162. AI and its Promise of Utopia – Part 4 – Carey Kight and AI in Advertising

Seemingly overnight, every company and social media platform has an AI presence that promises you a better experience, a more efficient engagement, and all the promises of better tomorrows, greater wealth, and a four hour workweek. While science fiction, the harbinger of all things new, shiny and terrifying, has been telling us this was coming for decades, it seems none of us got the memo, and now we are surprised (or perhaps distracted) by the shiny new object in the room. AI has ramifications in all areas of life, especially with the arts, where work has been avoided instead of praised in a society that looks at efficiency and ROI as golden calves worthy of consuming worship.

This week Ryan, Garreth, and Cody sit down with director, producer, writer, podcaster, and all-around-great-guy, Carey Kight, to talk about how AI may or may not change the landscape of advertising. In a creative industry that thrives on efficiency and productivity, is AI a tool to revolutionize processes, or is it more akin to opening Pandora’s box?

You can check out Carey’s work at the Circus Maximus website, on his personal website, or by following his podcast, Veteran Made.
