Totally not going political. Instead, I found inspiration for this week’s current events photo in a topic that is scaring the heck out of creatives around the world (including me… you can tell by my eye in this photo).
The meteoric rise of Artificial Intelligence Programs. AI is so frightening, in fact, Elon Musk along with other tech leaders like Steve Wozniak, have signed an open letter asking for a “pause” from developers on “giant AI experiments.”
What’s so scary about it? Artificial Intelligence is good. So good, it could replace writers, graphic artists, marketing specialists, and many many more professions.
It figures, just when I’m finding my groove.
I decided to go to the source and ask Google’s new BARD Ai a question. The answer pretty much answered my questions and fears.
My Q and A with Bard
Will AI eliminate the need for creative jobs?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly developing field that is already having a significant impact on the world of work. AI is being used to automate tasks in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, customer service, and healthcare.
Some experts believe that AI will eventually eliminate the need for creative jobs. They argue that AI will be able to generate creative content, such as music, art, and literature, that is indistinguishable from human-made content. They also argue that AI will be able to automate the process of coming up with new ideas, which is a key component of many creative jobs.
However, other experts believe that AI will not eliminate the need for creative jobs. They argue that AI will never be able to fully replicate the human creative process. They also argue that AI will not be able to understand and respond to the nuances of human emotion, which is essential for many creative jobs.
It is likely that the truth lies somewhere in between these two extremes. AI will likely automate some aspects of creative work, but it is unlikely to completely eliminate the need for creative jobs. Creative professionals will need to adapt to the changing landscape and find ways to use AI to their advantage.
Here are some tips for creative professionals who are concerned about the impact of AI on their jobs:
- Stay up-to-date on the latest developments in AI.
- Learn how to use AI to your advantage.
- Network with other creative professionals who are also adapting to AI.
- Be prepared to pivot your career if necessary.
Ultimately, the best way to deal with the impact of AI on creative jobs is to embrace change and be open to new possibilities.
On that note…
I’m going to get back to my huge pile of homework, and embrace change.
