The Effectiveness of Using AI Engines to Write Articles

Jon Christian writes the following in “CNET’s Article-Writing AI Is Already Publishing Very Dumb Errors” for Futurism:

Last week, we reported that the prominent technology news site CNET had been quietly publishing articles generated by an unspecified ‘AI engine.’

The news sparked outrage. Critics pointed out that the experiment felt like an attempt to eliminate work for entry-level writers, and that the accuracy of current-generation AI text generators is notoriously poor. …

After the outcry, CNET editor-in-chief Connie Guglielmo acknowledged the AI-written articles in a post that celebrated CNET's reputation for ‘being transparent.’ …

[W]e couldn’t help but notice that one of the very same AI-generated articles that Guglielmo highlighted in her post makes a series of boneheaded errors that drag the concept of replacing human writers with AI down to earth.

For more information, read the article.
