Servant or Skynet?

AI tools have exploded, it seems, since the calendar turned to 2023. Most of us played with that app that gave us amazing digital fantasy photos of ourselves.

Apps like ChatGPT have made news by writing complete novels and screenplays, while creating art based on prompts – in this case, James Bond promotional art for a fake film: .

A lot of people bemoan the surge, worried that it will replace creative individuals and their endeavors. There’s even to talk of or just losing our work to AI. It’s faster and cheaper and can give you what you want.

There are arguments against this, such as AI incoporating copyrighted work into whatever creates. And I stayed earlier from their orders they will replace creative people, especially by companies who want something fast and as cheap as possible. It’s the first step in skynet taking over humanity.

(It’s funny because, to me, movies like Terminator which creates kind of end up inspiring people to create robots and AI. But that’s a subject for another blog post).

I don’t see it that way at all. For starters, a machine cannot replicate a humans creativity or our ability to see deeper and bring out their experiences into work they create.

Secondly, it’s like a computer and software on that computer – it’s a tool. ChatGPT can help you by creating an outline based on an idea allowing you to expand a plot, or fill in holes or gaps. For filmmakers and authors, like in the James Bond or above, he can help give a potential agent or buyer a visual idea of what you have in mind. I see you being a perfect accompaniment to a pitch.

It’s not without its flaws, sure, but at the end of the day, I see it enhancing our work, not replacing it.
