Introduction to Generative AI

In the past year, Generative AI has gained popularity and become a buzzword not only among tech enthusiasts but also in everyday conversations. It is fascinating to see how it has evolved, particularly with tools like ChatGPT, which can chat, write, and even create art. This trend is not only interesting for the tech crowd, but it's also gaining momentum with businesses, educators, and creatives. The way generative AI is blending into our daily lives is fascinating. It's like having a bit of science fiction become a reality. With each new development, it's opening up a world of possibilities that seemed like a distant dream just a few years ago.

What are 'GPTs'?

And just when you may have thought generative AI couldn't surprise us further, along came the latest update in November 2023 — the introduction of GPTs in ChatGPT. (

This exciting development lets us customize our own ChatGPT versions. No expertise is needed — just plain English! Whether it's a language-learning assistant or a creative muse for brainstorming, GPTs make it a reality. It's a significant advancement, offering a more personalized AI experience that resonates with individual needs. The potential here is enormous, not just for enhancing how we use ChatGPT but also for sharing these unique, tailored versions with others.
