It's not coming as many expect here.
AI is already used in domaining. By now, I thought this would be obvious to everyone. I've already commented recently, the folks that are "hidden partners" of DC are definitely using AI as nothing worth anything is left un-captured at drop currently. I've watched the registration patterns, that's not human it's AI and it went so during the pandemic, they used to be more sloppy before.
I'm using AI as of now. To remove 95% of my work (although there is a good part of classic algos as well not just machine learning).
There are countless other AI tools not just GPT or even in the NLP field in general. Those are going to be far more useful in domaining in comparison with GPT. Simply because there you need something else; to identify patterns in specific datasets, to analyze multi-dimensional data such as regs, past sales, trends and whatnot. GPT is not so useful here.
I see most of the people commenting here are not in touch with the AI field directly.
- You can't replace domainer experience with AI. To be smart, the AI needs domainer experience and it won't have it, unless you are a pro domainer to train it in the first place. (I trained my minions to replicate me; Edit: as far as my experience goes, of course.)
- If you have that experience, you don't need AI, something like basic filters and existing tools out there will do the job for a small monthly fee. Building it yourself, probably not worth the hassle.
- The best domain names are already taken. Years ago.
- AI will not turn crap regs into the source of eternal gold. Doesn't work like that.
- AI is already used and it made a difference but it's slight at most. I also see improvements in GD's automatic appraisal tool lately, perhaps they have improved it in this direction. Anyway, as I said, due to factors and data is not going to make any great difference soon.
- However you can use it to learn about domaining. But that is not going to turn you into a pro faster. You either have it in you, or not.
- To be successful in domaining, you need three things. Hard work, experience, and money. Lack of any of these factors ends in no profit. You can automate most part of the hard work using AI, but so far I don't see anything replacing human experience there. And money of course.
So it's rather like the floor cleaning robot. It helps in the household, but it's not Skynet. (not that Skynet isn't coming, it is but that's a different story altogether)
People like to dream though, and get excited, and that's alright. I tend however to question and bring clarity into things before getting too excited about stuff I'm not fully familiar with.
