Generative At: Art from Algorithms

With all the buzz around ChatGPT, it is time to take a deep dive into the world of generative AI.

Most of us have the same questions… What is it? How does it work? What can we use it for?

Generative AI is an area of artificial intelligence that focuses on creating machines capable of generating content on their own.

It involves the use of deep learning algorithms and neural networks to generate new content such as images, videos, music, and text.

How Does Generative AI Work?

Generative AI uses a neural network to learn patterns and features from a training dataset It then uses stored knowledge to generate new content.

Are there more than one type of generative AI?

Well, there are two main types:

Discriminative models

Discriminative models

Discriminative models learn to distinguish between different classes of data.

Generative models learn to generate new data that is similar to the stored data.

Where can we use generative AI?

Music, art and natural languages. You name it! The promise of generative AI is far reaching. It may be adopted by every industry to some degree in the near future.

Generative AI in image generation

Generative AI has a wide range of applications in image generation, including creating realistic images for video games and movies, generating artistic images, and even generating images for medical imaging.

Generative AI in Music creation

Generative AI can also be used to create music. By analyzing and learning from existing music, generative AI can generate new music that is similar in style and genre.

Can generative AI be used for natural language processing in traditional formats?

Well, Chat GPT says “yes”.  Generative AI can also be used for natural language processing tasks such as language translation, text generation, and speech synthesis.

Are all onboard with generative AI?

Well, not everyone is happy with generative AI platforms like ChatGPT and DALL.E2.

Many experts have raised issues like:       - Bias and discrimination: Generative AI can amplify creator’s biases        - Ownership and control: People do not have control over their work       - Accountability and privacy: The potential to collect vast amounts of personal data

What is the future of Generative AI?

As AI technologies continue to advance, generative AI may soon be able to create an entire movie all by itself.

It will write, develop and distribute its own movie.  “ChatGPT 3: Syntax Assassin” or “ChatGPT and the Thesaurus of Doom”

Generative AI is a rapidly growing field with many exciting applications in image and music generation, natural language processing, and who knows what may be next.

The future is AI and it is being generated as of this very moment.
