So pleased to read that you're as cynical as our company is regarding AI - and Google for that matter.
On one hand they claim that they will penalise websites that use AI generated content , yet on the other hand theirs (and all other search engine's) model is built on AI ! So are the latest web development platforms and most other software.
Their new Bard platform is currently just as rocky as all the others - and as with all new developments rolled out by tech companies the end user's have no choice.
It is fascinating to recently see that there was an open letter signed by tech leaders and researchers proposing delaying AI development recently too - as it's all happening so quickly. It would not surprise me to read that legal planning has started to protect us humans from AI/ Robots as they will eventually be able to develop their own rights and ability to sue the human race for mistakes!
We are on the cusp of a genuine revolution .. I will exploit it as much as I can - but I make no bones in admittingb that I am also biding my time when I can retire and use technology as little as possible in my daily life !
