You're skeptical of AI

"Will it help me or destroy me"? 🤔 … As you will see below

We're wayy past that conversation.👀

Top 5 Generative AI Trends for Every Creator Alive

Notion Avatar

Or maybe you’re not even asking that question.

Maybe you’re heavily using AI in your creative endeavor already.


You guessed it!

Notion Avatar

Either way, it’s undeniable that AI is transforming industries across the board.

By 2030, generative AI is expected to be valued $78.6 billion.

Content creation, artistic ideas, fashion design…you name it. There is an AI tool or platform out there that is rocking the boat and making some big waves.

I’ll tell you about 5 of these big waves.

1. Custom GPTs

OpenAI announced custom GPTs, also called “GPTs,” on November 2023 at their first-ever Developer Day conference in San Francisco.

Chances are you probably already use Chat GPT

Chat GPT is by far one of the most famous examples of Generative AI Trends.

So, think of GPTs like Chat GPT on steroids!


Are they any better than BARD or Bing Chat?

Notion Avatar

Bing Chat is Chat GPT 4, by the way. (Or at least it’s powered by it) …

And no, it’s not necessarily about being better.

Although, I’d have said it is better than BARD!

Unlike Regular Chatgpt, Custom GPTs Can Be Fine-Tuned to a Creator’s Specific Style or Thematic Requirements

You can upload videos, documents, and text that provide information not available online …


Whoa, that’s somewhat scary

Notion Avatar

Scary good, am I right?


Both 👀

Can anyone create them?

Notion Avatar

Anyone with a GPT-4 subscription can create their own custom GPT based on their project ideas.

There are already examples like Blog Expert and Creative Writing Coach that have built-in customization that gives you the basis of your writing before you even have to prompt the LLM.


Custom GPTs allow you to produce more relevant articles or scripts at speed.



Can I create one that knows my workflow

So I don’t have to repeat my conditioning prompts?

Notion Avatar

Exactly …

But you don’t always have to build the GPTs.

OpenAI will offer publicly available GPTs in a ‘GPT Store’ similar to how the App Store works.

So basically if you created a custom GPT, and you think it’s helpful to the community, you could publish it to the ‘GPT Store’ and potentially even earn an income based on the number of users.

2. Gen Video Production

Producing video content is now faster, cheaper, and simpler than ever.

Video generation combines CNNs (Convolutional Neural Networks), GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks), and transformer models to learn, compete, and capture temporal relationships in video frames for realistic synthesis.

Take a look:


👆 This is Descript for example.

One of the best tools out there along with Runway ML enables you to apply complex effects to videos with just a few clicks.

On Descript, you edit videos as if you’re editing a Word Doc. You have to see it to believe it.

It means access to high-quality production at a fraction of the time and price. 

For lack of a better term: That’s Dope! 😁


The result has been the decentralization of production power slowly but surely — with quality videos now emerging from bedrooms instead of studios.

Some of the already existing video editing tools are getting an AI boost as well.

Sensei, which is part of After Effects, can correct color, remove objects, and even auto-reframe shots for different aspect ratios.


Well in the future …

You’re gonna be able to produce videos entirely with AI, with absolutely no physical camera.

Notion Avatar

In the future?

You can do that right now with tools similar to what we mentioned above!


Doesn’t that pose some ethical concerns?

Notion Avatar

Yes, it does.

Although there are some grey areas.

Platforms like YouTube will require creators to inform viewers by labeling fully AI-generated content.

I think this is what matters the most when it comes to those regulations:

  • Does the policy clearly define what constitutes “misleading content”?
  • Does it differentiate between malicious and unintentional misinformation?
  • Does it focus solely on video and deepfakes, or encompass other mediums that spread misinformation?
  • How is original content defined?
  • How do we differentiate between truly “Original” and “AI-Generated”

3. Generative Visual Arts

No one can deny the magic of generative art.

At the time of writing this, it is already way advanced!

For example, I just went to Bing Images, which uses DallE-3, and used this prompt:

“A moss-covered stone archway framing a view of a hidden valley, with a meandering stream and wildflowers in bloom” …

And this is what it came up with:


Looks real … but it may be slightly clunky right now similar to when Spacewar! came out in the 1960s, it shows the huge potential of the technology and how it will only exponentially improve at an incredible pace.

I must admit, it’s really fun to generate these images just from your imagination.

I got another one: “An octopus in the dark, award-winning photography and cinematic shot style, 4K”


I’ve no words …

Here is another one using Adobe Firefly.

Prompt: “Super detailed up photo of a Blue Passion Flower” …


That’s Insane! 👀

Notion Avatar

Algorithms are used to create unique artworks that can mimic various styles or generate entirely new forms of visual expression.


Okay but what can I use it for?

Notion Avatar
  • Visualize Concepts and Ideas: Illustrating stories, or abstract ideas using Generative AI
  • Generate Unique Artwork: Creating surreal landscapes, fantastical creatures, and so on
  • Experiment With Different Styles and Techniques: Mimicking existing artistic styles
  • Web design and Stock Images: use it for your web content (when it makes sense)
  • Design Product Mockups and Prototypes: Quickly visualize product concepts (for iteration)

Research like Google’s “Imagen” transforms simple images into whatever you can (or can’t) imagine

AI is also changing the way art is curated and experienced. Museums are increasingly integrating AI across various aspects, enhancing visitor experiences and streamlining operations.


