The Web3 hype has dulled and artificial intelligence is taking its place. AI has entered the mainstream and people are using it to create artwork or write novels, captions or marketing copy. For creators, AI could serve as a personal assistant to design their YouTube thumbnails or draft podcast scripts. But some worry that the new technology will become smart enough to make them redundant.
James Currier, general partner at seed-stage venture capital firm NFX, said AI won’t replace creators, but will help them produce more and better content. For example, not all creators can pay to hire someone to craft their video thumbnails; but many will be able to use AI for such tasks, especially as models compete with each other and become less expensive.
