#KeIGF2024 : Digital Creative Industries: AI & Film

0
The balance between AI advancements and the protection of human creativity
is a nuanced challenge. AI can significantly enhance the creative process
by offering new tools and efficiencies, but it also raises concerns about
originality, intellectual property, and the erosion of human artistic
expression.

There is a need to create frameworks that ensure AI serves as an enabler
rather than a replacement. This includes implementing ethical guidelines
for AI use in creative industries, ensuring fair compensation and
recognition for human creators, and fostering collaboration between AI and
artists to amplify rather than diminish human creativity.

Reskilling for all is no longer an option, rather a necessity if one wants
to remain relevant!
