I will appreciate it if Medium will continue to value direct human writing and thinking above any type of machine writing such as AI. Even after it evolves to a more sophisticated style and substance, what I expect to find here is human writing.
Having said that, I know and respect that there are subtleties and nuances to the creative process. In that sense AI can operate as a source of suggestion or deliberate texture for someone's content. It may be necessary to quantify to what level a HUMAN author can make use of AI tools and still be able to produce acceptable human intentioned writing.
Whether or not a human author has skills above the level of an AI tool isn't the point! As a reader and member of Medium, it is the human level writing that I'm here for.
Out of exploratory interest, there is room for well identified AI content which has been skillfully guided and directed by a human intelligence. Of note, the US Copyright Office doesn't accept the notion of AI as a legitimate "tool" and AI assisted works can not be copyrighted except where there is a clear delineation as to the source.
That means anyone can borrow freely from AI generated material. Copyright may not be necessary or required on Medium, but these standards are based on valuing human thought and input over machine copy-cat imitation.
Those copyright rules will likely change (and they need to change) as there are nuances that need better and more sophisticated definition.
Obviously, AI is of interest to many, including myself, so writing about AI Tech necessarily includes the use of AI content, both graphical and textual. I remain most interested in human level thought and expressions.
