If you’re a creative professional, then you should be scared of artificial intelligence (AI) taking over your job.

Here’s why:

  1. AI is becoming increasingly sophisticated and can already do many creative tasks better than humans. For example, AI algorithms can now generate realistic images and videos, write convincing news articles, and compose realistic-sounding music.
  2. As AI gets better at these and other creative tasks, the demand for human creative professionals will decrease. This is already happening in some industries, such as journalism, where AI is being used to write articles.
  3. AI will also get better at tasks that are related to creativity, such as strategy and planning. For example, AI can already plan better than humans in some simple games.
  4. The decreasing demand for human creative professionals will result in lower wages for those who are able to keep their jobs.
  5. AI will also have a negative impact on the quality of creative work. This is because AI-generated content is often not as original or interesting as content created by humans.
  6. Finally, the rise of AI will lead to the concentration of power in the hands of a few large tech companies. These companies will be able to control the creative output of society to a large extent.

So, if you’re a creative professional, be scared of AI taking over your job.
