Q1) What is Generative Artificial Intelligence?

Generative AI refers to deep-learning models that can take raw data and “learn” to generate statistically probable outputs when prompted. Generative AI is powered by foundation models (large AI models) that can multi-task and perform out-of-the-box tasks, including summarization, Q&A, classification, and more.
