Girija is another friend of mine from the Reset Conference. Girija and I got to chat about using AI in your business. AI is a great tool to be utilizing, but there are many things to consider, which we cover in this episode. Here are the main things we discussed:
- Why we all need to create to market and keep up on social media, even if we aren’t an influencer
- What were Girija’s initial thoughts on AI, as a legal professional
- Fear of losing jobs to AI
- The biggest opportunities for creatives and photographers when it comes to AI software
- Girija’s caution for ownership and claiming AI work; how copyright law works with it
- The importance of reading the terms and conditions of a shared platform
- Content creation and ChatGPT
- Not relying on AI to create everything for you
- Having transparency with your work
A few highlights from this episode:
[6:18] – I think in today’s world, we are all creatives. We have to create. We cannot just be sitting. We either have to have a team creating for us or we’re the one-man show, and we have to create.
[10:46] – There are limitations. There’s a limitation to the creativity and what that translates into with regards to ownership, and that’s something that everybody needs to understand.
[12:43] – Another reason is we need the human factor, the human touch to everything you are doing, and AI cannot replace that. But what AI can replace and make your business a little bit better is to streamline it.
[18:43] – At the end of the day, if it’s totally AI generated and its workings of the AI mind, then it’s not yours.
[30:56] – You have to be the gatekeeper of what is right and what is wrong for your business at the end of the day.
