Artificial Intelligence Assistants for this Work (i.e. chatbots specifically for this work)

OpenAI now have a GPT Store (1/10/24). Introducing the GPT Store . This hosts GPTs which are 'helpers' configured to specific resources, tasks, or data. To have access to these, a user has to be a subscriber to GPT Plus. The lowest tier subscription for this at present is $20 a month. Apparently, there are more than three million GPTs available.

There will be other helpers for the book, as the developer technologies become more widely available. These additional assistants will probably be from other manufacturers, and probably use large language models.

There are those who think that these chatbots/assistants are the future of (non-fiction) books. See, for example, Tyler Cowen's example of a generative book GOAT: Who is the Greatest Economist of all Time and Why Does it Matter?
