The future is approaching and more and more jobs that robots can do better than us. This week we have discovered that at this stage they will even be able to replace a best-selling author, with a viral story about a chapter of Harry Potter written entirely by a bot. This chapter, entitled “The Handsome One”, has been generated by a predictive keyboard, previously fed with all the original work of JK Rowling, the original author of Harry Potter, and the result is to stay with the mouth very open.
The company Botnik Studios, a creative company that works with predictive keyboards, is responsible for the last known chapter of the saga of the young magician and not its original author. With the seven previous books by JK Rowling as reference, this tool offers suggestions inspired both by these texts and by the literary style and tone of the successful author to form sentences and build a story with them.

And, of course, the response of fans on social networks, excited to have more adventures of Harry, Ron and Hermione was not long in coming:
@Amy_Hayes5 This is without a doubt the best thing that I have ever read

All I want for Christmas is this book 😭

My favorite part of this is that Ron wears a Ron shirt and does Ron magic. Original Ron was boring, but this Ron deserves his own spinoff.

It is clear that this is a great solution if JK Rowling decides not to write about the most famous wizard in the world but fans need more and more new stories. Technology will come to throw us a cable, since we do not know to what extent magic can cause books to be written alone.
