Is Wikipedia More Valuable Than Ever?

Is Wikipedia becoming obsolete?

Or is it still valuable in the age of generative AI?

We now know that AI can generate realistic texts. So do we really need a human-curated encyclopedia?

In his article entitled “Wikipedia ist im Zeitalter der generativen KI wertvoller denn je” German journalist Jörg Schieb argues that Wikipedia is actually more valuable than ever.

He points out that generative AI models are still not perfect, as they sometimes produce inaccurate or misleading information.

In contrast, Wikipedia is a crowdsourced encyclopedia that is constantly being updated and improved by a community of experts.

This means that Wikipedia is more reliable and trustworthy than anything that generative AI can produce.

So why not support Wikipedia and help ensure that it remains a reliable and trustworthy resource for everyone?
