Their story generators can give you ideas for your next novel or screenplay, as well as generate customized content for businesses that need to create all kinds of copy. AI writers are not only good at generating words, but they are also good at generating emotions as well. So if your goal is to make people laugh or cry — these robots have got you covered.
