Jane Friedman talks about how AI is messing up with her work, since anyone can write and publish books under her name for a quick buck.
We desperately need guardrails on this landslide of misattribution and misinformation. Amazon and Goodreads, I beg you to create a way to verify authorship, or for authors to easily block fraudulent books credited to them. Do it now, do it quickly.
In the old cyberpunk dystopias, the scary stuff was always in corporate vaults, and a big fear was that a smart AI would escape the corporate computers and roam wildly on the internet. I don't recall an author who thought the dystopia would be a small company trying to turn in a quick buck by making their AI available for everyone. But here we are, and we're not at all prepared for this.
Found this from my daily AI newsletter:
For applying: In seconds, platforms like Wonsulting AI can tweak your resume and cover letter to make them a perfect match for that dream job.
So yeah, basically future job market will have AIs writing letters for other AIs to digest. I wrote about this content explosion a bit earlier, but I still find it fascinating to watch it take shape. It's like the AI output will become the lingua franca of all professional interaction.
The fun/great part of it is that it could have been a complicated, designed machine language; a general interchange format designed by people to be easily machine-consumable (there is a myriad of them already). Turns out that the best way for computers to communicate is basically just polite, verbose human language. Ha, take that, XML!
