Get Ready to Relearn How to Use the Internet


This year there are many innovations in artificial intelligence, I tried to keep up with them, but many people are not interested in what the future brings. I hear things like, “Those look cool, graphic designers work with that,” or, “GPT-3 is cool, it’s easier to cheat than timesheets.” And they ended up saying: “But it won’t change my life.”

This view will be proven wrong – soon, as AI is about to change our entire communication architecture. You also need to learn how to use the internet.

The basic architecture of the consumer internet has not changed much in the last 10 years. Facebook, Google and Twitter remain conscious of their own past. The supervisor retains his primary role. Video has grown in importance, but it does not represent a major change in performance.

Change is coming. Think Twitter, I use it every morning to gather information about the world. Less than two years from now, I’ll probably be talking into my computer, outlining my favorite topics, and someone’s AI version will spit back at me some kind of Twitter remix, in a format that will readable and tailored to my needs.

The AI ​​itself will not only be responsive but powerful. They might say to me, “Today you should read about Russia and the changes in the British government.” Or I could say, “Please, run more today,” and that desire would be granted.

I can also ask, “What are my friends?” and I get a useful explanation of internet and social media services. Or I can ask the AI ​​for information in a variety of foreign languages, all of which are translated. Most of the time you don’t use Google, you just ask your question to the AI ​​and get an answer, in audio form for your trip if you like. If your friends were really interested in certain videos or stories, they might send them to you.

In short, many of today’s core internet services will be mediated by AI. This creates a new type of user experience.

It is unlikely that the underlying services will be lost. People keep on Google, people keep reading and writing on their Facebook pages. But it moves directly to AI synthesis. This dynamic has already happened: When was the last time you asked Google for directions? It’s online, but if you’re like me, you use Google maps and GPS directly. You have moved on to aggregating information.

Or consider blogs, which are said to have peaked between 2001 and 2012. Then Twitter and Facebook became the aggregators of blog content. There are a lot of blogs, but many people get into them directly through hackers. Now that process is happening again – because the current competitors will be compiled and organized by the most intelligent types of the engine.

The world of thought is turned upside down. Many public figures actively promote themselves on Twitter and other social media, and those opportunities are dwindling. There will be a new skill – promoting yourself to AI – which has not yet been recognized.

It remains to be seen how the AIs will choose and reward the underlying themes, and what kind of packages will appeal to users (with or without author images?). If the users just want to answer, but it will move other proxies. Why would a think tank bother to publish a policy report, if it were to be appended to brief and unremarkable documents? For the most part, those who are happy to publish information with little credit, such as Wikipedia editors, will be influential.

How to compete in AI itself? A powerful AI will cite the underlying sources, ensure that content is continuously being generated and maintain a healthy ecosystem to harvest. In the more competitive AI sector, it’s different and dangerous to cannibalize content but not secure it by direct credit, as it creates a free-rider problem.

Another question is who will reap the benefits from these innovations – the new AI companies, the old tech companies, or the internet users? It’s too early to know, but some analysts are optimistic about new AI companies.

Of course, this is just one person’s opinion. If you don’t agree, in a few years you can ask the new AI machines what they think.
