CNET uses AI to write articles

The technology news agency CNET found using Artificial Intelligence (AI by Artificial Intelligence) to write financial articles without mentioning it to his readers.

The articles, numbering 73, covered topics such as “What Is Zelle and How Does It Work?” and had a little disclaimer at the top of each post:

"This article was created using automation technology, thoroughly edited and checked by one of our staff editors."

"This article was assisted by an AI engine and reviewed, fact-checked and edited by our editorial staff."

The authors in these articles came from the “CNET Money” account with no indication that they were created by AI.

CNET's editor-in-chief, on the other hand, defends AI-written stories:

I use the term “AI assist” because while the AI ​​engine drafted a story or gathered some of the information in the story, every article on CNET — and we publish thousands of new and updated stories every month — is reviewed and edited by an editor with full expertise before we start with publishing. This will remain our policy regardless of the tools or technology we use to create these stories.

Our reputation as a fact-based, unbiased source of news and advice is based on transparency about how we work and the sources we rely on.

So in the last 24 hours, we changed the byline to CNET Money and moved our disclosure so you don't have to hover over the byline to see it: “This article was assisted by an AI engine and reviewed, fact-checked and edited by our editorial staff.”

Will we make more changes, try new things, and as we continue to test, learn and understand the benefits and challenges of AI? Yes.
