Study Notes

Transformers and Attention

  • Transformers enabled models to track connections between words across pages, chapters, and books, rather than just individual sentences.
  • They also enabled analysis of code, proteins, chemicals, and DNA by tracking connections.

Large Language Models (LLMs)

  • LLMs have billions or trillions of parameters, enabling generative AI models to write engaging text, paint photorealistic images, and create entertaining sitcoms.
  • Innovations in multimodal AI enable content generation across multiple media types, including text, graphics, and video.

Multimodal AI and Generative Tools

  • Tools like Dall-E create images from text descriptions and generate text captions from images.
  • Breakthroughs in multimodal AI have opened up possibilities for readable text and photorealistic stylized graphics.

Limitations and Challenges

  • Early implementations of generative AI have had issues with accuracy and bias.
  • They are prone to hallucinations and providing weird answers.

Future Possibilities

  • Generative AI could fundamentally change enterprise technology and how businesses operate.
  • It could help write code, design new drugs, develop products, redesign business processes, and transform supply chains.

How Generative AI Works

  • Generative AI starts with a prompt, such as text, image, video, design, or musical notes.
  • AI algorithms return new content in response to the prompt, including essays, solutions to problems, or realistic fakes created from pictures or audio.

User Experience

  • Early versions of generative AI required submitting data via an API or complicated process.
  • Developers had to familiarize themselves with special tools and write applications using languages like Python.
  • New user interfaces are being developed to allow users to describe requests in plain language and customize results with feedback.

History of Generative AI

  • Generative AI was introduced in the 1960s in chatbots.
  • It wasn't until 2014, with the introduction of generative adversarial networks (GANs), that generative AI could create convincingly authentic images, videos, and audio.

Concerns and Opportunities

  • Generative AI has opened up opportunities for better movie dubbing and rich educational content.
  • It also raises concerns about deepfakes and harmful cybersecurity attacks on businesses.

Explore the basics of generative artificial intelligence technology, including its capabilities in producing text, imagery, audio, and synthetic data. Learn about the history of generative AI from its introduction in the 1960s to the latest advancements like user-friendly interfaces for content creation.
