“The ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term is frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, discover meaning, generalize, or learn from past experience.” B.J. Copeland, 1998
Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI)
Software that generates text, computer code, audio, images and videos in response to text input. The release of ChatGPT (which uses GPT-3.5) by Open AI on November 30, 2022, captured one million users within one week, surpassing any other software. This event drew attention to other existing generative AI technologies and fuelled rapid growth in the field. Even more powerful GPT-4 was released on March 14, 2023, which is available via ChatGPT Plus and some functionality via Bing Chat.
Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)
Future of AI which aims to include the cognitive abilities and general intelligence of a human being, including the ability to reason, learn, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, adapt to variety of situations, be creative and communicate effectively in natural language.

There are lots of options available, here are just some places to help you get started.
Please note, TAFE NSW does not recommend specific products for use.
Furthermore, any content you create, which is your intellectual property that you put through these tools for grammar check or rewriting in a different style, will be used in training the model. Consequently, it may be included in the content generated for others without giving credit to your work.
ChatGPT allows you to turn off the chat history so that Open AI will not be able to use your data in training its model. However, even with the history option turned off, it will retain the data for 30 days only for abuse monitoring. After 30 days it will be permanently deleted.
Grammarly has been incorporating AI in their products for about a decade. However in April 2023, they released a new product called GrammarlyGo, which is built on GPT-3 and generates new content based on user prompts. Therefore, if an assessment requirement does not specify the use of generative AI, using content created by GrammarlyGo would be unacceptable. This is different from using it to correct your spelling or grammar.
TAFE NSW offers Copilot only through the Edge browser application. This means that you won't have access to Copilot when you complete assessments while logged in to your student account. Students might have access to Copilot on their personal devices but it should be used responsibly and only when permitted
