That machines will steal our jobs has been a common fear stemming back to the industrial revolution. We’ve long assumed that to be an inevitable truth for repetitive, manual, labor-intensive jobs. However, as writers or creative individuals, we tend to think that our professions sit well protected in a relatively safe domain. So when DALL-E 2 and ChatGPT were released this year, the potential repercussions of AI hit a bit closer to home.
DALL-E 2 and ChatGPT have brought up fears of computers replacing humans, but the reality is a bit more nuanced.
While DALL-E’s AI-initiated art proved to be an exciting experiment in derived creativity, ChatGPT takes it further. The AI and machine learning-based language model can script human-like content while pulling from a database of information that vastly supersedes human capabilities. Welp. Guess the computers finally came for my job?
