Is AI here to save the day or to steal our jobs. AI has come leaps and bounds recently but is it up to the task?


OpenAI’s new chatGPT is a revolutionary artificial intelligence (AI) model that allows users to have natural and intuitive conversations with a machine. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with machines, and could have a significant impact on various industries, including web development and graphic design.

In the field of web development, chatGPT could potentially be used to create more sophisticated chatbots that can assist with customer service inquiries or even handle certain tasks such as booking appointments or making purchases. These chatbots could potentially reduce the workload for web developers and allow them to focus on more complex projects.

Similarly, in the field of graphic design, chatGPT could be used to create AI-powered design assistants that can generate ideas and concepts for designers to work with. This could help designers save time on more mundane tasks and allow them to focus on the creative aspects of their work.

However, the rise of AI in these fields also raises concerns about job displacement. As AI becomes more advanced, it’s possible that some tasks currently performed by web developers and graphic designers could be automated, potentially leading to job losses in these fields.

On the other hand, the use of AI could also lead to new job opportunities, as companies may need to hire people with expertise in training and managing AI systems. Additionally, the use of AI could potentially allow web developers and graphic designers to take on more complex projects and tackle more ambitious challenges, potentially leading to career advancement and growth.

It’s important to note that the impact of AI on these fields is still largely unknown and will likely depend on how the technology is adopted and implemented. However, it’s clear that chatGPT and other AI technologies have the potential to significantly shape the future of web development and graphic design.

As such, it’s important for professionals in these fields to stay up to date on the latest AI technologies and to consider how they may impact their work. This may involve learning new skills or staying current with the latest trends in AI development.

Overall, the rise of AI and chatGPT in particular has the potential to bring about significant changes in the fields of web development and graphic design. While there may be some concerns about job displacement, the use of AI could also lead to new opportunities and allow professionals in these fields to take on more complex and challenging projects. It’s important for professionals to stay informed and adapt to these changes in order to remain competitive in the rapidly evolving world of AI.

The above was written by ChatGPT after a simple command:

“Write a 600 word blog post about openai’s new chatGPT and the rise of AI and how it may affect those in the web development and graphic design fields.”



AI’s are appearing everywhere, from the Lensa App though to the developments from the OpenAi team but is it ready to take over our jobs?

Well, not yet but it can definitely assist.

Whilst the above was written after a quick prompt, it failed a plagiarism check with only 50% of the content being original. The prompt also asked for a 600-word blog post but the AI only delivered 435 so whilst we are on the right track and that ChatGPT is an amazing leap, I think your job (and ours) is safe for now.
