Recently, there's been an influx of posts that have been entirely AI-generated in response to a question, particularly using the ChatGPT bot.
There have recently been some big advances in the capabilities of various AIs to generate content, including art and answers to questions. This is naturally exciting to us as AI enthusiasts. However, with these advances, there have been some negative side effects. One of those is writing AI-generated answers.
AI-generated answers, especially with the ChatGPT bot, can look very convincing at first glance. They're generally well-written, well-formatted, and sound like they know what they're talking about. They're convincing. However, upon closer inspection by a subject matter expert, it is often evident that the answer is blatantly incorrect and thus misleading. These "answers" are also extremely quick to generate; it takes a matter of seconds to copy-paste a question, recieve an answer from the bot, and copy-paste that into the answer field. (There have been thousands posted and deleted on Stack Overflow.)
The aim of Artifical Intelligence Stack Exchange is to provide a repository of high-quality questions and answers about the subject of artifical intelligence. Having misleading, mass-generated answers that sound high-quality but are actually incorrect runs counter to that goal. We are a site about Artificial Intelligence, not a site run by artificial intelligence; let's try to keep it that way.
