Sudowrite

Solving writer's block with AI

Where? USA

What? 
An AI -powered creative writing app based on OpenAI's GPT-3 transformer. Designed to overcome writer's block rather than take the writer's place,​ Sudowrite starts with a prompt of a sentence or paragraph then suggests ways the story could continue. The online tool offers preset filters (e.g. "Show, not tell") like an Instagram for text. Users can even give the program their own style suggestions. 
Sudowrite shows how AI can be a lever for creativity, helping humans find new ideas rather than replacing them.
