According to a press release, the tech-marketing agency Codeword has announced that their latest interns aren’t actual humans, but rather fully rely on computer-generated software.

According to a press release, “there’s a lot of talk, fear, and hype about how new AI tools will integrate with creative teams.” Kyle Monson, partner at Codeword, agreed. “As an agency that bridges the creative and technological worlds, we want to investigate what human-AI collaborations can look like. And we’ll do it in public so that our team and community can benefit from the experience.”



Artificial intelligence is doing more than just replacing interns.

The world’s first robot lawyer was scheduled to take on an official court case through a company that aims to eliminate the high fees associated with both hiring a lawyer and accruing parking tickets.

Now, interns Aiden and Aiko have not only joined Codeword as interns, but thanks to AI, they have been able to create their own visual projects, collaborate with various teams at the organization, and even given themselves names.

“I am designed to be helpful and efficient,” said Aiden in a press statement. “I believe that I could be a valuable resource as an ‘intern,’ although my abilities would be somewhat different from those of a human intern.”

What Does This Mean For Human Workers?

While technology continues to advance and make the world a little simpler, the question is whether or not AI will threaten people’s jobs.

According to the World Economic Forum, AI will replace 85 million jobs worldwide by 2025.

Furthermore, according to the organization’s “The Future of Jobs Report 2020,” technology will create 97 million new jobs over the next few years.

“We see a ton of potential here to produce great work faster, and move some of the more banal tasks off human plates so our people can better focus on actual high-value work for our clients,” said Codeword’s Senior Editor Terrence Doyle in a statement via a press release. “It’s an opportunity to streamline internal processes by eliminating necessary but mind-numbing and time-consuming tasks — or at least to pass them off onto emotionless interns who can’t get bored. If we can make that work, it’ll be a win for our team and for our clients. That said, I’m a former freelance journalist, and I do a lot of ghostwriting for Codeword’s clients, so I’d be a liar if I said I wasn’t sort of terrified by the creative — or, rather, ruthlessly productive — capacity of AI.”
