Sports Illustrated parent The Arena Group has rebutted an expose by Futurism, a science and technology news website, alleging the sports magazine published AI-generated articles.
“According to our initial investigation, this is not accurate,” says a spokesperson for The Arena Group. “The articles in question were product reviews and were licensed content from an external, third-party company, AdVon Commerce."
The statement continues, "AdVon has assured us that all of the articles in question were written and edited by humans.”
“However, we have learned that AdVon had writers use a pen or pseudo name in certain articles to protect author privacy — actions we don’t condone — and we are removing the content while our internal investigation continues and have since ended the partnership.”
