Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being integrated into our daily lives in ways that create efficiencies we have never experienced before. While we may expect AI in some of the less creative processes in our lives, we might not expect it to be affecting the more creative areas of our lives, like design and copywriting, but the truth is artificial intelligence is having a huge influence in these areas too. Today we're going to explore what artificial intelligence means for the future of copywriting.
What is AI?
According to Wikipedia, AI is defined as, "the ability of machines to exhibit intelligent behavior, to learn, reason, and communicate." Artificial intelligence is something that machines are capable of exhibiting and is the ability to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence. Copywriting is one of these tasks. With limited information such as a topic and an opening paragraph AI can automatically research the topic, and outline and write a completely original blog post or article in seconds. As artificial intelligence has advanced in the past few years it has greatly affected the writing industry. In fact, AI has been referred to as the second machine age.
How is AI affecting the future of copywriting?

While we may not be able to fully understand AI at the moment, it is something that's on the horizon and something that has already started to change the world, and it’s going to change the way you write. AI has huge potential in the creative field of copywriting because the truth is, we're living in a digital age where words are becoming a lot more important than they ever were in the past.
