The recent rush to adopt ChatGPT, estimated to have passed 100 million users in just two months of its launch, has been extraordinary. It has become more popular than TikTok, disproving the notion that people fear artificial intelligence. However, a new academic report emphasizes the need for caution when dealing with this technology.
OpenAI’s generative system and others such as Luminous, Bard, Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, DALL-E, Synthesia, MusicLM and more have upended the idea that Industry 4.0 technology will free humans from time-consuming and mundane tasks so they can focus on creativity. Surprisingly, the opposite is happening, with some corporate users ordering staff to feed data to these AI machines as if they were just photocopiers. This only serves to devalue human talent, but at the same time, the ability to conceive original content is now a valuable skill.
At a time when the use of AI-generated content is becoming increasingly prevalent, professionals need to disclose its usage. While the technology has great potential to generate high-quality, tailored content quickly and efficiently, having more transparency in the process would ensure its use is done ethically and responsibly.
Adopting ChatGPT and similar AI-generated content is an exciting development, as it can potentially revolutionize how businesses create content. However, businesses must be wary of its potential misuse and should take measures to ensure the technology is being used properly.
