About Generative AI

The latest advances in Generative AI (GenAI) have been making headlines recently. Generative AI is the generic term for a number of tools that have been trained, using a huge amount of already-existing data, to ‘create’ new, original content. The most widely-known applications of Generative AI use text prompts from users to generate this content. These include:

  • Large Language Models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT, Claude, and Google Bard. 
  • Image, video and waveform generators such as DALL-E and Stable Diffusion.

It should be noted that Generative AI and the use of AI productivity tools are evolving rapidly.  The guidance on these support pages will evolve accordingly.
