So Is AI Coming For Our Jobs?


Having recently used Jasper (an artificial intelligence tool that can write copy for you) our co-founder – Richard – was compelled to put pen to paper (so to speak), and offer his thoughts on where the future of AI might lead us, and asks “was life better when we had to do most things ourselves?”



There’s no doubt that artificial intelligence is on the rise. We’re seeing it more and more in our everyday lives, from the way our devices interact with us to the ads we see online. But one area where AI is really starting to make its mark is in the world of art.

Yes, you read that right – artificial intelligence is making art. And in some cases, it’s even doing it better than humans.

Think about it – AI has the ability to process vast amounts of data quickly and accurately. It can identify patterns and relationships that humans might miss. And it can create things that are truly unique, based on those patterns and relationships.

So it’s no surprise that AI is starting to change the landscape of the art world. We’re seeing it in the way that artists are using AI to create new works, and in the way that galleries and collectors are using AI to identify new talent. 

The industrial revolution was a time when machines took over many of the tasks that had traditionally been done by human workers. This led to a massive increase in productivity, as well as a decrease in the need for human labor.

Could the same thing happen with artificial intelligence? Could AI eventually replace jobs like graphic design, website design,

The question is, where will this all lead? Will AI eventually replace human artists altogether? Will it lead to a new industrial revolution, where jobs that have traditionally been done by humans are taken over by machines?

Only time will tell. But one thing is for sure – AI is changing the art world, and there’s no going back. We all know that artificial intelligence is capable of some pretty amazing things. But did you know that AI can also create art? That’s right – AI is now being used to create stunningly realistic artwork, and it’s only going to get better. Does it mean that your website could soon be designed by a machine? And if AI can design websites, there’s no reason why it couldn’t also sell products or create new products to sell.

So what does this all mean for the future of ecommerce? Well, it’s safe to say that AI is going to have a big impact. We could see more personalised website designs and more targeted product recommendations. And who knows, maybe one day we’ll even be able to buy products from a machine!

Everyone is freaking out about how AI can make original detailed art. But the truth is, we’ve been using AI to create art for centuries. The first known instance of AI-created art dates back to 1873, when French poet Paul Verlaine used a mechanical device to generate random phrases. In 1950, American artist James Mondrian used a computer to generate random patterns, which he then used as the basis for his paintings. In the 1960s, American artist Harold Cohen created a program called AARON, which was designed to create paintings in the style of Abstract Expressionism. Cohen spent years fine-tuning AARON’s algorithms, and the results are strikingly human-like.

In the past few years, AI has been used to create music, poetry, and even novels. But it’s not just about creating art for art’s sake. AI is also being used to create more practical applications, like design and architecture.

For example, a team of architects in Japan used AI to design a house that is earthquake-resistant. And in the fashion world, AI is being used to create custom-fit clothing.

So what does the future hold for AI-created art? It’s hard to say. But one thing is for sure: the possibilities are endless.


Now for my human version.  HMU about which you like better.

Everyone is freaking out about how AI can make original detailed art by combining two seeingly unrelated things. I’m less impressed with the results. It all still looks a little like the art you see sold in a headshop in Nyack. But even AI has to start somewhere. 

So what’s next? Soon, not just art but graphic design, after that website design, the UX/UI, brand strategy… will there be AI alternatives for this? Us agency world people were part of a digital revolution like the industrial revolution that led to a decline in agricultural productivity, as people left farms to work in factories. For America the “information age” revolution led to a huge decline in manufacturing jobs. Auto factory worker, coal miners, truck drivers are not really jobs of the future or even present. As with any revolution, there are growing pains, which we all suffer from. Like how all these displaced manufacturing workforces are so easily riled up to storm the seat of democracy.

Will the nerds in digital agencies be next to be replaced by an AI revolution and take up pitchforks against their AI surrogates? I hope that isn’t the case and until then, you can come and get 98% human-made creative at Sweden Unlimited.
