What is Generative AI?
If you have not heard about ChatGPT by now, you must be an alien from another planet. Some of the hottest technology trends such as ChatGPT have their roots in a technology known as Generative Artificial Intelligence or Generative AI. In the simplest terms, Generative AI usually refers to a trained Neural Network which can generate never seen before content based on some hints. In the case of ChatGPT, the hints refer to a question that the user asks. A GPT-3.5/4 model then generates tokens using these hints, and a well trained model can generate the correct tokens to correctly answer the user’s question. Stable Diffusion and DALL-E work the same way, a text hint is used to generate never seen before image content. With the scale of neural networks that can be trained now (GPT-3 had 175 Billion parameters in its neural network) with distributed GPUs (or hardware accelerators such as those from Sambanova Systems), the Generative AI models have become sophisticated …
