AI has replaced humans in many job functions, from financial reporting to customer service. But those of us in creative industries like to think there’s an art to our jobs that a machine couldn’t possibly replicate. Or could it?
This question prompted Team One to experiment with the creative capabilities of machines. Because filmmaking is such a uniquely creative process, roles in filmmaking were examined to determine what roles a machine could fill. Was it possible to make a film while relying on machines for concept, direction and editing?
Team one discovered that it was, and this experiment marks a jumping off point for a discussion about AI's impact on creativity today and in the future.
