Creativity and AI: Instrument of Fraud

The recent discussions about authorship and creativity in a digital age expose the complexity of the relationship between humans and machines. AI technologies such as GPT-4 raise questions about authenticity, originality and value of created content. In this blog we dive deeper into this matter and analyze the role of GPT-4 as a tool versus that of a fraudulent entity in the writing process.

Author vs. AI

GPT-4: An Instrument of CreativityGPT-4, while powerful and versatile, functions as a tool that responds to user-entered prompts. These prompts direct the direction of the generated text as the system mimics patterns and styles from the data it was trained on. The substantive outcome is an interplay between human instruction and machine interpretation, so that GPT-4 can be seen as an extension of the user's creativity.

Authorship: A Shared ResponsibilityIf we use GPT-4 as a writing aid, the idea of authorship shifts somewhat. The user, providing original prompts and cues, maintains control and intent, while the AI takes on the task of phrasing and style. The end product is a collaborative outcome where human creativity and artificial intelligence go hand in hand. It would therefore be unfair to classify GPT-4 as 'fraud' given that it does not operate without human input or direction.

The Changing Role of the AuthorAs AI takes on an increasingly prominent role, the role of the author is inevitably being redefined. The author becomes not only a creator, but also a curator, someone who directs the process and selectively handles the content generated by AI. In this new landscape, the author's power lies in effectively utilizing and guiding technology to produce unique and valuable works.

ConclusionThe use of AI like GPT-4 in the creative process is not so much fraudulent, but rather represents an evolutionary step in how we create and understand content. Rather than seeing technology as a threat to originality and authorship, we should embrace it as a complementary tool that opens up new possibilities and perspectives. It is up to us to use these powerful resources responsibly and ethically to realize a future of shared creativity and innovation.
