A freelance writer said his amusement with Open AI's ChatGPT turned to "horror" after the bot knocked together a nearly-finished marketing article in just 30 seconds.
Writing in The Guardian on Tuesday, Henry Williams said the bot's article needed a little editing — but once edited, was something he'd have charged £500 ($615) to write.
Williams said the bot's article was simplistically-structured and written in an inhuman tone, but the "key points, the grammar, and the syntax were all spot on."
He added: "I'm pretty sure artificial intelligence is going to take my job."
ChatGPT, which drew more than 1 million users soon after its launch, is a large-language model praised for its ability to produce conversational human-like text. The chat bot has only been open to the public since November but quickly grew to become a viral hit global hit, sparking interest from top executives.
Williams suggested in his opinion piece for The Guardian that writers and editors "will still be needed, but fewer of them. A human will prompt AI to generate mountains of copy, only intervening again to fact-check, amend and approve."
