Artificial intelligence / Generative AI

The simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think and learn like humans. The goal of AI is to create systems that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making and language translation. Generative AI is a class of artificial intelligence systems designed to autonomously produce novel and contextually relevant outputs, such as text, images, or other forms of content, based on learned patterns and data.
