There are a lot of talks that models such as Stable Diffusion, Midjourney can replace artists and ChatGPT can replace writers.

Here are my thoughts on it.

First  and foremost, I do not think these models will replace artists and  writers. How so? If you have ever painted, you know painting is just not  the surface of things but rather what the art is presenting, but rather  the emotions, meaning that it is trying to present. An example will be  Master Pablo Picasso's "Guernica".

For writing, it is more about  the communication of values, emotions, meaning, and thoughts of the  author/writer rather. All these require emotions, understanding,  context, and empathy.

The current level of technology, especially for artificial intelligence related is what I called "smarter automation". Business owners can see it as a form of outsourcing, as such business owners need to plan the strategy, or else the competitive advantage may be outsourced altogether.

However, I am a strong believer in "augmented intelligence".  This means there is a strong opportunity that artists and writers can  work together with these models and increase their efficiencies. For  example, these models can set up the base work and the creative  professionals can edit it. And that is the future/vision I believe in.  :)
