Introduction to AI (Artificial Intelligence)

Introducing students to what AI is and how it helps people in their jobs, including creative jobs.

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is a fascinating field of technology that allows machines to do things that normally require human intelligence. This includes tasks like understanding language, recognizing patterns, solving problems, and learning from experience.

AI is like a super-smart robot that can think and learn. It's created by computer scientists who program computers with 'intelligence'. This doesn't mean that AI is alive or has feelings, but it can understand and learn things, which makes it seem smart.

AI is used in many different areas, from helping doctors diagnose diseases to making video games more fun. It can even help cars drive themselves! But did you know AI can also be used in the world of art and storytelling?

In the world of creative arts, AI can do some pretty amazing things. For example, it can help artists come up with new ideas or create art in different styles. It can also help writers by suggesting new story ideas or helping to develop characters.

One exciting area where AI is being used is in the creation of graphic novels. A graphic novel is a type of book that tells a story through a combination of words and pictures, similar to a comic book. AI can help artists and writers come up with new characters, plot ideas, and even help design the pages of the graphic novel.

For instance, an AI tool could help an artist come up with a new character for their story. The artist could tell the AI what they want the character to be like, and the AI could come up with a design. Or a writer could use AI to help come up with a plot for their story. They could tell the AI what kind of story they want to write, and the AI could suggest different plot ideas.

So, as you can see, AI is a powerful tool that can help us in many different ways. And as we learn more about it, who knows what other amazing things we'll be able to do with AI in the future!
