In the recently released report, Voices team members surveyed hundreds of creatives in various sectors to understand how these professionals perceive how AI will impact their work. They found that while many professionals are excited about the new opportunities AI offers, they are also concerned about the ethics of using it.

A June 2023 report by McKinsey and Company notes that generative AI has become increasingly competent at a wider range of routine tasks. However, the abilities most often reported in the media are its ability to perform creative tasks, such as writing text, composing music, and making art.
Voice’s survey results show that 57% of creatives already use AI in their work, but not generative AI. Although this type of AI can perform creative tasks, two-thirds of creatives surveyed don’t feel threatened by it and believe it will create new human job opportunities.
A major concern about the ethics of AI is using existing creative data to train algorithms. Voices suggests the “three C’s” (consent, credit, compensation) framework to guide AI training in the voice-over industry. According to this framework, voice-over artists should know their voice is being used in AI training and they should be credited and compensated for their work.
