Good or Bad?

March 8, 2023

New to me is A.I.—Artificial Intelligence. Probably not new to you. You’ve been using it for ages, know all the lingo. I stumbled onto it only recently.

I’m talking about A.I. in creative fields: art and writing. That A.I. can produce amazing work isn’t the question. It’s whether or not that’s a good thing.

I confess. When I first encountered A.I. content creation, I was intrigued. Could I get a robot to write an entire novel? I could publish it under my name and earn royalties from work I didn’t do.

Then I became upset. Where did that leave me? If a robot could write potentially better, definitely faster than I, why was I necessary?

I doubted that I could stop being creative. I would need a different endeavor. I briefly considered visual art but robots can draw and paint as well as write. I felt as though I had been made redundant, superfluous.

What’s your opinion about A.I. content creation? I’d like to know so please comment. (This post was written by me, a human, but see the P.S. below. That was written by A.I.)

P.S. Robots can’t write stories in their current state, however their capability for creating stories will only increase over time.

My opinion is that robots can indeed draw, paint, and write; however, robots cannot replicate the creative writing process that observing authors bring to the table when producing stories. While robots may eventually be able to mimic the process, they still lack the ability to emulate the sense of emotion and connection which a human writer injects into a story. It is these delicate nuances which make stories truly magical.

    I truly have no idea without reading what a robot writes in comparison to what a real person writes given same subject. I believe a robot could spit out a review much quicker with a better vocabulary than I can. But better? Might be dependent on the reader. LOL!

      Well, you saw an example in the post. The P.S. was written by A.I. I think you’d be surprised to find out how much of what you read throughout the day was written by A.I. Quite a bit of advertising copy is being done that way. WordPress blog posts, too.

        Doubt I’d be surprised. But, would it be better One can’t judge “better” unless comparing.

      I have found it impressive. And I found it difficult to tell that it wasn’t written by a person. Error-free, too, since spelling and punctuation are part of the coding. It does have me questioning my future.

        I’m serious. It’s mind-blowing. I was so upset about it, I nearly threw out all my pens and journals.
