As if it isn’t already difficult enough to win a literary contest, writers who submit fiction to The Nikkei Hoshi Shinichi Literary Award competition in Japan have to contend against robots.
As the LA Times reports, four out of more than 1,400 entries to the competition–which accepts submissions from robots as well as people and is named for Japanese Sci-Fi writer Hoshi Shinichi–were co-authored by computers. Although it didn’t win the award, one hybrid work was selected by blind judges to move on past the first round.
