Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been at the top of technology-conversations during 2023. AI suggests many opportunities for innovation as it is worked into applications that make use of large datasets. Patterns learned by AI can result in better human-computer experiences, diagnosis, content creation, pattern predictions and improved workflow. As a tech, AI is such a pervasive game-changer that its emergence is leading to rethinking of laws, industry norms as the court of public opinion raises their concerns. A challenge with AI is that understanding of what it is and its “insider language” is not widely understood. In this series we will cover AI language from A to Z.
In Part III we cover Dall-E to F.
- Dall-E. Dall-E and DALL-E2 is OpenAI's AI-powered image generator. Users submit a text prompt, and the AI tool generates a corresponding image.
- Deepfake. A deepfake is a convincing AI-generated image, audio or video hoax. A deepfake can be entirely original content that shows someone doing or saying something they didn't do or say. They can also depict fake news events. A deepfake of the Pentagon exploding went viral in May 2023 and had a tangible effect on the stock market.
- Deep learning. Deep learning is a type of machine learning that imitates the way humans gain certain types of knowledge.
- Embodied agents. Embodied agents, also referred to as embodied AI, are AI agents with a physical body that perform specific tasks in the physical environment.
- Emergence. Emergence describes capabilities that arise in AI systems unpredictably as they become more complex. A system's emergent properties are not observable in its individual parts.
- EU AI Act. The EU AI Act is a regulatory framework for responsible AI deployment in a way that doesn't conflict with data privacy rights.
- Expert system. Expert systems are AI systems used to simulate the judgment or behavior of a human expert.
- Explainable AI (XAI). AI systems that can explain their rationale, workings, and decision-making process to human users to improve transparency.
- Firefly. Adobe’s generative AI that is used to create royalty free images based on prompts.
- Fréchet inception distance (FID). FID is a metric for evaluating the quality of images created by generative AI.
