Here’s another possibility: using old books to create new ones.
Specifically, I’m talking about tapping into the goldmine of existing public domain works to create new and exciting books using the power of AI.
Using public domain material can actually have a couple of benefits compared to completely AI-generated material.
1) Many of these public domain works are classic books filled with timeless stories. They are truly remarkable pieces of literature, the likes of which cannot simply be created from scratch by AI.
2) It is possible to leverage the fame and demand for many of these well-known authors and titles, by creating adaptations.
For example, Beatrix Potter stories will remain popular for the rest of our lifetimes. Because her work is in the public domain, it is possible to capitalize on it by adding a new spin.
Many famous books and movies of today are adaptations or retellings of old stories. Based on my initial research, it seems that we are early enough in the AI game that it has not yet been used much for this purpose. In other words, the market is wide open for AI-assisted modern adaptations of old stories.
Here is a free tutorial I created to show some ways to create new books using public domain works and AI:
