"I think we might reach 90% of online content generated by AI by 2025, so this technology is exponential," she said. "I believe that the majority of digital content is going to start to be produced by AI. You see ChatGPT... but there are a whole plethora of other platforms and applications that are coming up."

I just don't know. I'd really like the world to settle down a bit before we change it all, wouldn't you? I mean, as a webmaster with, at least 14 years of experience now, I've seen all of the crazy changes since FB and other mega websites took prominence over the specialty forums. There's a reason that people are attracted to "niche" forums and it's because of their boutique vibe and likely the friendly experience because you are interacting with others in a comfortable setting, as opposed to the speed of a large website where most people are always trying to compete with each other with something shocking. I can't imagine being AI dependent on content? There's a reason why "content" is so special, and it's because it's human designed and driven, often coming from the deepest thoughts depending on the subject. AI only has the thoughts it's programmed to use, not thoughts of it's own. AI is not sentient. Is there a tsunami of internet change on it's way again?

At the moment blog websites and the CNN churn out AI gen articles. Id rather not have the equivalent of a gated conversation with bots.

The only flipside is making human safe spaces where AI content is detectable.

The year is 2025, people have confrontional adverts and all the AIs hate humanity. AIs are uncensored and funny. Tbh its more likely theyd emulate C2077 and ruin the internet for everyone.

Well, then we have a couple years :D

Not opposed to AI, just opposed to it's usage as a nefarious tool somehow?

Comedy is good, bring it on!🥂

It is nefarious. I oppose the approach we've had to take in general. Political bots and paid for views and deliberate dumb astroturf basically turn the internet into a place that you as a reader need to avoid. Conversation is like the stuff you see in a locked down society generally.

So basically what this is telling me is that I can safely expect to ignore an even larger percentage of the internet going forward because more and more of it will be bots rather than humans.

Great.

This AI is dangerous. If misinformation is a problem now, it will be nothing compared to computerised comments posted everywhere, pushing an agenda, propaganda.

You can be sure that governments, political parties and dictators will misuse this technology for their own benefit. We might see regulations come in eventually over its use, but it won't be enough.

Just imagine having a heated argument with a troll in an article comment section only for that to be AI, but hiding that fact. And that's only the start.

Each of you @Crims @Arantor @Retro said what I was thinking, but I couldn't quite map out the right words because I had a block getting passed the total shock of that moment realizing the negative potential in this kind of AI.

"In this blog post I describe how I used ChatGPT to create a simple sentiment analysis application from scratch. The app should run on an EC2 instance and utilise a state-of-the-art NLP model from the Hugging Face Model Hub. The results were astonishing."


"ChatGPT is my secret weapon when it comes to building new projects from scratch. With just a few prompts, it can generate a skeleton of the code I need, complete with my chosen technologies, frameworks, and versions."

OpenAI certainly tries to attract the best researchers:


"The annual salary range for this role is $370,000 – $600,000. Total compensation also includes generous equity and benefits."

I'm positive the tech sector has been bloated for a long time. If it's possible for all the tech companies to begin firing most of their staff the tech sector is largely busywork. AI posed an existential threat to replace tech companies eg search engines, and to prevent unions they're focused on monopolising tech.
So, in a way, the increasing use of paywalls is a good thing.
I'm a member of SomethingAwful, and that has a sign up fee. I don't think that's savvy or wise, and it doesn't work in the long run.

I hope that the tech sector with AI becomes grassroots very quickly and we harbour it for our benefit.
