In the dawn of Generative AI, where the extraordinary becomes the new normal, and the possibilities are as limitless as our collective imagination. While Generative AI has permeated every nook and cranny of the world, rewriting the very DNA of innovation, the extensive and explosive use of Generative AI has created a fear of humans being replaced by machines. Speaking about the emerging threat, Samantray opined that “this fear is not new to us, as a similar prediction was made with the advent of computers in 2000. But we all know computers haven’t replaced humans but rather created more job opportunities for us. He added that generative AI would not replace humans but rather assist in completing mundane and tedious jobs saving more time for creative work with increased efficiency.”
