A GENTLE INTRODUCTION TO AI

An art revolution of transformative proportions is underway. AI-powered tools like DALL-E, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, Craiyon, and a slew of other new software names are empowering individuals to effortlessly produce top-tier art and visuals in a matter of seconds. Even more impressive is the fact that these tools can be operated using simple text descriptions, without the need for coding expertise or prior artistic experience. Yet, to understand and maximize the utility of these software offerings, a foundational comprehension of AI is important, especially in understanding the potential limits and drawbacks of AI-generated content.

Artificial intelligence, commonly abbreviated as “AI”, has gained significant traction in recent years. At its core, AI facilitates the creation of machines that can learn, problem-solve, and provide appropriate responses, including the ability to interact with humans and act independently. This is achieved...
