What’s GenAI?

Generative AI (GenAI) is a technology that uses deep-learning models that enable generating high quality content like text, images, and more. Deep learning models use machine learning methods involving neural networks with multiple layers. The recent popularity of GenAI stems from the development of large language models (LLMs) that include billions of parameters and multimodal AI capable of generating various content.

What are GenAI tools, and how do they work?

GenAI tools are software applications or systems that use machine learning techniques to process data and create responses based on prompts from users. GenAI tools can be divided into a few groups based on their input and output type. Depending on their functionality, there are many types of GenAI tools, but we will focus on the following ones:

Text-to-text tools generate text responses to text prompts. Such applications are often called chatbots as they generate output in a chat-like environment through a conversation. These are, for example, ChatGPT and Bard.

Text-to-speech tools generate spoken audio based on the provided text. They are used as readers in the accessibility field or voices in marketing uses. These are, for example, PlayHT and Natural Readers.

Text-to-image tools generate pictures based on the described requirements. They are used to quickly produce content for various uses, including marketing. These are, for example, DALL-E and Midjourney.

Text-to-video tools generate video content based on the user’s prompt. They are used to quickly produce video content for different purposes, like advertising. These are, for example, Synthesia and Descript.

GenAI tools also include more types, such as speech-to-text, text-to-audio, image-to-text, image-to-image, image-to-video, and video-to-video applications, etc.

How can one benefit from using these tools?

The popularity of GenAI tools is on the rise, and there’s no doubt it can bring about many benefits. Thanks to AI’s ability to process big chunks of data quickly, it can be used for analysis and drawing conclusions based on the provided information. Some tools can be used to automate repetitive tasks by, for example, creating code snippets for developers. GenAI can also be used for generating promotional content, like images and texts, that usually take a lot of time to prepare. It gives the company a competitive edge, as employing AI tools can contribute to producing new product designs, marketing plans, financial analysis and many more.

Generative AI tools can be used in many fields, such as coding, content creation, image and video generating, financial and data analysis, marketing and sales, etc.
