Unveiling the Potential: Navigating the Landscape of Generative AI for
Freelancers in Pakistan
Introduction: What is Generative AI
Generative AI refers to such artificial intelligence systems
that generate new content, such as images, text, or other types of data, even
music. The term "generative" comes from the idea that these AI models
generate new content rather than simply analyzing or classifying existing data.
Today we try to understand what Generative AI is and how freelancers working in
different fields can use it to their advantage in Pakistan.
Understanding Generative AI:
One of the key techniques used in generative AI is deep
learning, particularly models like Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) and Variational
Autoencoders (VAEs). GANs consist of a generator and a discriminator that
are trained together in a competitive manner. The generator tries to create
realistic data, while the discriminator's role is to distinguish between real
and generated data. Through this adversarial process, the generator improves
its ability to create content that matches ground realities.
Generative AI in the Global Context:
Across the globe, Generative AI is making waves. From
revolutionizing healthcare diagnostics to generating lifelike artwork, the
impact is tangible. The question arises—how does this global surge influence
the landscape in Pakistan? We take a look into different aspects of generative
AI, especially with reference to freelancing.
Current Landscape in Pakistan:
The generative AI wave has also influenced Pakistan and
local organizations are taking up projects that use generative AI.
