What’s up with this AI story generation? I mean, look at Sports Illustrated, they’ve been accused of being shady about who’s actually writing their articles, which, considering artificial intelligence is fresh on the scene, is pretty sketchy. At the center of this scandal is the firing of a content producer for Sports Illustrated’s website, a company that produced articles supposedly under the names of non-existent authors. Some reports even suggest that AI is being used to generate these stories, and the whole mess just wreaks of dishonesty. Other media companies like Gannett and CNET have run into similar roadblocks with this kind of tech, and honestly, I don’t think it’s worth it if you can’t be transparent about it. Trust and accuracy have always been the keys to storytelling, and if you want to be in the truth-telling business, you gotta keep those values in check.
