Publishing Sector Scorecard - Thematic Intelligence

Publishing Sector Scorecard - Thematic Intelligence


Publishing companies have been immediately affected by the latest developments in artificial intelligence (AI). For example, in May 2023, Chegg’s shares fell by half after the chief executive admitted that AI chatbot ChatGPT was negatively affecting sales.

Key Highlights

However, some companies have responded quickly and begun building their own AI tools. For example, Chegg has launched its own chatbot, CheggMate, using OpenAI’s Chat GPT-4. Despite this, Chegg has a score of 2 out of 5 in the AI theme, as reacting to new developments in AI will not be enough to stay competitive.

Publishing companies must preempt how AI will transform the industry to avoid being blindsided again. AI could also have repercussions for publishing companies as lawsuits will increasingly emerge over what content can be used to train AI algorithms. Many will also need to monitor how AI could potentially scale the future production and spread of misinformation.
