Top Highlights

  • Inbreeding refers to genomic corruption when members of a population reproduce with other members who are too genetically similar
  • In the world of generative AI, a similar problem exists, potentially threatening the long-term effectiveness of AI systems and the diversity of human culture.
  • But as the internet gets flooded with AI-generated artifacts, there is a significant risk that new AI systems will train on datasets that include large quantities of AI-created content
  • there is the potential degradation of gen AI systems, as inbreeding reduces their ability to accurately represent human language, culture and artifacts.
  • there is the distortion of human culture by inbred AI systems that increasingly introduce “deformities” into our cultural gene pool that don’t actually represent our collective sensibilities
