Most writers and 2D artists are tossing and turning in their beds over one question – “Is AI going to eat up my job?” As for me an acidic burn rose in my heart and I mauled over alternate career options – maybe I can take up farming and grow potatoes. I can certainly survive this AI invasion munching on homemade alu (potato) vadas (fritters) and coffee. If you think I’m overreacting just check out ChatGPT and Dall e 2. Before retreating into oblivion I thought I should get into an honest conversation with my nemesis. So I decided to bell the cat. Now here is the truth that popped out of its mouth. Let me know your verdict and what career option I should plunge for.
Will ChatGPT replace writers?
ChatGPT is a tool that can assist writers in generating text, but it is not a replacement for human writers. While ChatGPT can generate text based on a given prompt or context, it is not capable of the same level of creativity, nuance, or understanding as a human writer. It is important to remember that the output generated by ChatGPT is a result of the data it was trained on and is limited by that data. Human writers, on the other hand, bring their own experiences, perspectives, and understanding to their work, which allows them to create unique and compelling content.
How ChatGPT is different from human writers?
ChatGPT is different from human writers in several key ways:
Creativity: While ChatGPT can generate text based on a given prompt or context, it is not capable of the same level of creativity as a human writer. Human writers bring their own experiences, perspectives, and understanding to their work, which allows them to create unique and compelling content.
Nuance: ChatGPT is a machine learning model that can generate text based on patterns it has learned from the data it was trained on. It may not be able to fully capture the subtleties and nuances of human language and meaning as well as a human writer can.
Understanding: ChatGPT is a tool that can assist writers in generating text, it does not have its own understanding or consciousness. Human writers have their own understanding and consciousness of their work and the world around them.
Emotion: ChatGPT can generate text that can be emotionally evocative, but it is not capable of experiencing emotions itself. Human writers bring their own emotional experiences and perspectives to their work, which can add depth and complexity to their writing.
Originality: ChatGPT is a machine learning model that generates text based on patterns it has learned from the data it was trained on, therefore it is not capable of producing entirely original content. Human writers, on the other hand, can produce completely original and unique content.
How can human writers and ChatGPT co-exist?
Human writers and ChatGPT can co-exist in a number of ways:
Text generation assistance: ChatGPT can assist human writers in generating text by providing suggestions and prompts based on a given context or topic. This can help writers to overcome writer’s block or generate new ideas for their writing.
Content creation: Human writers can use ChatGPT to generate text for a variety of content such as news articles, product descriptions, social media posts, etc. This can help writers to quickly produce high-quality content for various platforms.
Research and fact-checking: ChatGPT can be used by human writers to quickly gather information and fact-check their work. This can help writers to ensure the accuracy of their writing and improve the quality of their work.
Language Translation: ChatGPT can be used to assist human writers in translating their work into different languages. This can help writers to reach a wider audience and expand their readership.
Proofreading and editing: ChatGPT can be used by human writers to proofread and edit their work. It can help to identify grammar errors, typos, and other mistakes, which can help writers to improve the quality of their work.
In summary, ChatGPT can be a valuable tool for human writers, helping them to generate new ideas, produce high-quality content, research, fact-check, translate, proofread and edit their work. But it is not a replacement for the creativity, nuance, understanding, and originality that a human writer brings to their work.
Phew! Looks like I can rest easy for a few more nights. Despite the reassurances of amicable co-existence I know better than to trust a heart less super brainy being. It’s time to start prospecting and venturing into newer terrains to escape AI apocalypse. But anything that’s new age is dangerous territory. The best way to win is to go for the age old rustic and basic stuff – like potato farming. Or may be I can start writing the sad story of a potato farmer who was once a writer. I will pour my overflowing emotions into this story. There I think I will have an edge over ChatGPT. An AI certainly doesn’t have feelings so how can it write a sad story of a potato farmer better than me. Atleast untill scientists find a way to plug in emotions into AI beings I’ll be safe.
