The NYT bestseller page ( https://www.nytimes.com/books/best-sellers/ ) lists the top five sellers in 11 different categories. Will this page list one book making a serious claim to be written by an AI before the end of 2023?

This may still resolve YES if a human editor in involved in the publication.

99%+ of bestselling books have had a human editor that's not the author take at least one pass at revision of the text. Would that disqualify an otherwise prompt-to-printed-page AI submission?

@PipFoweraker I think that we have to allow an editor of some sort; but if I think that it's a case of an author claiming to have 'just acted as editor' I might still resolve NO (e.g., I might doubt it if Stephen King 'edits' a book 'written' by an AI unless there's some supporting evidence).

However, this is arguably a change in resolution criteria, so if anyone wants to argue otherwise, please do so here, the earlier the better.

predicted NO

@Duncn Seems like a reasonable approach, cheers
