AI in the Book Industry: Reality or fiction?

Opportunities and risks of the ever growing influence of AI in the book industry

Artificial intelligence influences many aspects of life – without always being visible. Books as a cultural asset are also affected, both on the creative and consumer side. How powerfully are AI decisions already influencing the book market today? Are automatized processes involved in the reading and buying of books causing us to lose control over our data? Can software identify bestsellers before they are even published? If so, how is this changing books and the book industry?
