What are some ways humans can cope against the threat AI tools pose?
AI content seems like its choking the world. This how we could combat it.
The first thing in stopping the influence of AI over humans is by isolating its work from that of humans. CHAT-GPT is the latest and the most powerful tool in the text generative scene that according to some has promised writers to lose their jobs.
Is writing really dead? Are computers that have not lived a unique life like yours able to generate content better than you?
Simple answer - NO.
Writing has been here for millennia, and it has gone through its evolution. This step too is not a real threat. At least if you are an original creator. This is my word, and I am a professional earning writer!
But we need to take precautions to make sure that writers stay protected. No one wants to read AI spam, but if we are not able to curb the influx of this content on a massive scale, writing is going to suffer.
Here are some steps that I think we can implement to build up the current state of writing,
If we can separate what has been generated by AI and what has been created by humans, we can make a demarcation line. Like it is in the game of chess, where computers are too ahead of humans. Chess is still a very interesting and growing sport in spite of it being completely overrun by computers.
No human has ever been able to beat a modern engine. The engines produce very challenging and creative lines that far outmatch the capability of humans. Computers are simply put just better in every way.
How has chess still remained functional?
The answer lies in its isolation. You cannot use chess engines to play real games. There are analytic engines in the background of major websites which measure your moves compared to the moves that computers suggest. With this data, they are able to map your playstyle of the game. With this personalized model, they then run your inputs and predict whether you have actually cheated in the game or not. While it is not a full-proof method at least immediately, cheaters always get caught down the line.
Method of detection
AI content is soon going to be everywhere. It is going to flood the internet. If you have used these tools you would know that produce really verbose content with little to no meaning. But because of their low input cost, companies are going to use that content all over the place.
This sucks for readers and overall users, much like how AI chatbots came into the picture.
And I can see humans start getting frustrated by the content. This is why we need to separate it. Separating content just by looking at the content is simply not enough. These sorts of ML/AI-based checkers can be easily bypassed. We need another control point which is understanding how an article was written.
If we can understand, isolate and run analytics on how users wrote an article we can screen away more content. No one is denying that AI tools cannot be used for inspiration. Go ahead and use them all you like. But when you are actually publishing real articles meant for real people, it is not okay to just post some AI-generated content.
I hope you understand this threat that AI possesses. But if we can implement the solutions I provide we can save ourselves from this onslaught of spam.
Of course, there is no denying that these AI tools are very powerful. And you can definitely find great inspiration by using them.
But copy-pasting their generated content to make it force it down user's throats is not acceptable.
The human-written tag will very soon be very important, so watch out for it on dArticle.io
