AI is going to demolish many jobs in many fields. Which?
Right now, I can already see jobs in the creative and media industries (at least some of them in some companies) such as the following quite possibly gone in the foreseeable future:
- newscasters (news reading)
- sound technicians
- graphic designers
- junior copywriters
- junior video editors
- junior photographers
- newsroom reporters (not analysts or commentators, yet)
- voiceover talents
- backup vocals
- supporting musicians
- and lots more in other industries (you know, e.g. coders)
The burden is on us, to quickly rise to harnessing AI as a tool, and not to allow it and those who master it, to displace us. It is a tool we harness, NOT our gods.
PS – Here’s a generative voice that mimics me, done in a British accent. It sounds kinda like me, but it is not me. And it reads out a script much more realistically than many TTS (text-to-speech) systems.
