Hello friends and readers, it thrills me to bring this piece your way. It excites me at the pace technology is evolving by the day as humans are now learning to work smart and not hard. Machines are here with us to ease the drudgery associated with all manual human labour and activities. At the press of a knob or swipe of the finger, a building can be pull down with a multi-digit horsepower machine.
The wake of the new millennium has braced itself with the need to replace all of human works with machine right from domestic chores to office work and the list continues. Before now, writing was meant to be a creative activity better done y "geniuses", but now, the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and it's application in content creation would make everyone, "schooled or unschooled" to serve as writers.
While the AI application in content creation is a great innovation, I am worried about the future possibility of man's redundancy. This argument is based on the fact that humans would see no need to read and think before creating content. Do we say Technology has replaced creativity in humanity?
There are a chunk of platforms that are already leaveraing the AI technology ion writing such as ai-write. This is by no means a promotion of the platform, rather, for illustration purposes. On launching the ai-write website, it is boldly written that a unique text can e created with the AI writer and it's served in minutes. All that is required are keywords and an export source to deliver the output of the content generated.
The propositions in favour of AI in content creation are that the technology helps:
- to save time that would have been given to research and content formulation;
- to reword and rewrite existing contents;
- to auto-blog using the text generation API;
- to induce inspiration based on pre-programmed emotions.
What is the future of humanity as AI technology tries to replicate human emotions as well as mimic human responses in very subjective contexts as creativity? Will there be need for schools and training anymore? What would be the fate of the rural poor especially in developing and underdeveloped nations who may not have accessed to be trained in these advancements?
I am yet to validate the extent to which the AI technology in writing can be accurate in referencing, citations while giving an in-genuine submissions especially in subjects that require remote experiences and knowledge.
What direction is human creativity headed? To accelerate or retard with these development? Let's discuss.
