The use of artificial intelligence (AI)
The Hollywood Writers Guild announced the end of the force measure in a statement. “We can say, with great pride, that this agreement is exceptional, with significant benefits and protections for writers in all sectors of the membership,” said the Writers Guild of America (WGA).

Given this, it was agreed that AI cannot write or rewrite literary material, nor will it be considered a source, so that technology has no option to discredit a writer and his or her rights.
