What separates humans from the robots? Advances in mathematics and computing power over the last decade have enabled robots to perform many jobs that have long been the remit of humans, from shelf-stacking to book-keeping to personal shoppers. As AI enables autonomous vehicles in the not-too-distant future, even lorry and taxi drivers will find themselves in a precarious labour situation. A recent PWC report predicted that three out of 10 jobs in the UK would be lost to AI.
You might assume that the creative industries would be immune to these AI job thieves, however, this AI technology does not discriminate over the sectors it infiltrates.AI has introduced some useful innovation to the creative industries by making personalised recommendations, based on your behaviour. Amazon will recommend books, Spotify will curate playlists and Netflix will suggest new boxsets.
