Jetpack AI Assistant is soon to be available on WordPress as an AI plug-in. The tool would be free for WordPress.com patrons “for a limited time.” Normally Jetpack users have to pay a monthly fee of $ 10 once their 20 free requests are exhausted.
This is the latest addition to the world of AI text generation and editing software. Since it would be available on one of the biggest content management and blogging platforms, its popularity could advance on a grand scale.
Automattic, the owner of WordPress.com, created JetPack AI Assistant. It contributes so to the growth and development of WordPress to a great extent and shall continue to do. Automattic says that the tool is a “creative writing partner” that helps people “generate diverse content at your command, significantly reducing the time and effort required in content creation.”
Demos show that the tool could summarize a blog in a headline, adjust the tone of a text, and even generate a blog completely from a single prompt. Users have the option to choose the text tone from “provocative”, “formal”, and “humorous” options. People can give prompts like- “Write a list of Tokyo’s must-visit destinations, and give me a table with exchange rated from JPY to USD and Euro.” Automattic confirms that the tool can correct grammar and spelling. It can also translate to and from 12 languages including Spanish, English, Chinese, Hindi, and French.
Understandably, it is a logical decision for Automattic to launch this feature as it would draw in more people to WordPress.com. However, such features are likely to bring along harmful effects as well. Regrettably, copywriters are losing their jobs as clients are switching to generative AI software and tools such as ChatGPT. People are also worried about the web being a palace of substandard AI-generated span.
There is no denying the fact that AI tools offer mostly inaccurate content. Moreover, the default copy produced by them is out-of-date and often bland as well.