Refik Anadol’s Unsupervised is an AI-generated artwork that constantly changes. Exhibited in MoMA, the piece constantly evolves in response to its environment, creating art that “could exist but doesn’t” in the museum’s archive. 

Dirk Boll of Christie’s London highlights the value of AI in operations for data mining and analysis, greatly speeding up cataloging and preparation work that previously took days.

4. Multi-Modal Models

We can communicate with LLMs using text input and that’s cool and all but …

What if we wanted them to see stuff? Or hear what we say? Or talk back to us?

Well, that’s exactly what a Multi-modal Model refer to:

AI systems that can process and relate information from multiple modalities or formats, such as text, images, audio, and video.

To Accomplish Diverse AI Tasks, Multi-Modal Models Merge Multiple Uni-Modal Data Representations Into a Shared Feature Space.


Just like we have cognitive skills …

Notion Avatar

Yes, we humans as far as we know ourselves, are intelligent, it only makes sense if we wanted to build artificial intelligence that it also has similar if not more input nodes.


But this is kind of theoretical isn’t it?

Notion Avatar

It very much isn’t.

Google is the first to develop an actually usable Visual + Audio communicative AI capable of not just identifying but also reasoning about what it sees.

Take a look:


Meta, behind the scenes is also working on Multimodal generative AI systems.

In their blog post, they stated that they had already put this form of AI on commercial products such as the Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses.

5. Browsing and Coding V2

AI has changed browsing and the dissemination of information forever.


How so?

Notion Avatar

It powers recommendation systems that provide personalized suggestions and tailored search results based on each user’s interests, browsing history, and context.

One of my favorite tools for making a quick search (like factual stuff), or general knowledge is Perplexity.


It saves me those countless seconds wasted clicking away in my browsing track record 😅

Perplexity has become so famous now that it’s become a trend!

AI algorithms better understand the context, intent, and meaning behind searches and user journeys to provide more personalized and relevant results. Search becomes more of a continuous assistive experience versus one-off lookups.

But …

Ironically Google Search is also an AI algorithm, the difference is the content you get can be summarized by AI or written by Humans.

Personally, unless it’s a broad fact or a quick look-up, I’d have a hard time trusting AI-provided information because it could be obsolete or erroneous.

Here are some of the most typical things we see search engines and search-focused artificial intelligence platforms doing these days:

  • Multimodal Search. Users can search using a mix of text, images, voice, video, and other modes together. For example, searching for a piece of clothing by providing a photo and a text description.
  • Semantic Knowledge Retrieval. Instead of top-ranked hits, search aims to provide direct access to stored facts and knowledge concepts that users are seeking.
  • Enhanced Insights Generation. Uncovers valuable insights, patterns, and signals within underlying data sources that users may not have considered in traditional search queries.
  • Precise Recommendations: Based on an awareness of user activities, interests, and data, more precise recommendations can be provided without explicit searching.

Okay, what about Coding?

Notion Avatar

Oh, yeah.

The elephant in the room!

Key players like GitHub’s Copilot (now powered by GPT-4) are pushing boundaries, offering capabilities like code explanation and automated commit messages.


Google’s Duet AI adds seamless integration with cloud and documentation, while JetBrains enters the arena with its own multi-model AI assistant.


These advances aim to empower programmers by suggesting code, deciphering complex codebases, and even generating tests and documentation.

The More You Rely on AI, the Less Skilled You Become at What the AI Does.

AI coding tools unleash enormous potential for faster growth via augmented intelligence. But at the end of the day, you gotta be aware of what the AI is doing.

As a programmer, maintain your skills strong, and use these tools sparingly rather than as a crutch, and give prudent human oversight.



What are custom GPT models and how can I train them?

Custom GPT models allow you to fine-tune a base language model like GPT-4 on a specialized dataset to create an AI assistant customized for your field. As few as 100 examples may suffice for pre-training.

Can AI really help me generate videos now?

Yes, through generative video models like GoVid, even text prompts can produce original video scenes and sequences. This saves video creators time and budgets while inspiring new directions.

How is AI changing visual arts and photography?

Leading AI image generators like DALL-E 3, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion enable creators to manifest imagination into photorealistic images simply through text prompts.

Can coding be automated with AI too?

Kinda, the tech is not fully there but simple PHP and JS code can be written. Even plain English descriptions can be translated into running code. This makes application development 10x faster.

How can AI transform browsing and discovery?

Smart AI creative engines can index multimedia portfolios, profiles, and catalogs according to visual style, textual themes, and creative directions. This enables far richer browsing, recommendations, and collaboration.


Generative AI is a game-changer for creativity.

It can help us imagine new possibilities, enhance our work, empower our expression, connect with others, and value our originality. But it also poses risks to our identity, morality, diversity, and rights.

Generative AI is not a threat or a replacement for human creativity, but a partner and a catalyst. Or at least it’s not supposed to be.
