Content creators are understandably wary of the future of AI. While the tech is still rudimentary, it’s growing fast. Many worry that AI content creation could someday replace creators and build a landscape of identical content mush.
How can we prevent it? By using AI to boost our content creation, not replace it. Here are 15 AI content creation tools that can empower your team to create better, faster, smarter stuff.
What is AI content creation?
“Content” can be a pretty vague term—some may say too vague—but it’s often used to refer to creative work produced for business and marketing purposes. Most movie directors wouldn’t call themselves “content creators,” but Warner Bros. might refer to their overall library as “content.”
For most businesses, content creation falls into a few categories:
- Graphic design
- Social media posts
AI content creation is the production of any type of creative content with the help of AI. Sometimes, that means the AI is creating the content itself. But it usually means that it’s helping to generate ideas, identify trends, spruce up content for SEO, or otherwise aid creatives.
How can AI create content?
Whether or not the AI actually “creates” the content is a matter of discussion. Machine learning tools like ChatGPT use their access to huge volumes of data (like, the entire internet) to train themselves to respond to user input.
These programs can understand language and generate new responses based on their knowledge base.
