Artificial Intelligence

A Definition

What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?


From social media to tourism, from public service to the service industry, people are interacting with artificial intelligence every day and have been so doing so for quite some time! Virtual assistants or chatbots are an example of this. However, in more recent times we have reached the next level, Generative AI

Generative AI

Generative AI are systems and tools that can produce or generate new text, images, or other media (hence the name generative). For example, Chat GPT (by OPEN AI) was launched in November 2022 and is now a well-known AI tool of this class. It is designed for natural language understanding and generation, and can produce convincing and engaging human-like conversations based on your input. 

ChatGPT can be used to assist in understanding complex topics, as a writing assistant, and/or creating text for various purposes, including planning, and providing information.
