Is AI Killing Creativity? OpenAI's Shocking Revelation Sparks Outrage!

OpenAI often professes its mission to develop a superintelligent computer system that benefits humanity. However, it frequently stumbles in its communication, portraying AI in a manner that seems more likely to alienate rather than unite people.

During a discussion about AI at Dartmouth University, hosted by the engineering department and featuring Dartmouth Trustee Jeffrey Blackburn, OpenAI's CTO Mira Murati made a remark about the impact of AI on creative professions. She suggested that some creative jobs might disappear because the content produced was not of high quality, implying that such roles perhaps should not have existed in the first place. Murati added that AI could enhance intelligence when used as a tool for education and creativity.

For those skeptical of generative AI who view it as largely built on the illusion of originality, Murati's statements are especially aggravating. Her comment comes across as dismissive, insinuating that certain professionals do not deserve their jobs in the AI era. This sentiment is infuriating not only to creative professionals but to anyone who values their work and effort.

Previously, Murati seemed uncomfortable when questioned about whether OpenAI's Sora video tool was trained using YouTube videos. This incident contributes to the growing perception that OpenAI is antagonistic toward creative industries. There is a notable lack of trust in the authority of OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and his team to decide whose job is valuable, especially after Altman’s controversial comments about AI potentially replacing "median humans."

Many geeks who are outside the AI development sphere, hold the belief that human potential is unique and invaluable. Every individual deserves an opportunity to realize their capabilities fully. Contrary to this belief, OpenAI appears to undermine these values. This is the same company that once appropriated an actress's voice without consent. Ed Zitron, in one of his recent newsletters, highlighted the dangers of not holding such companies accountable. He warned that failing to scrutinize their practices would harm creatives whose work is being appropriated. Zitron also criticized the corporate tendency to integrate AI into products to satisfy investors, which, he argued, detracts from the tech ecosystem’s value and enriches a few at the expense of many.
