Text based AI tools are becoming common technological staples right up there with search. The new word that can out of the ChatGPT launch was the word “generative”. The generative in generative AI refers to new technology where the AI can take a small training set of data and synthetically create new data from which it can continue its training. So it can train faster on less data.
