AI can now also handle content

The topic of artificial intelligence became omnipresent in the media when the AI chatbot ChatGPT was released in November 2022. There are now a host of AI-based tools that enable text and image generation based on text commands. These fall within the category of generative AI.

This represents a form of AI technology that draws on data and information gathered online to independently generate text, images and/or multimedia content. This technology is based on a form of machine learning in which algorithms are trained using huge quantities of data in order to detect specific connections and apply them to unfamiliar data.
