The Turing Lectures: What is generative AI?

Join the first chapter of the three-part Turing Lecture series: How AI broke the internet. Generative AI refers to a type of artificial intelligence that involves creating new and original data or content. Unlike traditional AI models that rely on large datasets and algorithms to classify or predict outcomes, generative AI models are designed to learn the underlying patterns and structure of the data and generate novel outputs that mimic human creativity.
