Generative AI offers a range of good uses: summarising text, sparking inspiration and analysing patterns and data.
But it can also makes things up, including entire articles from the Guardian.
In this episode, host Chris Stokel-Walker speaks to the Guardian‘s Head of Editorial Innovation, Chris Moran, about the day he was made aware of an article that never actually existed, though Chat GPT swore otherwise.
He describes the newspaper’s approach to AI and the many egregious implications the technology will have on the future of journalism.
