GAMURS Group is considering replacing human writers with AI

Once the cat was let out of the bag, the entire industry, and especially those directly working under GAMURS Group, lost their collective minds.

Years ago, people considered robots would eventually replace human labor. Even back in the 1960s, shows like The Jetsons lampooned a more automated, lazy lifestyle with conveyor belts and robot maids.

We assumed menial, labor-intensive jobs would be replaced, like flipping burgers. Instead, we’re looking at a world where AI does the jobs of creatives and artists, such as journalism, with humans being “AI Editors” for those synthetic works.

Back in March, GAMURS Group laid off a ton of people due to some vague reasoning given about the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank.

The layoffs indeed occurred, leading to approximately 50 employees across all their sites being let go. Following this, the company went quiet for several weeks.

However, just this week, they posted a new job listing on their website that has folks up in arms: a position for an AI Editor

An AI did not generate this heading

What is an AI editor, in this case? The job boils down to someone that uses AI, such as ChatGPT, to generate articles for websites owned by GAMURS Group.

They generate the article, then edit it to make sure it’s grammatically sound, not full of errors, and isn’t plagiarized. You know, three things that AI tend to have trouble with.

The position was considered “entry level” and offered a measly $40,000 to $55,000 yearly. However, the real shocker was the job description, which tasked the candidate with generating 200 to 250 articles weekly.

Let me just repeat that for the folks in the back.

200-250 Articles

Unfortunately, you can’t view the details on the Internet Archive anymore, as the original link (that was there not two days ago) has been scrubbed from it. Don’t worry, though: we have images of the entire listing.

Everyone disliked that

Once the cat was let out of the bag, the entire industry, and especially those directly working under GAMURS Group, lost their collective minds.

They quickly closed the position on their site and have not said a word publicly about it as of publication.

I suppose this is a to-be-continued situation now that this instance has spooked everyone. We contacted GAMURS Group for comment but didn’t receive a response at the time of this article’s publication.
