The rise of AI-powered writing tools like ChatGPT is making it harder for freelance writers to make a living. One woman has already lost her job to AI. This story shows how AI is replacing human workers in many industries, which raises concerns about the future of work and the need to help workers who have lost their jobs.
Will AI take our jobs? Well, the topic is still up for debate, and there is no clear answer. One woman has already said that ChatGPT caused her to lose her job, but she is not the only one. A talented writer and stand-up comedian recently told the story of how she unexpectedly became virally famous, not for her wit or beauty, but because she lost her job to AI (AI).
This creative freelancer had been working as a copywriter for a number of brands for a number of years, writing content for them. However, as AI started to improve, it started to hurt her ability to make a living.
At first, the work slowed down for her bit by bit. She was getting fewer and fewer writing jobs, which made her doubt her own skills as a writer. But it turned out that it wasn’t because of her skills. The real reason her freelance work went down was that AI-powered writing tools, especially ChatGPT, became more and more popular with clients who were looking for ways to save money.
Many of her clients, mostly small businesses, startups, and young brands, chose AI technology to handle their copywriting needs at a lower cost. Because of this, the writer’s once-successful freelance career started to fall apart, and she had to look desperately for new work in a job market that was already full.
Even though she tried hard, it was hard for her to find a new job. She had a lot of interviews, but none of them worked out, so she was out of work for months. She was having trouble paying her bills, so she thought about a job where she would teach an AI to write just like her, but better, faster, and cheaper. Thoughts of giving up her future job prospects were less important than immediate needs like food and shelter, which made it hard for her to say no.
But luck had other ideas, and she didn’t get the job training AI. Instead, she became a brand ambassador and gave out samples at grocery stores to make ends meet while she kept looking for work in her field.
Since its launch two months ago, ChatGPT has grown so quickly that it now has more than 100 million users. As more people use the AI and give it instructions, it keeps getting better. This is a real threat to writers like her and people in other fields.
This writer’s problems may be just the start of a bigger trend, though. Reports show that AI has already caused the loss of thousands of jobs, and the creative industries are not safe from this wave of automation.
In the end, her story shows how AI is changing traditional jobs, even creative ones, where cost-effectiveness is often more important than creativity. As technology improves, more workers may face similar problems. This forces society to deal with the effects of automation on the job market and the need for ways to help workers who have lost their jobs.
