Getting Started

Generative AI, short for Generative Artificial Intelligence, is a category of artificial intelligence that focuses on creating new and original data or content. Generative AI models are trained to learn the patterns and structures present in their input training data, and they use this learned knowledge to generate new data that is similar to the training data. This generated data can take various forms, including text, images, video, music, and more. Generative AI has applications in creative content generation, data augmentation, and other tasks where the generation of novel and coherent data is required.
