Generative AI, like OpenAI's ChatGPT, could completely revamp how digital content is developed, said Nina Schick, adviser, speaker, and A.I. thought leader told Yahoo Finance Live:

"I think we might reach 90% of online content generated by AI by 2025, so this technology is exponential," she said. "I believe that the majority of digital content is going to start to be produced by AI. You see ChatGPT... but there are a whole plethora of other platforms and applications that are coming up."

The surge of interest in OpenAI's DALL-E and ChatGPT has facilitated a wide-ranging public discussion about AI and its expanding role in our world, particularly generative AI.

[...] Though it's complicated, the extent to which ChatGPT in its current form is a viable Google competitor, there's little doubt of the possibilities. Meanwhile, Microsoft already has invested $1 billion in OpenAI, and there's talk of further investment from the enterprise tech giant, which owns search engine Bing. The company is reportedly looking to invest another $10 billion in OpenAI.

    since 99% of online content is produced by morons, having AI take over may actually improve things..

    Not if they're training the AI on the stuff written by the morons. Which is what they're doing.

      Opens up a lot of philosophical questions. I wonder what will happen when the AIs read other AI's writings. Will it lead to a Utopian set of solutions to human problems, or will it devolve? What biases are being written into the AI's processing? What priorities and goals, if any, are steering the AIs? Do they have, or might they develop ego and id? Will they develop their own language?

        None of the above. It will degrade. Imagine a stream of diarrhea stamping on a human face—forever.

        Probably not, the one time I know of where they had AI talking to AI they quickly started to speak their own language and the plug was pulled. I think this will probably always be the way that ends up, unless they're stuck sticking to an existent language, in which case don't expect any real creative expression.

    90% of online content is selfies, and pictures of lunch, and liking and re-tweeting other people's selfies and pictures of lunch. This could all be done by AIs, which would free up actual human beings to do something less mind numbing.
