8 Predictions on How Generative AI Will Change Our Lives Forever


As generative AI becomes more commonplace, just how will it change our lives? Here, we explore eight predictions.

Generative AI has taken the world by storm and there’s no going back. On one hand, you have people who are excited about the tech and are looking to experience all the ways it will be helpful. On the other hand, there are people who show concern about how the tech may be used in a dangerous capacity.

In this list, we’re counting down some of our top predictions on how generative AI is likely to change our lives going forward to give you a more realistic picture of what to expect from it.

Synthetic media (aka AI-generated media) will become the norm in the not-so-distant future. That means most of the content you’ll see on your screen will be generated by AI, not an actual human. AI already helps us create content, that’s true, but there’s a difference between using AI as an assistant and using AI as a creator.

In the former case, most of the content is generated by a human and AI is simply used to speed up the process and make adjustments, meaning AI has a limited role. In the latter case, AI is the one generating most of the content and the human is passively managing the project in the background, correcting errors and refining prompts.

One of the biggest problems with generative AI is the inevitability of people using it to impersonate other people. We’ve already seen deepfake technology cause similar problems, and as the tech advances further at an exponential rate, it will become increasingly more difficult to differentiate between what’s real and what’s fake.
