Generative AI is a form of artificial intelligence that can create a range of content such as text, imagery, audio and synthetic data. As of recent, generative AI is being celebrated for its text-to-image generation where it creates high-quality text, graphics and videos in seconds.
Generative technology was actually introduced in the 1960s in chatbots. However, it was only in 2014 when generative adversarial networks (GANs) were introduced that generative AI could create more convincing images, videos and audio. GANs are a machine learning algorithm.

How Generative AI works
Generative AI models use neural networks to locate the patterns and formats within existing data to then generate new and unique content. Recent breakthroughs for generative AI models is its ability to support different learning approaches. Including the ability to leverage a large amount of unlabeled data to create foundation models. Both Stable Diffusion and GPT-4 are foundational models that highlight to users the power of machine learning models and the power of language.
Generative AI systems include image generators (e.g. Midjourney or DALL-E), large language models (e.g. GPT-4. Google Bard), code generation tools, or audio generation tools. The OpenAI ChatGPT, is a highly popular chatbot that uses deep learning and natural language processing to process large amounts of data to output quick and intelligent responses.
Generative AI creates new content by receiving text inputs then generating outputs based on the prompts given. The AI technology uses the generative AI tools to facilitate many tasks including advertising and business projects to purely assisting users own creativity.
How to use and get access to generative AI
It’s very straightforward to use generative AI. Decide what you want to use it for whether its image generator, language model or code generator etc. Then get access to that software and try out the generative AI.
