We’re living through the palace revolution of artificial intelligence. Creatives, once thought immune to the looming threat of AI, are suddenly competing with software like Open AI's Dall-E and Jasper’s text-generation platform, which use neural networks to generate original images and text. These tools are new enough that we’ve only just begun to see how they will reshape creative industries including film, literature, art and architecture. But their sudden ubiquity makes it certain that the future of creativity will have some assistance from AI.
We identified 14 creators who are among the first to experiment with the new generative AI tools—often with dazzling results.
