Five Hollywood writers discuss AI’s impact on their careers
Brookings
2024.04.16
Recent advances in generative artificial intelligence (AI) are poised to substantially disrupt the writing profession. According to forthcoming Brookings research, writers and authors are 100% exposed to generative AI―the highest possible exposure score.

In 2023, generative AI‘s potential threat was at the forefront of a labor dispute between Hollywood writers and the studios that employ them. That May, the 11,000-plus members of the Writers Guild of America went on strike. After 148 days, the union secured a contract with historic protections for writers.

In this first set of stories in an ongoing series, five Hollywood writers offer their reflections from the frontlines of these efforts to shape the way generative AI impacts their work. They share their perspectives on generative AI, what is at stake for themselves and society, and what Washington, D.C. policymakers as well as workers in other professions can learn from their experiences.

Learn more about the AI protections that Hollywood writers secured and their implications for other workers in this case study.
