Democratized Generative AI – enabling creativity for everyone
As time keeps moving, there’s no question artificial intelligence and machine learning will be at the forefront of several technological advancements in today’s society. Obviously, one of the most fascinating aspects of AI is the ability to generate human-like content in basically no time at all. The technology which enables this feature is known as Generative AI, and it’s currently making waves in our world of creative content.
In previous years, access to resources necessary to create with Generative AI was limited to a select few… those with highly-specialized training or advanced technical skills. However, with the democratization of Generative AI, average people like myself (among others) can now generate complex content without that extensive technical background.
To give a face to the name, Generative AI can be described as a subset of artificial intelligence that enables computer models to create new content like text, images, graphics, videos, and more. This technology has been key in revolutionizing areas like art, music, and literature. Before democratization, Generative AI’s progress was slow because of its high complexity, cost of hardware, and data requirements. However, Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (otherwise known as GPT-3) revolutionized the field making it possible to overcome these obstacles.
In my view, one of the most significant benefits of democratized Generative AI is how it can be used by non-technical professionals. In today’s creative landscape, it’s now possible to generate complex multimedia presentations, interactive websites, even graphics projects without needing a massive amount of technical skills. This ability alone has the potential to open up a world of possibilities for many professionals who could never find quick answers to these basic problems, which can leave a viable product stuck in the starting block.
In digital marketing, the main area where democratized Generative AI is making waves is in content marketing. Right now, there are several tools that can generate human-like text which can be used to write blogs, social media posts, and emails. The generated content flows somewhat smoothly like it was written by a human, making it hard to tell the difference (at the very least). This element alone makes it possible to create faster and cheaper content, which leaves room to increase productivity and reduce overheads. Now some will say the generated content isn’t too high quality, but at the very least Generative AI frees up time to focus on other efforts.
Furthermore, the democratization of Generative AI has resulted in a significant increase in research and development of AI technology in general. This has led to more innovations in the field, ranging from improved machine learning models to new machine learning algorithms. These advancements have resulted in the development of different AI products that are both affordable and effective. In turn, these advancements have made Generative AI more applicable in fields such as healthcare, finance, education, and several others.
To rehash, democratized Generative AI is an exciting development with game-changing potential. This is mainly due to the fact that many professionals can access this technology, opening up possibilities that didn’t exist before. However, it should be noted that with this significant advancement come challenges that require ethical considerations which need to be addressed on a continual basis. By doing so, we can continue to create a safe, secure environment that encourages AI-powered creativity for everyone.
