Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT, Bing Chat and Google Bard are the most important innovation in computing since the World Wide Web. Already the fastest growing app in history, ChatGPT has now become something hundreds of millions use every day - yet few have mastered the art of ‘sweet-talking’ these new 'AI Chatbots' into providing detailed and accurate responses to ‘prompts’. Now that Microsoft has announced 'Windows Copilot' - ChatGPT-like functionality within Windows 11, coming in November 2023 - it's vital for every computer user to have an understanding of how AI chatbots work - and how best to put them to work.

Getting Started with Generative AI takes you on a journey through the ‘big three’ AI chatbots - OpenAI's ChatGPT, Microsoft's Bing Chat and Google's Bard - demystifying their operation, and offering a wealth of ‘tools for thinking’ about how to make these new tools work. Rather than a do-this, do-that text - where you ape everything but learn nothing - Getting Started with Generative AI helps you into understanding, engaging your mind and your imagination as your learn to get comfortable with this next new age of computing.
