There’s been a lot of talk about Artificial Intelligence (AI) lately. Some people embrace it and talk of all the benefits it can offer. Others are more sceptical and fear that AI could replace humans in the job market.
We already use it in many areas of our life, most of the time without even thinking about it: for maps and navigation, for editing, and chatbots on customer service are examples.
Some universities are keen on capitalising on the opportunities that AI can offer when used appropriately.
AI has also been in the news for moving into the entertainment industry. Do we still need artistic people, painters, sculptors, musicians, writers? Or can AI do it better? For the singer Will.i.am AI is a “new renaissance” in music.
I read a very interesting blog post by Clare Stevens on the impact AI may have on writers.
Clare Stevens is an author of contemporary fiction and magic realism. Her first novel, Blue Tide Rising, was published by Inspired Quill in 2019. Her second novel comes out in the autumn.
