Promise & Peril: Mulling The Fate Of The Media In The Age of AI

by Shelt Garner

It seems to me that it’s possible that the Web as we currently know it may be replaced by just a bunch of AI agents that talk to each other. This, in turn, makes me wonder if instead of a Website, The New York Times may simply be an AI agent that talks to your AI agent.

Or something like that.

That is, of course, before all jobs are taken by AI. Even the physical gathering of the news will be done by Boston Dynamics androids with ChatGPT 10.2 Deluxe build into them or something. But the point remains that it could be that the ultimate form of newspapers and magazines will be some sort of AI agent. What the specifics of that situation will be, I don’t know.

Will our personal agents talk to newspaper agents or will we use the newspaper agents directly? Given of how slow newspapers tend to adopt new technology, I have my doubts about any of this taking place in time to save newspapers at all.
