About the event
Generative Artificial Intelligence (Generative AI) is a cutting-edge technology that fuels creativity by crafting original content. In this presentation, we introduce Generative AI's capabilities and potential. Generative AI learns from vast data sets to produce diverse content like text, images, and music. We explore its applications in creative writing, visual art, and music composition, showcasing its potential to spark innovation. While Generative AI offers exciting possibilities, ethical considerations are paramount with concerns around bias and the need for responsible oversight. Looking forward, we can expect exciting changes to the way work gets done as AI and humans collaborate.
