Let’s not mourn the previous however be content material with what’s occurred and grateful for the happiness we’ve skilled. At present, we are saying goodbye to copywriters, these valiant knights of the written phrase.
We want all of them the very best within the afterlife. However any finish can also be a brand new starting. The fireplace and vitality of copywriters continues to be alive, simply in ones and zeros.
Right here come the robots.
Robots: extra human than human?
However is it doable that robots at the moment are additionally going to take our jobs as copywriters? That’s not simple to simply accept.

All properly and good, however that doesn’t imply that robots can even be capable of write convincing texts, does it? Attempts in the past have indicated that there’s no want for us to concern for our jobs.
However that’s all liable to alter if we’re to imagine Persado. The American advertising firm has said that their AI-generated content material with programmed empathy has outperformed a copywriter time and time once more.
