If you’ve been perusing the internet lately, you’ve probably come across generative artificial intelligence (AI). Generative AI technology can “create” artwork, blogs, and other content by drawing from data it ingests from interactions with real users. From viral “magic avatars” on social media to a tangled mess of copyright violations, generative AI has become a polarizing subject. Some love the technology while others criticize it for stealing original work from actual artists.
Venture capitalists fall on the enthusiastic side. In late 2022, the buzz around generative AI started to reach a fever pitch in the VC world. And big tech has been paying attention as well. Since 2019, Microsoft has invested at least $3 billion in OpenAI to help the small tech firm create its ultra-powerful AI chatbot ChatGPT.
In this episode of Angel Insider, Vin Narayanan and Allison Brickell discuss what’s going on with generative AI now and how investors can stay on top of opportunities in the space — without getting swept up in all the hype.
