Rachel Metz of Bloomberg Information writes about how VentureBeat is utilizing synthetic intelligence for its content material.

Metz writes, “One panelist’s response specifically caught me unexpectedly. VentureBeat’s editorial director, Michael Nuñez, defined that the tech weblog is utilizing Microsoft Corp.’s OpenAI-infused Bing Chat to assist with modifying and writing articles.

“‘I consider it as like having one other individual on the staff,’ he mentioned, noting that as an editor, he can use the chatbot to course of and summarize data in seconds relatively than the hours it’d take a human reporter.

“‘I’m not attempting to take a press launch, feed it by way of the system, and get an article, though I can in all probability try this,’ he mentioned. Nuñez thinks the talk over whether or not to make use of small items of textual content written by a machine might be short-lived. ‘In the event you’re taking sentences or clauses or small fragments of concepts from the massive language mannequin — for my part, we’re going to be discussing it for six months — and I assure, in two years, it’s not going to matter.’

“Nuñez mentioned VentureBeat is encouraging reporters to make use of the highly effective AI instruments which can be at the moment obtainable, and doesn’t attribute an article with ‘sentences and fragments’ from a chatbot ‘so long as it’s truthful’ and independently verified.”
