Artificial intelligence is increasingly finding its way into the business world, and the publishing industry is no different. In fact, many different publications are already incorporating AI into their practices. Here are four ways you can expect to see publishers use AI in the near future.
1. Automating Tedious Tasks
AI is currently used by some scientific publications to catch plagiarism, find peer reviewers, and identify statistical errors. Other time-consuming tasks such as validating sources and fact-checking may soon be automated, too, freeing up authors for more important work.
2. Automating Story Content
Some articles require the personal touch of an experienced journalist. Others don’t need quite the writerly flourish. Publishers will increasingly use algorithms to create articles that highlight statistics or other basic information, such as financial reports and sports recaps.
3. Improving Content Distribution
AI can boost constituent engagement with your website. For example, it may help you decide the best time to email a specific message to an audience, increasing click-throughs or other transactions. It may also help you send individualized content tailored to the interests of each constituent.
4. Evaluating Material
Approving a manuscript can be stressful for an editor, with human hunch being the main indicator of success. AI can compare an unpublished piece of work with a group of bestsellers to pinpoint their shared traits and evaluate whether or not the new book has potential to engage readers.
