AI-generated content refers to any form of digital content, such as text, images, audio, or video, that has been created or produced with the assistance of artificial intelligence (AI).

  • It is produced by machine learning algorithms that are trained on large datasets of existing human-created content. These algorithms learn patterns and relationships in the data that allow them to generate new content that closely resembles content created by humans.
  • Common examples include AI-written articles, essays, short stories or poems; AI-generated images or illustrations; AI-generated audio recordings of speech or music; and AI voice/video assistants like Siri or Alexa.
  • The goal is for the AI system to create content that is human-like in style, tone, and coherence. With recent advances in AI, generated content can often pass as human-created to casual observers.
  • Creating this content automatically saves significant time and labor. It also allows for rapid generation of huge volumes of customized media.
  • There are concerns about ethics, accuracy, copyright, and the digital provenance of AI content. Critics argue low-quality AI content may flood and contaminate databases.

In summary, AI-generated content aims to harness the capabilities of artificial intelligence to automate the creation of new media that closely match those produced manually by human creators.

Most SEO experts agree that human editing is required to assure AI-generated content meets search intent and includes personal observations and original insights.
