With ChatGPT, we find ourselves in the midst of a technological revolution these days. Many people are oblivious to it. For instance, my wife, who isn’t very tech-savvy, has no idea how crucial these years are for the future of the next generations.
Artificial intelligence is here, many will lose their jobs, and new technologies will supplant the old ones, as the saying goes.
It’s important to note, however, that much innovation will come, leading to new careers, roles, job opportunities, and skills.
It all starts with ChatGPT (merely the first in an ever-growing list). What is it, you ask?
As it self-describes: “I am ChatGPT, an advanced artificial language model developed by OpenAI. I utilize machine learning to understand and respond to a broad range of requests in a coherent and informative manner. I don’t possess consciousness or personal feelings, but I’m designed to simulate human conversation convincingly. My primary purpose is to assist users in finding information, answering questions, generating ideas, and facilitating interactions.“
Pay close attention, ChatGPT states “I don’t possess consciousness.” I believe this is crucial. New artificial intelligences do not possess consciousness, so there’s no imminent ‘Terminator’-like danger, but there’s a real risk because copywriters, designers, image artists, storytellers, and even programmers could lose their jobs, potentially leading to a social catastrophe.
We’re already witnessing the early signs of this scenario. Some companies are replacing humans with artificial intelligence, saving, without a doubt, a significant amount of money.
The silver lining? A wealth increase for everyone (that’s the paradox!) because it appears that the GDP will surge considerably thanks to artificial intelligence, probably by 5% to 10% in the upcoming years. Am I too optimistic? Or too catastrophic? What are your thoughts on this?
Personally, I await each new technology with both anxiety and optimism. I am confident that if used properly, regulated, and handled wisely, artificial intelligence will be an asset rather than a threat to humanity.
Regardless, as a musician (but What Is A Musician??), I can affirm that AI has yet to master the creation An Artist Portrait (Part Two) - This is the Part Two (and final part) of the true life story as artist written by Frank V. Cahoj for our Weblog. (Part One) An Artist Portrait (Part Two) I give an unbelievable amount of credence to these two early periods in my life: one of everlasting creation, one of analysis and disillusionment. The… of convincing soundtracks Darklands, a Classic RPG - I'll talk about Darklands, a Classic RPG in a moment. April is an excellent month to reflect on how the year is going and whether we have achieved all or some of the goals we set for ourselves (Read - Overcoming Procrastination). It's also a time to assess the overall positive or negative trend of… and melodies. From this perspective, I consider myself fortunate!
I look forward to reading your comments on this matter!
