So this is definitely different for me, but since I have been sick and unable to write I decided this was an interesting concept to explore.
I actually was introduced to this on Instagram Reels, which I have been watching to keep myself entertained while quarantined in my bedroom. So to humor myself I decided to give this AI a go at trying to write a fitting post for A Geek Girl’s Guide. So here are the top ten K-Pop groups for new listeners according to artificial intelligence:
BTS have become one of the most popular K-pop groups in the world, having achieved massive success both domestically and internationally. Their catchy music, creative visuals, and strong message of self-love and empowerment have resonated with fans of all ages.
BLACKPINK is a four-member girl group that has quickly become one of the most popular K-pop groups in the world thanks to their catchy songs and powerful choreography.
EXO is a nine-member boy group that has been consistently producing high-quality music since their debut in 2012. They have also won numerous awards for their music, performances, and albums.
TWICE is a nine-member girl group that has achieved immense success since their debut in 2015. Their upbeat songs and catchy tunes have earned them a loyal fanbase.
5. Red Velvet
Red Velvet is a five-member girl group that has carved out a unique sound for themselves with their mix of jazz, hip-hop, and pop sounds.
6. MONSTA X
MONSTA X is a seven-member boy group that has gained a dedicated following with their strong vocal performances and intense choreography.
7. Super Junior
Super Junior is an iconic K-pop group that has been around since 2005. They have achieved a loyal fanbase thanks to their catchy songs and performances.
BIGBANG is a five-member boy group that has been one of the most successful K-pop groups since their debut in 2006. They are known for their powerful performances and catchy songs.
SHINee is a five-member boy group that has been around since 2008. Their music and performances have earned them a dedicated fanbase, as well as numerous awards.
10. Girls’ Generation
Girls’ Generation is an iconic nine-member girl group that debuted in 2007. They have won numerous awards for their music and performances, and have become one of the most successful K-pop groups of all time.
Do I agree with the AI? For the most part, sure. There are some groups that I wouldn’t include because they are necessarily the best representation for what K-Pop is currently, but all of these groups are ones I have listened to numerous times while getting into the genre.
Now the AI just wrote the words, while I did all other formatting and added imagery, which goes to show you that a computer couldn’t do everything. I can believe that at some point an AI could do it all though.
Here is the ultimate criticism I have with the AI’s post: it is pulling the information from pre-existing content. A computer can’t develop these opinions or tastes. It can make some logical conclusions based on what people have said, but its still just regurgitation of existing thoughts. So while this was a fun experiment, it isn’t something I will choose to utilize since I want to share my own thoughts and ideas. AI can never replace the human side of creativity, so we shouldn’t let it become a norm.
