Artificial Intelligence in a Creative World

July 3, 2023

Isn’t it great to wake up on a random Tuesday, uncertain if your entire existence as a creative professional is still needed? Well, that’s the unsettling reality that thousands of people in creative jobs face today, thanks to the rise of artificial intelligence (AI). While we have always been open to embracing new technology, the unchecked proliferation of AI calls for a bit of caution.

We can’t deny that technology has been instrumental in shaping the industry we work in today. It is why we own a video production company and can utilize tools like Descript and other AI editing software to streamline our work processes. 

Innovation has undeniably brought us valuable tools and opportunities; However, when it comes to AI, we find ourselves in uncharted territory. In an ideal world, this technology would be carefully governed and utilized for the greater good, anticipating the potential economic transformations and preparing us for a rapid and radical set of transitions. 

Instead, what we have now is a free-for-all with industries racing to integrate this technology without fully understanding its implications. While AI has the potential to automate mundane tasks, streamline operations, and unlock new creative possibilities, it also poses a significant threat to human livelihoods.

The advancement of AI raises fundamental questions about the future of work and the role of humans in an increasingly automated world. What will happen to the countless artists, writers, designers, and other creative professionals whose talents, like us, have always been rooted in human ingenuity and emotion? Will those skills become obsolete? Will they be replaced by algorithms and machines that can replicate their work with astonishing precision?

To address these challenges, we need to establish frameworks that ensure responsible AI development, regulation, and implementation. By doing so, we can harness the power of AI while preserving the unique human qualities that make creativity and artistry remarkable.

We have an opportunity to define the role of AI in the creative industry, making sure it complements and augments human creativity rather than replacing it. Let’s embrace the potential of AI but with a healthy dose of skepticism and caution.
