Terminology Check

What is generative AI?

Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that can create new content and ideas, including conversations, stories, images, videos, and music. It is powered by large models that are pre-trained on vast amounts of data and commonly referred to as foundation models (FMs).

What is a Large Language Model or LLM?

A Large Language Model or LLM is a term often used to describe a generative AI model that is capable of generating text or natural language. These models can be used to power chatbots and to perform a wide range of language processing, such as summarization, sentiment analysis, or translation.

What is prompt engineering?

A prompt is the text we pass to a generative model to instruct it on the task we want it to perform. As many generative models are ‘non-deterministic’ (generate different outputs for the same input), we often need to carefully craft this text to increase our chances of getting a useful output. This is the start of prompt engineering, which then extends to methods for inserting our own data into the prompt and much more. But at its core, prompt engineering is just working with text.
