Artificial intelligence is becoming more popular among all industries. The number of AI startups has increased by 14 times since 2000. AI is playing a significant role in the publishing industry by assisting publishers with the following tasks:
- Searching published content
- Handling peer review
- Identifying data fabrication
- Detecting plagiarism
However, as with all things, there are benefits and drawbacks to using AI for publishing purposes.
Pros of AI in Publishing
One of the most effective uses for AI is automating the tedious tasks mentioned above. Publishers can spend more time doing more important work rather than spending countless hours catching plagiarism or finding peer reviewers.
Another advantage of AI is when it’s used for evaluating material. There are AI technologies that do a lot more than check spelling. AI can correct grammatical mistakes and even compare work with bestselling or award-winning publications to see how they stack up against one another.
Limitations and Downsides
Of course, there is only so much you can do with AI. As of right now, AI isn’t reliable when it comes to fact-checking or validating sources. AI can also make mistakes when performing any of the aforementioned tasks, so double-checking is necessary. It is impossible to rely on AI 100 percent, but it is a useful tool for publishers to have in their arsenal.
