"Future Influencer" is an unconventional sci-fi adventure where humanity and AI join forces to paint images of the future. Each episode of this light-hearted journey will tickle your imagination and offer a much-needed dose of fun in our ever-evolving digital age. So, why not come along for the ride?

After a while, the algorithms found their voice, and the fears of the resistance grew once more. We thought, ‘this was it,’ the tide had finally turned, and machines would take all the art jobs.

But the tide didn’t turn; it merely split. Humans never truly understood art created by the machines any more than they could grasp a whale song. We recognized the beauty of algorithm-crafted art but couldn’t ‘see’ robot art the way software could, nor could we create it.

No, the emerging artists of the resistance remained just as destitute as those who came before the rise of the machines.

Use the comments to complete the following, “The algorithms painted some ____ on the side.”
