Generative AI Glossary
  • Autoencoder: A type of neural network that learns a compressed representation of data, which can be used for generation and other tasks.
  • Backpropagation: A process used in neural networks to adjust the weights of the network based on the error between predicted and actual outputs.
  • BERT: Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers - a type of LLM developed by Google that is pre-trained on large amounts of text data.
  • BigGAN: A type of GAN developed by Google that is trained on large amounts of data to generate high-quality images.
  • Capsule Network: A type of neural network architecture that uses capsules to represent entities in data, and is able to handle variations in viewpoint and pose.
  • DeepDream: A technique developed by Google that uses neural networks to generate hallucinogenic images from existing images.
  • Dropout: A technique used in neural networks to prevent overfitting by randomly dropping out certain nodes during training.
  • Encoder: A component of a neural network that transforms input data into a compressed representation.
