Generative AI

A introduction to generative AI

AI platforms

There has been an explosion of AI platforms that can shape how we research, create, write, and manage our work. Below are a range of tools that members of the library have experimented with and/or are fairly popular at the time of publishing this guide. It is by no means comprehensive and some of these tools may prove to be outdated or inferior to new developments before long. This wide range of tools demonstrates that the current landscape of generative AI tool creation is constantly changing.

Some developers are monetizing their platforms and have created tiered access to their tools. Platforms with free and paid versions may produce different outcomes because of how the tool operates under a user's subscription level. Please explore and experiment with the tools below to gain a better grasp of how they may assist your workflows and to recognize their limitations and dangers.
