    So, I’m going to be replaced by a robot?

    Posted By Alastair Otter

    A friend on Facebook just sent me this:

    Robot writer outperforms human 

    For a moment panic set in. After all these years it was going to come to this: me against a robot writer that doesn’t make spelling mistakes. What chance will I have? 

    And then I spotted it. The word “vanquished” in the auto-generated copy. No-one uses the word “vanquished”. At least no-one other than Japanese game shows about Ninja warriors.

    Looks like I still have time. But not much.
