J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter books played a pretty big part in my life; I am part of the Harry Potter generation after all. The very first book came out in 1997 when I was an 8 year old and the 7th book was released the year I graduated high school. Like the millions of other fans, much of my formative years were spent consuming HP. Not to mention all the times I have re-read and re-watched the movies as an adult. I just love Harry Potter OK!!
This week there was 3 page chapter written titled Harry Potter and the Portrait of what Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash, although this time the author isn’t Rowling.

Botnik Studios used Artificial Intelligence trained on all seven Harry Potter books to ghostwrite this chapter. The company refers to this process as “collaborating with machines,” and it mixes the creativity of humans with the absurdity of machines trying to imitate us. The result are, well, pretty magical.
“The password was ‘BEEF WOMAN,’ Hermoine cried.”
“Ron was going to be spiders. He just was. He wasn’t proud of that, but it was going to be hard to not have spiders all over his body after all is said and done.”
There are some gems, check out the hilarious lines from the “new chapter.”
Happy reading Potter Heads.
