Generative Artificial Intelligence. Lessons for beginners


Generative AI Prompt Writing Introduction

What is AI?

When talking about Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the tech industry, we refer to intelligent machines that can do jobs that previously needed human intelligence.

Advances in machine learning have given AI a huge boost.

This tutorial focuses on Generative AI, like text-to-text and text-to-image.

What is Generative AI?

Generative AI is an AI that can create something like:

  • Text
  • Images
  • Audio
  • Videos
  • 3D models

Generative AIs analyze and use existing data and input from a user to generate these things.

Giving Generative AIs input is known as AI Prompt Writing or AI Prompt Engineering.

What is AI Prompt Writing?

AI Prompt Writing (or Engineering) is the process of creating input (usually text) instructing the Generative AI to generate the desired response.

In other words, prompting is the way we ask an AI to do something.

A prompt should be tailored to the type of response you want to receive and to the specifics of the Generative AI you use.

Different types of prompts:

  • Instructions
  • Questions
  • Data
  • Examples
