It's the End of the Web as We Know It

• Wall Street Journal

AI is changing how we use the web at the same time that it floods the world with questionable content

For decades, seeking knowledge online has meant googling it and clicking on the links the search engine offered up. Search has so dominated our information-seeking behaviors that few of us ever think to question it anymore.

But AI is changing all of that, and fast. A new generation of AI-powered "answer engines" could make finding information easier, by simply giving us the answers to our questions rather than forcing us to wade through pages of links. Meanwhile, the web is filling up with AI-generated content of dubious quality. It's polluting search results, and making traditional search less useful.
