Student vs Simulation

Below are two news articles covering AI news. One was written by a LION student, and the other by Chat.gpt, on the instruction to paraphrase the article with its own words. Can you guess which is which?

Article #1

President Biden has issued an executive order about it, voices can be altered by it, jobs are being replaced by it, and students are taking advantage of it. Artificial intelligence, more commonly known as AI, is taking the world by storm. Here’s what you need to know about its current development.  

Headlines upon headlines of AI news filters through the media daily. The most commonly expressed worry surrounding the new technology is what impact it will have on the job industry. According to Nexford University in Washington D.C., many recent studies have shown the dramatic impact AI could cause. Artificial intelligence (AI) could replace the equivalent of 300 million full-time jobs, a report by investment bank Goldman Sachs says. 

Forbes continues this theory saying AI will replace as many as two million manufacturing workers by 2025. A study by the McKinsey Global Institute reports that by 2030, at least 14% of employees globally could need to change their careers due to digitization, robotics, and AI advancements.

Additionally the number one job that is going to be impacted is customer service representatives. Automated answering machines are already being implemented daily, advancements in human-like intelligence unsurprisingly will only increase this.

On the flip side, numerous new jobs are being created with the presence of AI. As its impact on the economy is looming, Forbes claims though AI has the potential to be among the most disruptive technologies across global economies that we will ever develop, it also can bring about positive change. Nexford University continues by saying that AI has the potential to bring about numerous positive changes in society both now and in the future, including enhanced productivity, improved healthcare, and increased access to education. AI-powered technologies can also help solve complex problems and make our daily lives easier and more convenient.

As it happens, AI is now transforming the music industry. The Beatles, a celebrated 1960s band, is making headlines once again for their release of the song “Now And Then” after 45 years. This previously unreleased song is the band’s last song, and in order to create it, they had to use a little help from AI. Originally co-vocalist John Lennon, had written and recorded a demo of the track in late 1970, a couple of years before his death. Now, with AI technology, the record was cleaned up and Lennon’s voice was isolated in order for the track to be completed, a report by CNBC said. According to the Guardian, this is not the only case of AI use in music however. Numerous AI-generated covers of popular songs are popping up in the media, replicating voices of popular singers like Rihanna, Kanye West, and Harry Styles. 

The Biden-Harris Administration recently published a blueprint for an AI bill of rights, in addition to an Executive order directing agencies to protect against AI and people’s safety and rights. AI has gotten so impactful that the whitehouse has to take action, so who knows what else it will do for the world. ]


Article #2

President Biden recently took a step to deal with the widespread impact of artificial intelligence (AI) by signing an executive order. Currently, there’s a lot of talk in the media about the progress of AI, particularly regarding its potential impact on jobs, and the music industry. Here’s the scoop on what’s happening. 

In discussions about jobs, recent studies, as highlighted by Nexford University, suggest that AI could potentially disrupt around 250 million jobs. The National Bureau of Economic Research adds to this conversation by proposing that AI might replace up to 1.5 million manufacturing jobs by 2025. PwC contributes to this dialogue with a study estimating that by 2030, roughly 10% of jobs might undergo changes due to AI. Interestingly, the customer service sector is expected to witness significant changes, with more automation taking the reins.

Despite these concerns, there is a silver lining. Forbes suggests that, despite potential economic challenges, AI could be one of the most impactful and positive global technologies we develop. Nexford University emphasizes the potential positive changes AI could bring, including enhanced productivity, improved healthcare, and easier access to education. AI-powered technologies are also expected to play a crucial role in solving complex problems and simplifying daily life.

The influence of AI extends beyond the workplace, making notable waves in the creative industry, especially in music. The legendary 1960s band, The Beatles, made headlines with the release of “Now And Then” after 45 years, a feat made possible with the assistance of AI technology. According to CNBC, AI played a pivotal role in cleaning up and finalizing the track, which was originally a demo by the late John Lennon. Additionally, The Guardian sheds light on the increasing prevalence of AI-generated covers of popular songs, replicating the voices of artists like Rihanna and Kanye West.

Recognizing the transformative power of AI, the Biden-Harris Administration has taken a proactive approach. In addition to sharing a comprehensive plan for an AI bill of rights, they have issued an executive order directing agencies to ensure AI doesn’t harm people’s safety and rights. This reflects the growing importance of AI, and the government’s commitment to ensuring its responsible use.

As AI continues to shape various facets of our world, from altering communication dynamics to restructuring job markets and education, the actions taken by the Biden-Harris Administration underscore the need for careful and fair use of artificial intelligence in our evolving society. Balancing the potential benefits and challenges, society stands at a crucial juncture in navigating the impact of AI on our daily lives.
