AI Experts Predict By 2026, 90% Of Online Content Will Be Generated By Artificial Intelligence
As artificial intelligence and machine learning continue to grow, one prediction has been getting more and more attention lately.
The expert who predicted that within 5 years, 70% of jobs would be replaced by computers predicts that by 2026, 90% of online content will be generated by computers without human intervention.
If you have ever wondered what the future will look like, it may not be long before you can find out firsthand.
According to the European Law Enforcement Group (Europol), we have every reason to step up our vigilance. As the adage goes, "Don't believe everything you see on the Internet." Never has this phrase been so true -than in a world where technological advancement has been on a breakneck speed.
Experts estimate that as much as 90% of content on the Internet may be AI-generated by 2026. The report further warns that “Synthetic media” (media manipulated or generated by artificial intelligence) will give rise to disinformation.
For the most part, synthetic media is used for gaming purposes. Still, a definite correlation with new technological innovations can lead to the possibility of misuse and misinformation.
It is undoubtedly true that people rely on their perceptions to decide what is real and what isn't," the Europol report states. Therefore, it is unavoidable that visual and audio recordings are viewed as truthful accounts of events. But what if these media could be manipulated to show events that did not occur, to distort the truth, and misrepresent events?
The report focused on disinformation, particularly caused by deep fake technology. Additionally, it also raises other questions - what do GPT-3 and Dall-E mean for writers, artists, and content creators?
In the era of AI-generated digital content, what will the dissemination and consumption of information look like in an era driven by such widespread disinformation?
Ultimately, we're all trying to discover what our rapidly changing digital and physical worlds mean, which we don't think we're even close to accomplishing.
But to that point, if we keep the changes in mind, we won't act based on fear or misinformation. In light of these uncertainties, proceeding with caution will inevitably be a good idea.
