Artifact’s AI-based news personalization app has been running since January. It originally had limited access and has now become available to all users, according to The Verge.
However, the publication notes, Artifact has not made “revolutionary” changes. The main page of the application offers users news that, “in the opinion” of artificial intelligence, may be of interest to them. However, there are already complaints that some of the news proposed by the technology are outdated and irrelevant.
The publication offers to pay attention to the tab “Profile”. It is more interesting than the topic-sorted collections of articles in “Headings”. It is also noted that based on the results of viewing 10 articles, AI forms the history of their reading and determines individual preferences.
The application allows you to “minus” articles that are not interesting to users. This reduces the number of similar articles in the future. You can also sync your contacts with the app to see news that interests your surroundings.
The app is developed by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, co-founders of Instagram. Artifact is available for free download on iOS and Android. Currently, the application does not support the Ukrainian language.
To recap, researchers from OpenAI, Stanford and Georgetown University are convinced that large language models like ChatGPT can be used to deliberately misinform social media users.
