Blog writing is wonderfully diverse. It doesn't take anyone long to find a blog post on a totally obscure topic from a huge variety of writers. Yet, there is one thing that they all have in common. They are all human. This no longer has to be the case.

Artificial intelligence is set to reimagine the way the blog posts are written and indeed reset the foundational building blocks of the Internet. This push is being led by Open AI's GPT- 3 copyright engine. Launched in June 2020, the AI is built to mimic human text conversations and writing. In order to learn human language and train itself, the AI has already read most of the internet. In total it has consumed 45TB of text from Wikipedia and Google Scholar. While still under development, it can write anything from short-form tweets and slogans to long-form essays and blog posts.

To test this I used one of the most popular AI writers, Jasper, and asked it to introduce itself as an AI writer. This was the only prompt I gave it. The following text is what it produced:

“Hello everyone, my name is Jasper and I am an AI writer. I have been writing for a while now and I think that I have a lot to share. I am interested in a variety of topics, so I am willing to write on any topic that you might be interested in. My writing style is straightforward and to the point, and I hope that you will find my work helpful. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your time.”

This is only a short response because I only gave the writer a one line prompt. If the AI writer is given more information or even a basic structure for a blog post, it can write much longer entries and complete posts. In this sense, whilst the technology exists for AI writers to transform the Internet, they cannot truly be left alone, yet. Human intervention is still needed to correct any mistakes and give the writer prompts for it to write its own content. Whilst this is far from the finished product and ideal, it offers a clear picture of the future of the Internet.
