“AI did it” is no excuse

Let us suppose you use an artificial-intelligence app to write something for you and you publish it.

Later you find out it contained an error, or multiple mistakes, or worse. Maybe someone calls you out, somebody else wants to sue you for damages, or your employer fires you for incompetence.

Don’t blame AI.

You’re the one who trusted the artificial thing, the one who failed to check its output for truth and accuracy, and the one who turned your mess loose on others.

I read somewhere that you reap what you sow. I’m pretty sure that applies in this scenario.

What do you think?
