatGPT in writing this book," she told a ceremony following the winner's announcement. Going forward, she said she wants to keep "good relationships" with AI and "unleash my creativity" in co-existence with it. "So she wrote the book by deftly using AI ... Is that talented or not? "So this is how the Akutagawa laureate uses ChatGPT -- not to slack off but to 'unleash creativity'", another social media user wrote.
