This Optimist’s Edge article was created using the AI tools ChatGPT, DALL-E, Grammarly and Google Translate.
📉 What people think
According to this survey, almost 69% of college graduates believe that AI could take over their job or make it irrelevant in a few years.
With the breakthroughs of KI:s creating images and the text bot ChatGPT, the chatter about AI taking over our jobs reached new heights.
There are videos like These AIs are coming to take your jobs… and news articles Could the new AI chatbot take your job? from the Irish Times.
Some artists also fear it will destroy creativity: Artists are “concerned about the future of human creativity”.
📈 Here are the facts
- Artificial intelligence that creates images and text is just the beginning. AI will also create video, audio, music and more.
- This allows people who are not professionals in these fields to create at or near a professional level. For example, people who have ideas for a beautiful painting but cannot paint it can now create it.
- But what about the pros? They can take their performance to a new level. The digital artist behind the first AI-generated magazine cover, Karen X. Cheng, said, “I’m now able to create different types of art that I’ve never been able to do before.”
- Machines and automation have been jobs since the industrial revolution. But the lost jobs were replaced with new jobs. Overall, these jobs have resulted in better working conditions, higher salaries, and less fatigue.
Of course we also asked ChatGPT:
Me: AI today can create images and text just like you do. What more creative work do you think AI can do?
ChatGPT: There is a lot of potential for AI to do more creative work in the future. Some areas where AI can potentially contribute are music, video and film production, and architecture, to name a few. AI could potentially be used to assist in tasks such as composing music, creating visual effects, or designing buildings.
Me: Please do this in bullet points.
- music composition
- Video and film production
- Generating new forms of creative expression
Me: Keep going.
ChatGPT: Certainly! Here are some additional bullet points with ideas for creative work that AI can do in the future:
- Designing and creating new types of fashion and clothing
- painting and fine arts
- writing and storytelling
- Conception and design of new products or technologies
- Development and creation of new flavors and recipes in the food and beverage industry
- Creating virtual reality experiences and environments
- Development and creation of new video games and interactive experiences
- Generate personalized content such as B. Customized news article or social media post
- Creation of personalized marketing materials and advertisements
- Translate and adapt content for different languages and cultures
- Creation and production of teaching materials such as video lessons or interactive quizzes
- Designing and creating new types of software and applications
- Development and creation of new types of virtual assistants or chatbots
- Generating personalized content for virtual reality or augmented reality experiences
💡 Optimist’s Edge
💡 Artificial intelligence will unleash unprecedented creativity for laypeople, giving them the tools to create things previously only available to professionals.
Learning to paint takes years of practice. With AI, anyone who wants to paint just has to learn how to use AIs that paint.
If we can also create and of course combine music, other types of audio and video using AI tools, then even more creativity will be unleashed.
This creativity was previously trapped, but now it can come out.
This unleashed creativity will create millions of jobs and tons of human progress. The number of designers, artists and writers will increase dramatically.
Most importantly, though, is this thought from ChatGPT:
“There could also be potential for AI to create entirely new forms of creative expression that we haven’t yet imagined.”
👇 How to get the Optimist Advantage
- Most importantly, use them! Test them! Only then will you realize how powerful the AI tools are and how you can use them in your daily life and work.
- Ulrika Gerth used to write about AIs that paint. It is very good. please read it
Your “how to” list is great and I’ll copy it here.
- Become a “Prompt Engineer”: “AI art is not just an experiment. It’s a side job.” This is how an article in Verge begins about the burgeoning market for prompts, the text descriptions that AI tools translate into art. Do you have a special talent for creating elaborate prompts that produce amazing results? PromptBase, launched earlier this year, enables the new profession of prompt writers to sell their work.
- Get creative: At the end of September, DALL-E shared some welcome news: the waiting list was removed, allowing anyone to use the popular AI art generator (more than 1.5 million users are now creating 2 million images per day). You can also try Midjourney (you need to open a Discord account) and other applications like VQGAN+CLIP, Wombo AI, The Night Cafe, Deep Dream Generator and Craiyon.
- Sell your art: AI-generated art offers market potential. Both traditional auctions and NFT marketplaces like Open Sea are showing a growing interest in abstract AI art. Domestika, an online community for creatives, proposes combining AI with your past creations to create hundreds, if not thousands, of unique works of art, which can then be curated in NFT collections.
- immersion: Want a quick and affordable introduction to all things AI? Udemy, an online learning marketplace, offers tons of courses on the subject. These four courses on AI fundamentals are also highly recommended.
