middle this is the latest platform to jump on the rampage for ChatGPT. platform blogging announced a change to its rules that now allows the publishing and distribution of articles written with the help of AI. Of course, under one condition: each text created using generative artificial intelligence is clearly identified as such.
As Medium explained, the decision to accept texts written with the help of AI was made after analyzing community comments. The main concern was how the use of tools like OpenAI would be received given that many readers they pay a subscription to access articles by your favorite writers or publications. Thus, the need for transparency has become a critical factor in determining how to address this opportunity.
“We welcome the responsible use of assistive AI technologies on Medium. To ensure transparency and help meet reader expectations, we require that any story created with intelligence clearly marked as such“Now provide guidelines for Medium distribution standards.
What happens if a platform user publishes articles written in whole or in part using ChatGPT, and does not explain this? Scott Lamb, Medium’s vice president of content, said that when they find articles they think were created by artificial intelligence, they will not distribute them through the Medium network.
Nevertheless, did not explain how the specified control measure would be implemented. How the service will be handled in case of detection of cases of plagiarism, which is quite common in generative AI tools.
Medium follows in the footsteps CNET D buzzfeedand includes the use of generative AI
Medium’s announcement came to light after it was revealed that buzzfeed will implement ChatGPT in its editorial content throughout 2023. A trend that seems to be getting stronger every day, though not without controversy; the most important, without a doubt, the one in the title role CNET.
The said medium became a target after it became known that it had published dozens of articles created with the help of AI, but without clearly informing about it. In addition, the study showed that most of the content created using this method serious bugs includedalthough the site claimed that its editors checked them before publication.
The case of Medium is somewhat different because it is a third party platform for distributing articles. However, you will be faced with a very delicate process in which should be able to enforce its transparency rulesunless you want things to get out of hand.
In any case, Medium has already clarified that they will continue to explore various ways to implement generative AI. And that they expect their approach to the subject to change over time. It remains to be seen how the various publications using this platform approach this issue. since everyone has their own rules of content. Although some are like fanfare– They have already stated that they will not accept any text written with ChatGPT or similar tools.
