There are many many criticisms of AI based on the errors that it makes. It can't draw the right number of fingers, for example. But as mike cook writes, "making quality the central point of your argument against AI systems is dangerous if that's not really your issue with it." History is full of examples of people who predicted AI couldn't do something, only to later be proven wrong. Moreover, "pulling up AI technology on the basis of quality is risky, and it assumes that the people investing in this technology care about quality in the first place." Companies that aren't willing to pay human creators a decent wage aren't going to worry about the quality of the AI they use to replace them.
