Too Good To Be True
According to my colleague Kyle Wiggers, most tools claiming to detect AI-generated text tend to fail spectacularly. This is quite a paradox. As a mere human, I have to admit, a lot of the AI-written pitches I come across don’t pass the sniff test. Their style and verbosity feel somewhat off.
Then again, perhaps it is just too soon to expect machines to detect that elusive “je ne sais quoi” that we, as humans, can easily spot. As my fellow TechCrunch writer Ron Miller wisely noted, “it’s really like AI-generated art, which exudes a certain look and feel.”
This particular look and feel became hilariously evident in a recent experiment conducted by one of my beloved social media accounts, Ugly Belgian Houses.
