Wikipedia’s founder: AI is a ‘mess’ now but can become superhuman in the future

Wikipedia’s founder, Jimmy Wales, has said that ChatGPT, the wildly popular generative artificial intelligence (AI) tool from OpenAI, is currently a “mess” when it’s used to write articles on the platform.

Wales told Euronews Next that a Wikipedia article written today with ChatGPT-4 is “terrible” and “doesn’t work at all,”, because it “really misses out on a lot and it gets things wrong, and it gets things wrong in a plausible way and it makes up sources and it’s a mess”.

He believes that it is possible for AI to surpass humans in the distant future, adding that it is more likely that AI tools will continue to support intellectual activities, despite being in an early phase at the moment.
