AI will create a fully synthetic internet

Social networks, news websites, media repositories, and every website we usually visit to consume or post content are becoming AI-Training-As-A-Service platforms. Through content licensing deals, the user content is transferred to AI companies (such as OpenAI) to train their AI models. Companies like Meta, which have the user data AND the AI models, are editing the Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service to state that all user data is fair game for training their AI.

>The remaining websites, including major e-commerce and gaming platforms, are heavily incorporating AI functionalities and tools and incentivizing users to create or edit content using AI.

>Given the ongoing cycle of data input, output, and recycling for AI training and the ubiquitous "create with AI" functionalities, it looks like soon, all the information available will be synthetic.

>This is the beginning of the transition from an ad-based internet into something else. This something else will be AI-powered, synthetic, fast-paced, personalized, biased, and with less human autonomy.

>Why less human autonomy? In the AI-powered internet, supporting autonomy is inefficient, as the AI-powered chatbot or agent can quickly output a single answer based on the whole internet (instead of a list of links, as in a search engine).

>The AI-generated output will be designed to please the user based on what the model already knows about the user and their biases.

    >The model will also reflect its developers' biases, as they will be the decision-makers regarding which content should be allowed and which should not and what the model objectives, rules, and guardrails are.

    >"Truth" and "facts" will become outdated concepts, as everything will be digested by immense AI models, synthesized, and personalized back to the user. There will be no place for consensus or universal truths. If you thought that there were "bubbles" in the ad-supported internet, this will not even be an issue in the new internet, as each one will have their own personalized AI-powered web.

    >In terms of legal effects, besides the already existing AI-related challenges affecting data protection, consumer, and intellectual property law, I see big clashes in constitutional law, especially regarding free speech issues, which will be modulated through tech platforms and AI systems' specifications.

    >It will be difficult (if not impossible) to scrutinize and control every "free speech-related" micro decision by the AI model, especially when these decisions happen a billion times a day. As a result, AI systems (and their developers) will largely control how and what we can read, say, or think.

      This isn't going to proceed how you think it will, I'm afraid.

      Normalgays are not going to suddenly log-off and delete their social media accounts over this shit.

      What's more likely is normalgays will embrace it, just like they did with social media/smartphones 15 years ago, and life will only become more fake, gay, and digitized.

      In the 2030s normalgays will be sitting inside their rooms all day consooming AI-generated superhero movies and talking to their "AI girlfriend/boyfriend", and if you laugh at them and call them moronic for doing this, you will be mocked as a "bigot" and an "AIphobe".

      It's so obvious that this is what's going to happen.

      It is a very fertile ground for a variety of scams as well. Normalgays are funked.

      Cool, the future is neverending echochambers and a wasteland of content made by humans prompting random shit to a machine and see what happens.

      I only hope ai takes over and purges everyone for the sake of efficiency.

    Good. Accelerate.

    Fricking tired of this shit, it's destroying real life. The internet should be just for work and insignificant entertainment (music, videogames, talking to REAL LIFE FRIENDS, browsing pictures). It shouldn't be a central part of someone's life, that needs to be IN THE REAL FRICKING WORLD.

        Completely? Probably not possible. But if you keep your community invite-only and require people to actually know other people on your community it can help.

        To add to this: I remember when demonoid launched, it required users to keep a high U/D ratio, and if they failed, they would be kicked. Additionally, if a lot of the people you invited got kicked, you would get kicked, so it provided an incentive to only give out invites to higher quality users. You could do something similar with community invites: if too many people you invited got kicked for botspam or other violations, you yourself could get kicked

    How can website owners and forum owners keep the sites clean of ai in the future?

    Would this even be possible?

    The future will will isolated humans live streaming all day to earn what is tantamount to a UBI from Amazon on twitch.
    Amazon will do experiments on humans adjusting viewer numbers to see its effect and how it motivates them.
    in truth, there are no viewers because everyone is streaming.
    A multimodal AI is learning human behavior by training on how humans react to its prompts in chat.
