Is AI ready to replace human writers?
I also found the article a little boring. There were no skimmable elements like sub headers, bullet points or even a few bits of simple formatting like bold. Maybe I just have a super short attention span but if I can't skim an article I probably won't read it...
Also, how do we *know* that what the AI has written here is all factual and correct? That's something that bothers me about people using AI to write their content. Perhaps it should be mandatory for people to add a disclaimer to their posts if it was written by AI. If I read a piece of content from someone that I know and trust to be an expert, it's likely that I will trust that their content is accurate. But if I know a piece is written by AI I can decide if I want to trust the work....
Kind of scary thought for writers... but inevitable. If I hadn't known it was AI, that wouldn't have occurred to me. But I would not have really enjoyed the article. It seemed more like a series of points, or chunks, that provided information as a whole, but I felt something was lost. Maybe I was biased because I was told it was written by AI.
I think what I was feeling, the reason the article wouldn't have resonated with me, is that there was no STORY. There was not a trajectory. There was a lot of relevant information, but the author seemed irrelevant. There is a reason we love some blogs and don't care about others. The common element? The difference in authors and what they put into it. Their heart, their experience, their biases, their emotions, their style, these all add flavor to the raw information. Thanks for the experiment, it was interesting! David (a real live person)
I use jasper multiple times a week to help me create content. I don’t relay on the tool to create the entire piece of content. But you can add more personality to the AI output using tone of voice, heck you can even tell it to sound like Oprah.
I find it extremely helpful to overcome writers block, especially when I’m writing content for clients in an area that I’m not an expert in.
At this point, a human still needs to be at the wheel and keep the AI on the track that you want. But it’s really an amazing tool for solo operators that need to maximize their efficiency.
I will say though, sometimes it just sucks at a prompt and returns some nonsense.
A serious AI writer could use this as a beginning point. It's reached the point of usefulness, which ain't nuttin.
I can see the potential, but this article made my eyes glaze over and skim most of it. Until bots can inject personality, humor, and wit, I don't think good human writers are at risk of being replaced.
No soul. Granted, as AI evolves, it will no doubt become indistinguishable from a real person’s writing. Which means, in the future, we’ll never know if the content is original or computer generated/assisted. Thus diminishing our humanity a little more. Just like how social media has everyone glued to the digital world instead of the real one.
I'm most impressed by the sentence style and adherence to writing conventions. The content is repetitive and paragraph structure is formulaic, but I'm surprised by how far the AI has come. I teach writing in college, and most of my freshman aren't at this level.
Interesting to see how far it’s come. As a computer programmer, I can’t imagine the code behind it.
At this point, like with all tech advances in our history, it’s up to us to figure out how to use it and the first who do will make a lot of money.
Yea it’s dry and lacking soul or direction, but that could easily be remedied by a human writer, or by some more inputs and algorithm tweaking i’m sure. The fact that it’s *intelligently* written and could pass for a low-grade human writer is what’s intriguing, and also potentially threatening to writers (and all humans who seek to communicate ideas).
It reminds me of how so many crappy blogs/articles these days are just based on secondary or tertiary sources and can’t actually be trusted. Is it really that different to hire a bot vs a random writer who doesn’t actually know what they’re talking about? Reliable sources are going to become even more important ahead, and this will strengthen the power of the individual. But then “reliable” AI sources are likely to become more established and fight back too.
Which leads me to this: i predict humans will be in a complex international cold war with the bots within a decade. But who will win? The ones who learn to use the tech to their advantage (as the bots would have us believe) or those who’ve figured out how to keep them safely contained and under control?
There will definitely be important choices coming up Christian, thanks for sharing.
This was written by A.I. as Martin Scorsese --> "Is AI ready to replace human writers? It depends on what you need a writer for. If you need someone to write a short news article or generate a report from data, then AI could be a good option for you. However, if you need someone to write a novel or create original content, then AI is not yet ready to replace human writers."
This is written by a Human, me ---> Well there you have it! Thank you, A.I. Martin!
I don’t think it’s intelligent but it’s definitely artificial. I tend to look at writing that answers my questions without droning on.
Yuck yuck yuck.
I've definitely noticed strange keyword targeted blog posts that I've assumed were AI written. They tend to repeat themselves and lack any sort of interesting opinion.
It's like you mention below, what's the point? Why are we creating AI written content for humans to read? Are we really lacking things to read? haha!
Justin Jackson did an interesting email on this recently too.
Might bring you research and messaging, and you can take it from there with your own voice.
I missed that the article was written by AI despite the title "This was written by AI". What can I say, first cup of coffee. BUT, get this... at the end, I asked you (in my mind). So, what did you conclude? Can AI write like a human? Ha!
I went to Jasper and tried to create an account. The sign up process was ok. BUT!!!! It ground to a halt when it insisted on a second step verification by a text to a cell phone number that I no longer have. Although tangential, you should write an article on the impact of second-step verification on commerce. If you are like me, you have bailed on sign-ins and even purchases because the sign in or check out process was off. I wonder if merchants lose more business by abandoned carts than fraud. Banks are usually on the hook for that anyway.
But, I will try again. Writing content is a Bottleneck - for me, anyway. My content is legal substantive. But, SCOTUS is starting to look like toddlers with crayons. Could a machine do any worse?
