Jonathan Franzen Will Save Us From The Computers

“As algorithms turn more of the subjective domain of human creativity into objective tasks, some observers worry about cultural homogeneity. Are we doomed to a future of uniform harmonies and standardized sentences? Hopefully not, but the advent of creative machines certainly will make it harder for humans to stand out. It may be that only distinct and exceptional talents — Nirvana, the Coen Brothers, Jonathan Franzen — will be able to defend our claims to creative superiority.”
 — Uh, okay.
