ChatGPT launches boom in AI-written e-books on Amazon

Using the AI software, which can generate blocks of text from simple prompts, Schickler created a 30-page illustrated children’s e-book in a matter of hours, offering it for sale in January through Inc's AMZN.O self-publishing unit.


In the edition, Sammy the Squirrel, crudely rendered also using AI, learns from his forest friends about saving money after happening upon a gold coin. He crafts an acorn-shaped piggy bank, invests in an acorn trading business and hopes to one day buy an acorn grinding stone.


"The Wise Little Squirrel: A Tale of Saving and Investing," available in the Amazon Kindle store for $2.99 - or $9.99 for a printed version - has netted Schickler less than $100, he said. While that may not sound like much, it is enough to inspire him to compose other books using the software.


Taiwan defeats the Netherlands 9-5 at the World Baseball Classic

The Dutch team established an early lead, but Taiwan took the score to 1-1, CNAreported. From there, Taiwan fortified its position and never looked back, reaching 5-1 by the bottom of the second inning.


The Netherlands clawed back to 5-2 at the top of the third inning but soon faced a renewed effort by Team Taiwan, with the inning ending at 7-2 in favor of the hosts. Chen Chieh-hsien (陳傑憲) took the team’s lead up to 8-2 in the fourth inning.


The score did not change again until the eighth inning, when Juremi Profar and Wladimir Balentien helped the Dutch team reach 8-4. However, before the end of the inning, Taiwan’s Lin Li (林立) added a point, with the Dutch making a last desperate effort to reach 9-5.

比數一直保持不變,直到第八局,Juremi Profar和Wladimir Balentien幫助荷蘭隊追至8比4。然而,在該局結束前,台灣的林立加入了一分,荷蘭隊最後拼盡全力,以9比5落敗。

The Dutch team had come out on top of Pool A by beating Cuba 4-2 and Panama 3-1, while Taiwan lost to Panama 12-5 before defeating Italy 11-7, holding second place in the pool tied with the Italian team.
