Robotics and artificial intelligence have taken the world by storm, and machines are well on their way to replacing millions of jobs. While most people think robots will be restricted to manufacturing, they’re actually capable of doing the work of legal assistants, taxi drivers, and loan servicers.

The conversation about AI being used in creative fields has progressed quickly with the development of the artist robot Ai-Da and the launch of ChatGPT in November 2022. The highly advanced chatbot has proven capable of writing emails, essays, and poetry at a similar level to most humans. Apparently, it can also come up with the short and snappy content that BuzzFeed is known for. BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti informed his staff on January 26 that "AI-inspired content" will become part of their "core business" in 2023. 

“The creative process will increasingly become AI-assisted and technology-enabled,” Peretti wrote. “If the past 15 years of the internet have been defined by algorithmic feeds that curate and recommend content, the next 15 years will be defined by AI and data helping create, personalize and animate the content itself.” He reassured them that human editorial staff will still be necessary, but that they're entering a "new era of creativity that will allow humans to harness creativity in new ways with endless opportunities and applications for good." Needless to say, it didn't seem like good news to all the content creators and writers out there.
