Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a ubiquitous term across various industries for good reasons. What was once a purely hypothetical concept has now become accessible to virtually anyone.
The appeal of AI to businesses is its unprecedented ability to improve automation and consequently scale-up companies. This is more so significant in the creative industry that largely relies on humans to create high-volume, high-quality content in record time.
However, the widespread adoption of AI in the creative industry has also raised concerns about job displacement.
According to a February 2023 study conducted by GWI, 25% of participants worry that their jobs are at risk because of AI. However, it's important to note that this study also found that most people at the top are more likely to pick up AI technology as opposed to bottom up.
We’ve of course discussed this in a previous article, so if you’re keen to find out more, read that and read on!
So, while AI technology has made significant advancements, it remains in a relatively nascent stage when it comes to fully replacing humans.
Instead, it excels as a valuable tool to enhance and streamline creative content creation or to serve as a guiding force in various applications. For example, AI can be used to generate ideas, write content, design graphics and even create music.
In this article, we will provide an in-depth review and user guide for the top AI content creation tools. We will also discuss the potential impact of AI on the creative industry and how businesses can prepare for this change.
Understanding AI content creation
AI has advanced in many ways over the last few years. Image: Unsplash
The AI tools that exist today rely on natural language processing to create or ideate short and long-form content within seconds. All you need to do is key in the prompts and then you can let these platforms work their magic to provide you with a variety of content.
Whether it is product descriptions, Meta descriptions or social media posts, the AI content creation tool will be able to help with all of that. While it can be a powerful tool, there is still a need for a human editor to polish the posts by localising the content into local dialects, adding word count, required keywords and a few other parameters.
What makes AI content creation so fascinating is that it can even go beyond texts. If you were surfing Meta, Instagram or TikTok, you might have noticed the trending use of AI to generate beautiful images, turning text to voice or even as a video filter that allows you to see your imaginations come to life.
More than that, it also offers a powerful planning and optimising feature to ensure your content is being directed at your potential or existing customers.
Other than its ability to create high-quality content, an AI content creation tool reduces downtime and potentially eradicates creative bottlenecks to produce marketing materials in an express timeline and streamline complex processes.
