Generative not defenitive

The advances of generative AI in the last year are extremely impressive. But as services like ChatGPT, Midjourney, and Bard become more popular it is obvious that they are not all-knowing and cannot always give perfect answers (or draw hands with five fingers).

However, as tools to help generate creative output they are already very, very good. Drafting letters, documents, images etc. Yes, final output still gets better with a human touch, but the tools create high quality drafts and save a lot of time.

In the end, AI is likely to be a strong driver for increased productivity by “just” being generative, not by giving definitive answers better than traditional search or Wikipedia.
