Where is generative AI used?

One common application of generative AI is machine learning, which can be used to generate new images, videos, or text based on training data.

For example, a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) might be used to generate realistic-looking images of faces by learning from a dataset of real photos.

Other applications of generative AI include creating new molecules for use in medicine or developing more efficient algorithms for solving optimization problems.
