We are currently living in a world where the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI) writing have grown. You probably would have used ChatGPT or any other AI platform to write your essay and feel happy thinking you submitted good content. However, do you think that AI wrote better content than you?
Why AI Can Never Replace Human Writers?
If you are a student, you may be familiar with Turnitin, a plagiarism checker. Have you noticed Turnitin detecting ChatGPT or AI-written content and branding your paper as 100% plagiarized (or more than 20% at least)? That could be a reason why your lecturers love to use Turnitin. To catch you red-handed!
Even when it comes to writing jobs, AI can never replace humans because of its limitations. Here’s why:

You can immediately distinguish human writing and AI writing based on originality. Human writers can write based on their knowledge, personal experiences, emotions, and perspectives. You can immediately see a sense of uniqueness in their content. While AI can mimic patterns and generate coherent content, it often falls short when delivering the authentic creativity that defines human-authored pieces.
2. Creative Differences

Everyone knows how smart AI is when it comes to generating content. AI bot crawls into websites and collects data to give you the content. However, you may notice that they give you the facts that you want (or sometimes not. If that frustrates you, it’s okay!). But, there are always some limitations in AI-generated content, which is creativity. When it comes to human writing, you can see how the authors take their time to craft a narrative that resonates emotionally with their readers.
3. Limited Understanding

If you are a linguistic student, you will probably know that understanding context and the intricacies of language is a skill deeply embedded in human cognition. Human writers can navigate the complexities of cultural nuances, idioms, and emotional depth, ensuring that their writing resonates with diverse audiences. AI, on the other hand, lacks the intuitive understanding required to interpret context accurately. This may lead to misinterpretations and communication gaps between you and target readers.
4. Lack Of Sensitiveness

Sometimes, writers are required to write a piece that may be extremely sensitive. Humans possess emotional intelligence, while AI doesn’t. When writing delicate content, humans can narrate the topic with a voice and emotions to avoid offending readers. AI may struggle to address the sensitivity and could gauge negative emotions among readers.
5. Low Quality Content

Most people probably love to use AI to get their work done quickly instead of writing it or passing the job to a professional writer. However, the quality of AI-generated content may not be up to the standards. Human writers have an eye for detail and the ability to craft well-structured and engaging narratives. AI may not write a captivating piece and hold the readers’ attention for long.
Although human writing is better, AI is not all bad. AI scientists are trying their best to improve the language model and its limitations. You don’t have to be scared of AI taking over your job because AI can be a tool for you if you want to generate content ideas. If artists were scared of Photoshop tools, we wouldn’t have great designers today. Just adhere to ethics in writing if you are using AI.
