What is AI invisible watermarking?

AI invisible watermarking is a technique that embeds a digital watermark into digital media, such as images or videos, using artificial intelligence algorithms.

This watermark is invisible to the naked eye but can be detected and extracted using specific software or algorithms.

And, OpenAI has already started working on a way to watermark content produced by AI.

FYI: We did some digging, and it turns out OpenAI’s cryptography-based approach to the problem might be one of the first of its kind!

How does ChatGPT’s watermarking work?

ChatGPT’s AI invisible watermarking embeds a piece of code into the text generated, including punctuation marks!

AI-generated content follows predictable word patterns, making it easy for watermarking to detect AI text generators.

But it’s worth mentioning that ChatGPT watermarking is not currently in use!

How is AI text generation impacting social media algorithms?

As AI text generation continues to evolve, it’s natural to wonder how this technology can impact social media algorithms.

We most likely can expect to see algorithms becoming more sophisticated in their ability to detect and prioritize AI-generated content.

It’s also possible that algorithms may begin to prioritize authentic, human-generated content over AI-generated content, as consumers continue to place a premium on transparency and authenticity in their interactions with brands.

But, one thing remains constant: consistency is key when it comes to content posting and engagement, even in the age of AI-generated text.
