Human Humor during the Popularity Boom of AI
The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) has been a significant development in recent years. It's been around for a while, but it has now reached a new level of capabilities that are quite impressive. AI can write essays, draw art, give you outlines and ideas for topics - it's great. However, this also poses a sudden realization that a lot of careers and jobs will be viewed with more scrutiny as to whether they're as valuable as they used to be.
Even our education is at stake because AI writes papers so well that you can turn them in for a solid grade. It also poses a challenge to the creative field because it can either be a superficial replacement of human creativity or a tool to assist it. A lot of content can be generated, but what will help you differentiate yourself from the rest?
Sharing the content with your sense of humor!
It's one of the best ways to stand out using your inherent personality. In this article, we'll discuss how to have the upper hand during the rising popularity of AI and how humor can make you a more valuable human.
Humor is Human
The more human you are, the more you're able to stand out from all the noise. And there's no better way to express your human side than by mastering your sense of humor. While AI can create more consistently, so can the competition. Consider anyone who has access to this tool having the same capabilities. What it doesn't have is your personal way of relaying those capabilities. It brings up your opportunity to let what makes you unique really shine.
We asked AI to write some jokes, and some of them were good, but not all. For the most part, AI understands puns and formulaic jokes. Dad joke tellers beware, your favorite pass time will soon be replaced. However, when you say a joke and add that human touch to it, it just makes it so much better. Or when there's a funny anecdote, the more visuals it has, and the more outlandish it is, the funnier it is.
For example, we wrote a funny short anecdote about how humans survive an AI apocalypse saying dad jokes:
As the AI apocalypse loomed, humanity was desperate for a way to survive the relentless onslaught of machine intelligence. But no matter how many advanced weapons they developed, it seemed like they were always one step behind. That's when one brave soul stepped forward with a simple solution: dad jokes.
At first, the idea was met with skepticism. Could a well-timed pun or groan-inducing one-liner really save humanity from extinction? But as the robots grew more and more advanced, it became clear that they were no match for the power of a good dad joke. Soon, entire armies of humans were deployed, armed only with their wits and their terrible sense of humor. And against all odds, it worked.
The robots, unable to comprehend the sheer stupidity of the jokes, would pause for just long enough to allow the humans to launch their attacks. In the end, it was a victory for humanity. And as the robots lay in smoking ruins, the survivors couldn't help but laugh at the absurdity of it all. The world would never be the same, but at least they could all agree on one thing: puns are the ultimate weapon.
Relaying this story as a human makes it better, more humorous, and entertaining. If someone were to tell you this story, using their voice and emoting the important parts, it would be much more enjoyable than what the AI has written because it has that funny notion to it.
Learning how to use AI in your own unique way is critical. Better prompting, being more aware of how to go through ideas, and knowing which ones to keep can help you search for gems.
