Understanding the Hype around Generative AI

Talks on ChatGPT have been ad nauseam on the Internet. No doubt generative AI has been a big leap of progress pushing the technology from light-hearted bantering to writing code, and chatbots – predominantly ChatGPT – have opened ways to push the limits of possibilities.

But oftentimes, people tend to lose sight of the big picture in the noise. Like for example, no one, except those involved in the making of it, knows what generative AI really is, or remembers how the hype around it first started.
