This is interesting and a new (to me, at least) concept. "We already have a complementary tool that can mitigate generative AI's downsides while enhancing its creative potential. This tool, called discriminative AI, is another branch of machine learning specifically designed to evaluate content and categorize new information. If generative AI is your creative, artistic friend who spontaneously shoots wild ideas from the hip, discriminative AI is your no-nonsense buddy with a laser focus on facts." Here's some background on generative vs. discriminative machine learning models; the latter are engines that can learn inference rules, regressions, categorization, and the like, in other words, already familiar applications of AI.
