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.

    There is so much computer-generated recycled trash on any given google search. The fact that it's mostly "traditional" algorithms and not "AI" doesn't matter in the fucking slightest to me.

    I didn’t read TFA but I was wondering what “digital content” meant. Ones and zeroes? Images? Videos? Emails/spam? Writing?

    Anyway. People at work were wowing over ChatGPT this week and showed me stuff with wide eyes. Yeah ok, I know a bit about CNNs and DL. I guess it did surprise me how far the native language models have come. But I’m concerned with it and the lack of any ethics standards around it. Where will this be in 2035, 2045+?

    Be interesting to see if it could rewrite itself. They taught it Python. Spawn a new instance of itself then talk together.

    Seriously, what is with those blogs and pages that are just generated chopped repeated chunks of existing sites?

      It's cheaper than actually paying writers and gets clicks.

      It's a byproduct of Google going with fast rather than good as the sole basis for designing their search algorithms. Even in the day they weren't great, but they were able to search more of the net. Unfortunately, there's a bunch of stuff that you used to be able to do that either aren't possible with Google or are very awkward. A lot of that has to do with Google making basically no attempt at understanding any of the pages that it indexes.
