Recent advances in artificial intelligence’s (AI) capacity to produce writing that passes for humans have been remarkable. Thus, corporations and organisations increasingly use AI writing to produce anything from marketing text to financial reports.
Although artificial intelligence (AI) writing is still in its infancy and has a long way to go before replacing human authors, it already presents a severe threat to the industry. After all, if a computer programme can generate writing that is indistinguishable from that of a human writer, then there is no need to employ a human to perform the job.
Content writing is only one example of a low-skilled occupation that AI might replace. Journalism and book writing are two examples of highly skilled occupations that may be vulnerable to automation in the future. One Japanese firm has already created an AI that can outwrite human novelists.
It will be some time before AI writing is on par with human writing in all fields and forms. The day robots can perform our jobs better than humans is becoming closer as technology advances.
Let me explain why it is incorrect:
The primary issue with having AI do our writing is that writing is more than just writing. Literacy entails being able to read, write, and think critically, of which writing is a part.
Writing requires editing, which helps to clarify ideas. It’s how we’re thinking. We express our opinions through the work that we do. Reading our writing helps us see flaws in our reasoning or, at the very least, our writing style. We revise until every little nuance of our ideas is captured on paper. This skill depends on our capacity to evaluate, create, make sound judgements, and advance in our personal and professional lives.
When we increasingly rely on automated writing tools to convey our thoughts, we lose the ability to think critically and analytically, and our literacy levels decline.
Conventions like emojis are already assaulting the critical mind. By substituting cartoons for words, we can convey generalisations rather than particular ideas.
The Need for AI Human Interaction
AI-generated content has a lot of human input. Most importantly, someone needs to review the facts of anything AI writes. You can’t put all your faith in AI authors, right? (at least yet).
AI writers may speed up the process but can’t replace a human’s ability to bring genuine value to the work.
Not only are fact checks necessary, but your work, including AI, may need further editing and proofreading.
To make a blog article readable and helpful, the author must format the text and include photographs, descriptions, and links, among other things.
Although AI can’t read my mind, it can take my suggestions and turn boring bullet points into something interesting to read. Again, I’ve just saved myself ten or so seconds. But I did a hard job by visiting the eatery in question and writing a review of my experience there.
Deficiency of Originality
The need for originality in blog articles written by AI is one of the main negatives. Artificial intelligence algorithms can produce literature from data and trends, but human authors need more inspiration and originality. This may lead to formulaic and unoriginal writing, which readers may find less fascinating and engaging.
Inadequate Contextual Knowledge
The information produced by AI writing tools is often inaccurate and poorly crafted because of the technologies’ poor grasp of context and subtlety. A computer programme may not understand the nuance of a sentence or the difference between two words that sound the same but have distinct meanings, for instance. Because of this, the final product may need to be corrected, deceptive, or difficult to understand.
Commits a Plethora of Errors
AI authors produce many inaccuracies. This may be difficult to see at first, but as you work with AI more, you’ll see how frequently it makes apparent blunders.
The more obscure the subject matter, the more errors there will be.
Artificially intelligent writing models are trained to seem credible. AI may be just as compelling in its writing when it is entirely incorrect.
If you need to learn about the subject, this makes verifying facts very difficult. Because of the AI’s realistic tone, spotting the factually wrong text elements in AI-written material might be challenging.
Factually correct writing requires meticulous attention to detail. In my experience, there are instances when it’s simpler to create a blog article without the help of AI because of how badly it screws up.
