The Future of the Creative Domain: The Infinite Fusion of AI and Humans

When we watch a movie, listen to a song, or read a poem, we often naturally assume that it was created by human hands. However, recent advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are slowly challenging this perception. AI can paint pictures, write poetry, compose music, and create pieces indistinguishable from those made by humans. Against this backdrop, I would like to explore the theme of a future where “distinguishing between AI and human becomes impossible.”

First and foremost, AI learns from human behavior, emotions, and thoughts as a learning model. This means that the works created by AI can be said to reflect the human nature inherent in the data it was trained on. Therefore, the art produced by AI inherently carries a part of human creativity in its generation process.

However, unless it is explicitly stated that the work was created by AI, many people might not realize that it was generated by AI. Whether this becomes an issue can be viewed from two major perspectives.

One perspective questions whether this becomes a problem from the standpoint of honesty and transparency. Concealing the fact that it was created by AI could create informational asymmetry towards the viewers, readers, or listeners. This could potentially pose a problem, especially from a commercial point of view.

But from another perspective, this could be seen as a new form of expressing “the author’s intent”. The act of creating works using AI is a form of artistic activity in itself, and by hiding the fact that it was created by AI, it can emphasize the direct interaction between the work and its audience.

In such a future, it might be difficult to judge whether a work was created by a human or AI. However, this can offer a new perspective for evaluating works. Instead of focusing on “who created the work”, the focus shifts to “how the work moves our emotions and thoughts”.

We might feel that AI is invading the human creative domain. However, it could also be viewed as a chance for AI to augment human creativity and unlock new possibilities for artistic expression. In this new epoch, we should focus not on “AI or human”, but on “how we feel and think”. And we should understand that this is a universal value shared by all works we experience.
