Artificial intelligence is one of the fastest-growing technologies in the world. It offers lots of exciting opportunities for information managers, though it also comes with some challenges and risks. Generative AI is one of the big AI developments making waves right now.
What is Generative AI?
Generative AI describes a category of capabilities within AI that create original content in a variety of formats including natural language, image, code, and more.
People typically interact with generative AI that has been built into chat applications.
Generative AI applications take in natural language input, and return appropriate responses in a variety of formats including natural language, image, code, and audio.
Chat GPT is one of the examples of a generative AI language model that acts in a conversational way.
Over the recent years a large range of other Generative AI tools became available to our users, including:
- Microsoft 365 Copilot: Which uses large language models to assist users with generating content within its portfolio of work apps including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Teams.
- Google Duet AI: A productivity tool that uses generative AI to help users complete tasks.
- Zoom IQ: A tool that uses AI to transcribe and translate meetings in real-time.
- Slack GPT: A tool that uses generative AI to help users write better messages.
- Chatbots like Bard and HuggingChat.
Fun Fact: All images used in this blog post were created in Microsoft Designer, utilising Generative AI.
