I’ve been reviewing AI apps because the market is exploding. I’m looking at AI marketing software that spans a few subsectors—analytics, presentations, content writers, websites and more. I’ve been reviewing AI apps because the market is exploding. I’m looking at AI marketing software that spans a few subsectors—analytics, presentations, content writers, websites and more. The applications that have hit the marketing in the last six months or so are really, really good. What’s impressive are their numbers, their quality and scope. ChatGPT is where it all started, and it will be celebrating its first birthday in November. We’ve come a long way in a year.
In just a year we’ve become dependent on our AI content writers. They’re drafting our articles, correcting our grammar and spelling mistakes. Quillbot helps writers paraphrase small paragraphs or a whole article, making it possible to repurpose a favorite story or message without worrying about being flagged for plagiarism.
We all strive to produce content that’s compelling, well-written. And now that we’re using AI content tools that have made content creation infinitely easier, what about the ethics?
But they’ve also made it easier for plagiarism to flourish
Can AI content detectors stay ahead of this? Are we setting ourselves up to be always one step ahead or behind the applications that detect plagiarism? This is an ethics problem that really hasn’t been adequately addressed yet, and the issue is surfacing as schools, businesses and government agencies set standards for original content—that which is generated by humans–not by machines.
