Artificial intelligence (AI) has shown that its greatest powers lie in predictive processing and mimicking, not in creating truly original content. In fact, most experts agree that AI is virtually incapable of creative thought.
AI is equipping creators to do more with less, empowering visual artists, sound designers, and writers to deliver more polished stories with minimal equipment and expertise. As such, creative storymaking will become less about sparkle and more about ingenuity and substance.
AI-driven tools for creators will be as commonplace as personal computers.
In the future of storymaking, all creators will have greater independence in pursuing real purpose and sharing their message. Just as access to computational power has become ever more affordable and robust, AI-driven tools for creators will become ubiquitous. And, thanks to greater affordability of the technology, creators worldwide will find and build a more equitable new playing field.
