You can’t stop progress. Many news organizations have already started using AI in their content creation or they’ve begun considering how best to integrate AI into their newsrooms. Rather than looking at Genesis as a threat, journalists should look at it as Google responsibly developing a tool that will enhance their work and make them more productive.
AI must be kept out of the newsroom. Time and again, the technology has proven it can’t be trusted to produce factual reports the way human journalists can. Not only should media outlets be leery of Genesis’ accuracy but also Google’s intentions, considering its history of harvesting intellectual property for its financial gain at the expense of content providers.
There's a 52% chance that there will eventually be a positive transition to a world with radically smarter-than-human AI, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
