Journalist says company is using AI to write article and he cant compete

>An anonymous reporter recently published a first-person piece on Futurism regarding AI taking over the newsroom.
>The journalist currently works for Red Venture – the company that owns CNET, Bankrate, CreditCards.com, and others.
>And according to their account, CNET and Bankrate are now employing AI bots to publish articles.
>"The AI is here, and it’s pumping out articles — inaccurate, messily copied, poorly disclosed ones," the reporter writes.
>"At a rate that I probably couldn’t achieve even if I skipped sleep, gave up eating, abdicated all hobbies and responsibilities, and forwent all those other annoying little human things that seem to get in the way of the glorious goal of making my company money," they added.
>One of the biggest problems cited by the anonymous reporter is the quality of the AI-produced articles.
>Where a human freelancer might suffer the occasional typo, an article by an AI can be "total authoritative-sounding gibberish"," the journalist says.
>"The poor editor in charge of fact-checking whatever the Machine produces isn’t looking for a needle in a haystack; they’re faced with a stack of needles, many of which look remarkably like hay," they added.
>What's more, the companies were not very transparent with disclosing when they started publishing articles with AI.
>"The AI’s work is riddled with errors that will convince trusting readers to make bad financial decisions," they added. "It has the potential to be racist and biased. And it’s clearly plagiarizing from other sources."
>Many are concerned with AI taking over their jobs, and with the development of advanced chatbots like ChatGPT, now journalists are among them.

    all AI and genetic research must be banned
    even speaking about it should be banned, all books and research should be burned and scientists banished to an island in the pacific

      The company that hires him is able to make more money publishing inaccurate articles written by AI, than with quality ones written by humans.

    Should I fear AI taking my NEET job

      Absolutely.
      In the next decade, AI will make 5% or so unemployed.
      The rest are tradies, bureaucrats, nepotists, tax leeche meme wagies,
      neets, kids, pensioners.

        These 5% will compete for your gibs.

      No but you should fear all the working people who do suddenly demanding gibs and looking to long-term NEETs for that revenue stream. Basically they're going to take your cheques and you'll probably get the option to work a shitty job or go live in some sort of NEET concentration camp. What's bad for wagies on a massive scale can affect you too.

      This, the fact that they try to pretend the AI is the issue is funny.

    If you're already being replaced by the early stages of automation then your job didn't have much value to begin with.

    How exactly does an AI conduct research, collect evidence and interview people?
    It can't? So it's not a journalist complaining, but a "okay but change it up a little" professional

      AI generates links. Links generate clicks. All that research and interview shit is just wasted costs.
