The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) with the capability to quickly cull the internet to answer any question with fully formed sentences is having a seismic effect on many but will AI replace writers and journalists? Will the use of AI diminish our value in the long run?
I did my research and went right to the source — in this case, ChatGPT. When I asked it whether AI will replace writers and journalists, the answer was pretty much what I had anticipated. And conveniently, without the limitation of copyrighted content ownership, I’m able to offer the bot’s instantaneously generated response here, in its entirety:
While AI has advanced significantly in recent years, it is unlikely that it will completely replace writers and journalists. AI can certainly generate written content, but it is currently limited in its ability to produce writing that is truly creative, nuanced, and insightful. AI-generated content tends to be formulaic and lacks the depth of understanding and creativity that human writers bring to the table.
