Is it possible to write articles exclusively with artificial intelligence?3 min read

Artificial Intelligence (also called “AI“), i.e., the ability of machines to reproduce certain human activities, is a computing tool whose development is proceeding at an unbelievable pace: within a few years, it has been possible to develop increasingly accurate systems for creating content or subtitles and machine translations. And that’s just to give a couple of examples compared to a plethora of other potential fields of application.

If in the early years, in fact, the risk of AI error could be quite high, over time it has been possible to refine this tool to the point of creating something very close to what a human being could produce. Improvements are no longer noticeable, by the way, from year to year, but from week to week or month to month. A change, this, that leads us to think that in the future some specific human activities will be almost completely supplanted by Artificial Intelligence.

This “almost” is very important, because doubt concerning the possibility of creating content (especially in the purely creative sphere) solely and exclusively by AI seems to be a utopia, at least in the very short term.

Can articles be written exclusively with AI? Possibilities and limitations 

The answer to this question necessarily passes through a basic premise: as of now  the answer is yes, it is possible to write articles with AI, but with a couple of clarifications. First of all, it is worth specifying what kind of text we are talking about: a very technical piece of content, full of numbers and statistics can undoubtedly be dealt with by an Artificial Intelligence or an editorial article,, where in addition to data analysis, a point of view from the author is certainly needed.

In addition, it is crucial to understand what margin of error we are willing to accept, considering that   errors, inaccuracies and typos will surely pop up within an article written entirely by an AI. Consequently, AI can write articles autonomously, but people must take into account the possibility to make appropriate changes and corrections.

At this stage in history, relying exclusively on Artificial Intelligence   is still a big challenge. Human involvement is still key, as people   can take care not only of proofreading but also more generally of “wrapping up” the speech with original and engaging elements that could hardly emerge from the computer frozen heart 

What has been said up to this point, of course, is the scenario facing us in this 2022: technological evolution is so rapid that this analysis of ours could be disproved by the facts (conditional is a must) in no time.
