Could A.I replace the work of article writers and content creators?
Over the years of doing Internet Marketing, SEO and Blogging. I've used many content generation bots and software. Not one of them has been able to generate me content that is unique and excellently written/created. There are always words out of place or context, sentences that don't make sense. The idioms are wrong, stuff like that.
I've never been able to find any software that I can put a few keywords into and it be able to generate me a perfectly formed and sense making unique articles. Ever! There has always been some flaws with the produced content when it is produced and spun by a software.
Each type of content creation bots and software usually go about it differently in the way they collect or scrape and then spin the content. Some will scrape article sites for your keywords and then randomly pull sentences from those articles and then randomly place them into a new article to form paragraphs from them all. Then once that's done, it will then spin the article by spinning some of the words or all of the words depending on your spin settings. Sometimes you can have them spin only some of the words and not all of them so that the sentences still make sense without having random words in them.
And some content generation bots use sophisticated algorithms and content generation methods and even use intelligent smart spinning going by user suggestion but even then, even after all that, the outputted articles aren't still up to scratch.
You can just tell when you start reading it. You're like, hang on, this isn't right. Looks and sounds spun. And that is just a big no no today if you want to gain people's respect. It's a shame that many webmasters and bloggers, affiliate marketers etc still generate and use content like this. Albeit mostly on their web 2's and tier 3's etc.
I would never use auto generated and spun content on my money site! I wouldn't use it on my web 2's or anything else really. It can sometimes be moderated with a human touch before it's submitted, but even then the quality of the article itself isn't good and I wouldn't use it on any of my serious sites or anything! I'd rather write it!
There really are quite a lot of bots, tools and services out there that can generate content for you on the fly. Many of them suck! Some of them have a lot of promises but fail miserably to deliver. Some of them sort of serve a purpose. But none of them really that I have ever tried have ever been able to produce an article as though it was written by a person by hand!
Could A.I. be a content generators dream come true?
A lot of rich people are putting a lot of money into A.I and when that happens it means it's because they know something about it that people will like and find useful in the future. Up to about now, most binary based A.I slip up, repeat themselves. They can only say so much based on their programming and input. But new quantum based A.I will be different. It will be much more like having a real conversation with another person than getting some pre-programmed response.
If it was possible to ask an AI bot a question and get an essay back on what you asked based on what it searched and learned from it. Imagine the practical implications that could have for content generators, webmasters, bloggers etc. If an intelligence like that was made available to the Internet. Imagine what it could do for the Internet.
Think of something like Dr. Know from the A.I movie with Jude Law. Or Hal 9000 the computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey movie. An AI that you can ask a simple or complicated question too, an AI that knew your meaning and intention and was able to basically write blog content for you based on trends and hot subjects. An AI that you could speak a few commands or keywords to and it was intelligent enough to know how to go out, research those keywords and the topic or industry. And then be able to write an article on that which was 100% unique and well formed like a proper, human written article. Complete with bullet points and formatted words etc.
Do you think, what with the progression into A.I that we could ever have an A.I content generation bot like that? Something you could ask a question to. It search it online, learn about it, and then tell you about it in its own way in voice or in words.
Will we ever be able to build something like that in the future? I think we will! And what then? What will happen to all the current writers out there who make a living writing content for their blogs or for clients blogs and more? What will happen to their jobs? Will they all eventually be replaced by these smart bots that can do what they do only much faster and possibly even better without needing to stop for coffee and donuts?
How fast can something like that happen? We know that technology doubles in speed every year and new things can come out over night. AI is a progressing industry and has a lot of practical implications and uses for businesses and corporations around the world who look to it to replace real people from their jobs because it saves money. You don't have to keep paying a bot to do someone's job! That's a factor why they are investing so much into it right now hoping that it pays off for them in the future.
AI bots could actually go on to replace everything from emergency calls to crime detection and prevention. From gas stations to McDonald's. Everything will eventually become completely automated. It sounds funny and crazy, but in time I see AI replacing many many people's jobs in the real world as well as online too.
Because if you could develop an AI that could generate insanely well written and 101% unique articles that kicked ass, it surely wouldn't be too hard to create an AI that you could give a couple keywords too. And it go out and do SEO for you on those keywords. Doing all the things that you would be able to do yourself, for you. Such as contacting other blog owners for guest posts, link building, networking etc.
I think if someone developed an AI like that, it would put a lot of SEO and Internet and Affiliate Marketers, Freelancers and Virtual Assistants out of work as they are replaced and not needed any more. And I do see that happening if that comes about.
So yeah, do you think it could ever happen? Is it only a matter of time?
