WordPress’ New Generative AI Tool Is a Step Back for Content Quality

WordPress is set to introduce a new AI plug-in called Jetpack AI Assistant, which will enable users to generate and edit text using artificial intelligence. As the world’s largest blogging platform, WordPress is an ideal environment for this kind of generative AI technology to thrive.

The Jetpack AI Assistant tool, developed by Automattic, the company behind WordPress, is currently available for free to WordPress users. Those who use Jetpack separately from WordPress receive 20 free requests before being charged a monthly fee of $10. This development represents the continued expansion of AI text generation software, as its integration into a popular content management and blogging platform like WordPress will expose the technology to a wider global audience.
