AI Transformation

Authored by: Da Sachin Sharma, AI Evangelist and Chief Brand/Creative Officer, Mobilla

As we step into the second month of the year, the global job landscape is undergoing significant transformation, marked by approximately 25,000 job cuts worldwide, including India. A considerable portion of these changes is attributed to the rapid integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) across various industries. Companies are not only implementing AI but are also developing tools aimed at automating business processes, signaling a pivotal shift in the workforce dynamics.

The Impact on Freelancers and Voiceover Artists

The advent of AI, particularly LLMs and generative models for images and audio, has revolutionized traditional freelancing platforms like Fiverr. Freelancers, who once thrived on these platforms, find themselves competing against AI capabilities that offer more cost-effective solutions. Similarly, the voiceover and dubbing industry feels the brunt of AI, with technology replacing human dubbing artists. However, some voiceover artists are adapting by selling clones of their voices, becoming early adopters of a new digital frontier. Despite the potential for earning royalties, their overall income is anticipated to decline, urging them to seek alternative revenue streams.

AI’s “Fun Side” vs. Practical Applications in India

In India, the general sentiment towards AI leans towards its entertainment value, such as creating manipulated images or deepfake videos. However, the critical implications of AI in the job market and its potential to enhance business processes remain underexplored. It’s crucial for the workforce to pivot towards understanding and integrating AI tools into their skill sets, ensuring they remain relevant in an evolving job market.

The Future of Industries and Digital Marketing

The landscape of various industries, including how people use search engines and engage with digital content, is poised for a transformation. The shift towards AI-driven platforms like Google’s Gemini and ChatGPT suggests a move away from traditional SEO towards bot-based strategies. This change not only highlights the need for digital marketers to adapt but also raises concerns about bias in AI models, which are shaped by the data they’re fed.

The Walt Disney Company’s Leap into AI

The Walt Disney Company’s announcement to include ElevenLabs, a voice AI company, in its 2024 Disney Accelerator program underscores the entertainment giant’s commitment to innovation. This collaboration aims to expand Disney’s storytelling capabilities across languages, enhancing global accessibility and engagement. While the move towards AI-dubbed movies is exciting, it also raises questions about the implications for job security in traditional dubbing roles.

Embracing AI: A Call to Action

The integration of AI across industries is not just a trend but a shift that requires immediate attention and action from professionals. The narrative is clear: it’s imperative to become AI-ready, not just to stay competitive but to leverage AI as a tool for growth, creativity, and innovation. As we navigate this transformative era, the blend of human creativity with AI’s capabilities will be the cornerstone of success.
