AI Writing: Exploring the Reliability of What It Creates
Delegate, but don't abdicate ...
Posted by The YourPCM Growth Team on 12/01/2024 @ 8:00AM
From chatbots to content creation, AI has proven to be a valuable tool for businesses looking to up their marketing game. However, with the increasing use of AI writing, the question of its accuracy has become a hot topic ...
When it comes to using YourAI for a bit of AI writing, I always tell my users to delegate, but don't abdicate!
Can we always trust what AI writes? At first glance, the capabilities of AI writing are impressive. Large language models, such as GPT-4, have been trained on vast amounts of data and can produce human-like text on a wide range of topics.
This has led to the rise of AI-powered content creation tools such as ours which promise to save time and resources for businesses. But as with any technology, there are limitations and potential risks to consider.
"One of the main concerns with AI writing is the issue of bias!"
AI models are only as unbiased as the data they are trained on. If the data contains inherent biases, the AI will replicate them in its writing. This can lead to perpetuating stereotypes and misinformation, which can have real-world consequences.
As a user of YourAI, it is important to be aware of these potential biases and ensure that you check the text it produces and update anything it creates to prevent any harmful content from being used.
It has to be said that the underlying AI we use with YourAI hasn't been found to have any biases so far. The models ChatGPT uses have been refined through many iterations and as far as we have found through our testing and the creations it produces for my users, it is pretty unbiased in all things it writes.
"What other things do you need to be aware of?"
Well, one of them is the cut-off date of AI models. As mentioned earlier, AI models are trained on vast amounts of data, but this data is not static. It is constantly changing and evolving, which means that the AI model's knowledge may become outdated. This can result in inaccurate or outdated information being produced. Therefore, it is crucial to regularly update and retrain AI models to ensure their accuracy and reliability.
Our developer Steffi Lewis found it herself when creating YourAI and funnily enough, ChatGPT swore blind that the information it gave her was up-to-date and accurate. There was an article on the BBC News website about racing driver Fernando Alonzo and she asked YourAI to create a similar article. She realised it was out-of-date information when it started talking about McLaren rather than Aston Martin as his racing team.
Also, AI-produced writing is not always able to capture the nuances and complexities of human language. While AI can produce grammatically correct and coherent sentences, it may struggle with understanding context and tone. We always find what it produces a little flat, so you need to give the words your own personality.
Anyone who uses AI-created writing should carefully review the content generated by AI and make necessary edits to ensure accuracy and inject some personality into it. We always recommend this before publishing!
While AI has the potential to produce high-quality content, it is not infallible. As with any technology, there are limitations and potential risks that need to be considered. However, this does not mean that AI writing should be dismissed.
"AI has made content creation easy, but it is not without its limitations and potential risks!"
So, the next time you use YourAI to generate content, remember to always check for accuracy and make necessary edits to ensure the reliability of the information being presented and the personality of the finished writing.
We always tell our users to delegate, but don't abdicate!
Until next time ...
