I totally get why there are such strict restrictions on AI dealing with “provocative” topics, but it sure does make it difficult for me to use it to develop the novel I’m working on.
I have to be really careful about the subject matter addressed in individual scenes because if it has anything too spicey or colorful in it, all the AI options simply balk and won’t have anything to do with it.
But, like I said, I get it. I understand why. It’s just annoying.
And, yet, really, the more I use AI for novel development, the less I think it’s very useful. Occasionally AI will spit out something that is really helpful, but usually it either doesn’t understand what I need from it, or the suggestions it provides are just dumb.
But I will note that we’re still in the early stages of the LLM revolution. There remains a greater-than-zero-sum-chance that Hollywood as we know it will burn to the ground soon enough and there will only be Suits and Programmers left when the dust settles.
