You make a great point here and are 100% right. It is seen as a cool thing, which I find kind of sad... But maybe this is the world we will live in 10 years down the road, a world where everything is artificial, and the real human touch to any aspect of life is missing.I see where you're coming from, but don't you think it's too early for AI content? It's rarely mentioned in the media and usually they focus on audio or video.
There has to be a precedent first, a company that becomes exposed and gets bad press. But unless there's a whistleblower, AI content is hard to prove. And it'll only become more and more sophisticated.
Right now AI content generation is seen more as a cool thing, something to wonder of. See this NY Times author how he proudly admits of generating AI content:
"I even used GPT-3 to write a book review for this paper last year — and, had I not clued in my editors beforehand, I doubt they would have suspected anything."
Imagine this scenario: Google embraces AI content to the fullest, and instead of showing websites in search results, it will simply shown long answer for each query (with pictures and everything), generated real-time with the help of AI from actual results, on top of the SERPs. 95% of people will just read that and barely anybody will click the results. That would be an end of blogging as we know it today...
I am someone with a sense for quality writing & cinema, be it in any genre. For me it is easy to spot AI content, or shit content , in general.
And it isn't hard to prove either when it comes to websites that use it: Often the only thing you have to do is looking at the number of posts published n a certain period... If a website publishes 5K articles/month, it isn't hard telling that it wasn't a result of a human effort, no? .
