    Apparently, for $97 a year, you can access an AI system that will build 'done-for-you' websites.

    No templates, no editing, no coding, no dragging/dropping.

    It claims to just 'happen', after you 'tell it what you want'.

    it'll be interesting to see where and how they'll end up after launch.

    I saw this about a year ago. Without looking too far into it, I'm going to just say that it would be extremely limited. I can't imagine the websites being anything more than HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

    Yes Pxoxrxn, i totally agree that we're advancing technologically, but i can't imagine an artificial intelligence machine building a website completely.. It would certainly be a "ready for use" website with just javascript, CSS and HTML, not to forget, all the websites would be the exact replica of each other..

    Talk about making google work easier for them to catch spam

    Seems I'm rather late to the party, then!

    And I agree entirely - it's not exactly AI... it's just a pre-programmed algo, like any other.

    It looks mostly geared towards people that have personal blogs and not commercial ones.

    I don't see where artificial intelligence plays a role. Anyone care to point it out to an old bird?

    Is there any info on the size of it? It looks like its going to be huge in size, which is probably going to be good for blackhatters since those people that use it will get lower rank.

    the problem is that those will not be "human" made site...another almost random software. this will be ok for first few 1000s sites, than all will be shitty (good for us) :)
