What is ChatGPT? What is a generative AI model?


Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence technology that uses computer algorithms to produce content, including text, images, computer code, audio, and graphics, in response to user prompts. Since OpenAI released ChatGPT, its AI-powered chatbot with a user-friendly interface, to the public, a variety of companies have unveiled other applications, including Google Bard, Microsoft Bing, DALL-E, and many more.

The landscape of generative AI technology is changing rapidly, and many new companies and applications are on the horizon. This ability to understand and generate original, human-like dialogue and content is what separates generative AI from traditional search engines like Google, and why it stands to transform how we learn, work, and carry out everyday tasks in the 21st century.
