He tried using AI detection tools, but found them lacking. (The detector released by He OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, 1 in 4.) He said such tools can sometimes stumble when unfamiliar phrasing is included in submissions from authors based outside the United States whose native language is not English. “These detectors have an inherent bias,” says Clark.
Clark believes that rapid advances in AI over the next few years will render such detection tools utterly useless. “The AI writes at levels that are undetectable to normal humans,” he said.
At least one person responsible for creating generative AI tools shares Clarke’s concerns. Amit Gupta is the co-founder of Sudowrite. Sudowrite is an AI tool for writers that assists with editing, generates plot ideas, and completes entire sentences and paragraphs. In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Gupta, who is also a science fiction author and has contributed to Clarks World many times in the past, said the magazine’s experience was “horrible” and “genuinely disappointing.” said.
He said something like ChatGPT, which generates large blocks of text from scratch, would be a great tool for generating sci-fi posts. He pointed out that there is a cap on the number of stories he can create in a day using Sudowrite. “But I don’t think that using just three articles every day can stop the case,” he says. “This feels like too much of a gray area between legitimate and illegal uses.”
Clarke calls the entire field of generative AI “an ethically and legally gray area.”
“Who owns these [submitted] does it work? he asked. “If you buy one of those, who do you pay? That person didn’t write it. The chatbot doesn’t own it.” “Look at what’s going on in the art world,” he said. 3 artists sued The makers of a popular AI image generator claim the tool was trained on their own art without permission.
Ultimately, however, Clark says the real issue isn’t whether the text generated by the AI tool is good or bad. The problem is its speed. “We were buried,” he said. “I never thought a master of the side hustle would destroy our submission system.” has not been lost to
