Why did we launch The Writers' Room?

The development of humanoid conversational interfaces – like Soul Machines hyper-realistic Digital People – and commercial nascence of NLU/NLG technology has demanded a new genre of copywriting: conversational creation. At Soul Machines, we believe this kind of writing can be taught and crowdsourced, engendering a multiplicity of new voices for our Digital People.

We invite folks of all backgrounds to become Soul Machines Certified Conversationalists. This means applying conversational best practices to design engaging, relatable digital personalities imbued with non-linear narratives. In this course, you’ll learn the skills needed to write compelling conversational content for our Digital People. Once you become an accredited Conversationalist, you could be invited to enter our marketplace, bid on paid-for gigs, and be compensated for your work.
