Generative AI

A Beginner's Guide from Lore

Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence that involves using algorithms to create new data that resembles training data. In this guide, we will provide an introduction to Generative AI, its history, tools & software, companies, examples, and applications across different industries.

Introduction

Generative AI has gained popularity in recent years, as it has been used in various applications such as art, music, design, and healthcare. It is also a topic of interest in the field of artificial intelligence, and its applications are expected to grow in the future.

If you're new to Generative AI, this guide will provide you with an introduction to its key concepts, tools, and applications. Additionally, we'll provide a brief history of Generative AI and explore the ethical considerations of using it.

What is Generative AI?

Generative AI refers to a type of AI that involves using algorithms to generate new data that resembles training data. This can be done in various ways, such as using neural networks, reinforcement learning, variational autoencoders, and generative adversarial networks (GANs).

Generative AI is different from other types of AI because it does not rely solely on training data, but rather uses algorithms to create new data that is similar to training data. This makes it useful in creating new, unique content, such as art, music, and design.
