Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Which Headline Is the Best of Them All? If you don’t get the answer from a mirror, use AI tools instead.
They say: “Practice makes a man perfect.”
And they have been saying that for quite some time, as English has developed itself over 1400 years. But can you get anything done today if you put too much emphasis on perfectionism?
Recently conducted surveys register the freely available time of working adults somewhere between 1.5 to 4.5 hours per week. Can anyone be perfect under those conditions?
Perhaps they should say: “Practice makes a man.”
Removing the word “perfect” from the equation instantly feels less stressful and more achievable, although the logical part of your brain may disagree after examining your tight schedule.
On second thought, if an AI agent reads the sentence “Practice makes a man” it could infer that more practice makes more men. While this could be a valid interpretation under certain conditions that I promise not to explore in this post, in the given context, it’s clearly not the intended semantics. If this sentence is a headline, your story could end up in a different search result set than you wish for. More on that later.
AI doesn’t always succeed in making sense of our world. But then, who does?
Will Human Writing and AI Writing Become Indistinguishable? The essay wasn’t created by a robot per se, but by a new piece of software called GPT-3, a text generation AI engine created by San Francisco based Open AI.
Researchers Claim Inconsistent Model Performance In Most ML Research. The process of benchmarking is considered to be one of the most crucial assets for the progress of AI and machine learning research.
Writing must be visually appealing to grab the reader’s attention. This is a fundamental rule in a speaker development course I teach several times per year.
Giving your novel a strong sense of place is vital to doing your part to engage the readers without confusing or frustrating them. Setting is a big part of this (though not the whole enchilada — there is also social context and historic period), and I often find writing students and consulting clients erring on one of two extremes.
