90% of Online Content Could be Generated by AI by 2025, Expert Says

An expert says that 90 percent of online content could be generated by artificial intelligence (AI) by 2025.

In an interview with Yahoo Finance Live, author Nina Shick claims that generative AI, like as Open AI’s DALL-E and ChatGPT could completely change how digital content is developed in the next three years.

“I think we might reach 90 percent of online content generated by AI by 2025, so this technology is exponential,” Schick, who is an advisor and expert in Generative AI, tells Yahoo Finance Live.

“I believe that the majority of digital content is going to start to be produced by AI. You see ChatGPT… but there are a whole plethora of other platforms and applications that are coming up.”

‘The Pace of Acceleration is So Incredible’

“What generative AI can do, essentially, is create new things that would have thus far been seen as unique to human intelligence or creativity,” Schick explains.

“Generative AI can create across all media, so text, video, audio, pictures — every digital medium can be powered by generative AI.”

Schick says that applications for generative AI have only “really [been] coming to the fore in the last 24 to 6 months.”

But she believes the generative AI space is going to change rapidly within the next year.

“The pace of acceleration is so incredible that these tools — which are shocking and awing us at the beginning of 2023 — are going to seem quite quaint by the end of the year because the capabilities are just going to increase so powerfully,” Schick tells Yahoo Finance Live.

“ChatGPT has really captured the public imagination in an extremely compelling way, but I think in a few months time, ChatGPT is just going to be seen as another tool powered by this new form of AI, known as generative AI,” she adds.

Legal Troubles Ahead

As generative AI continues to explode in popularity, it has also been the subject of two major lawsuits today as photographers and artists accuse text-to-image generators of using their pictures without consent.

A group of artists has filed a class-action lawsuit against AI image generators Stable Diffusion and Midjourney — accusing them of being “a 21st-century collage tool that remixes the copyright works of millions of artists whose work was used as training data.”

Meanwhile, Getty Images has also launched legal action against the creators of Stable Diffusion claiming the AI image generator infringed its copyright.
