What is generative AI? 

Generative AI is a type of technology that can generate content based on prompts provided by humans. Currently, some of the the most commonly used AI tools include ChatGPT (text-based) and DALL-E 2 (image-based). Others are available, which produce slides, videos and computer code. Major companies such as Microsoft and Google are beginning to integrate AI tools into some of their products.  

Microsoft Bing Chat and Google Bard are further examples. 

This guide will help you find resources to understand these new tools and offer insights into how they may be used in education.
