According to Salman Rushdie, AI may become more prevalent in composing scenarios and specific literary genres

Novelist Salman Rushdie stated in an interview that was published on Thursday in the French literary magazine NRF that generative artificial intelligence could become more prevalent in writing situations as well as in specific literary genres like science fiction and thrillers, according to AFP.

„The problem is that these devices learn very quickly. I think it is more worrying for genre literature, such as thrillers and SF, where what matters is not the originality of voice or language,” said the American-British writer.

„The same goes for screenwriters. Given that Hollywood constantly creates new versions of the same film, artificial intelligence could be used to conceive scenarios,” he continued.

However, from the perspective of the author of „The Satanic Verses,” authors such as himself have no desire to use artificial intelligence (AI) support and have no need to be concerned about potential copying.

The writer shared his findings following a paragraph that ChatGPT produced in answer to the request for „200 words in the style of Salman Rushdie.”

„The result was a fabric of nonsense. No reader who has read even a page written by me can believe that I am the author. It’s rather reassuring,” he said.

„The system is content to assimilate enormous amounts of text and to offer a new version. We find no originality. It seems to be completely devoid of a sense of humor. These are the major shortcomings,” according to Salman Rushdie.

Rushdie’s book „Le Couteau,” which recounts the account of the assassination attempt that occurred in August 2022 while the author was in Chautauqua County (northeast United States), will be published on April 18 by Gallimard, the publisher of NRF magazine.

Salman Rushdie has been under death threat since 1989 due to an Iranian fatwa against him after the publishing of „The Satanic Verses.”

In August 2022, the author was attacked with a knife at a literary conference in Chautauqua, New York. The attacker was an American national with Lebanese descent who was thought to have sympathies with Shiite Iran. The incident left the writer severely hurt and resulted in loss of vision in one eye.
