About the Course

This 1-hour long project-based course is for anyone interested in exploring the capabilities of cutting-edge AI technology. In it you will learn how to effectively communicate with OpenAI's ChatGPT and DALL-E models, practice creative writing, and produce visually stunning images. To achieve this, we will work with ChatGPT and Dall-e, co-writing a sci-fi inspired story, and generating images to bring the story to life through a series of tasks including setting up an OpenAI account, interacting with ChatGPT, practicing effective AI communication. This project is unique because it offers hands-on experience co-creating with advanced AI models, allowing you to explore the limits of such a technology and develop your creative writing skills. In order to be successful with it, you will only need basic computer skills and an interest in science fiction and creative writing. This project will provide you with step-by-step guidance through instructor-led videos. Unlike some other projects on Coursera, this experience will not utilize a virtual machine. Instead, learners will complete the project on their own browser or device. *June 2023 Update*: Dall-e 2 no longer provides free introductory credits. Learners are welcome to pay for credits for Dall-e or use a free alternative such as Bing Image Creator, Stable Diffusion, or Craiyon. Some features may be different, but the prompting methodology is still valid....

Lo dejo a mitad porque no lo he podido testear. No se puede completar solo con el pago de la suscripción porque DALL-E ahora es de pago y tienes que añadir al menos 15$ de créditos y yo escogí el curso por estar dentro de Coursera Plus.

I recently had the opportunity to enroll in the ChatGPT DALL-E-2 course offered on Coursera, and I found it to be an intriguing and innovative experience. The course delves into the fascinating realm of generative AI models, focusing on ChatGPT and DALL-E-2, both of which are cutting-edge technologies developed by OpenAI.

The course content is well-structured and designed to cater to both beginners and individuals with some prior knowledge of AI and machine learning. The instructors begin by providing a comprehensive overview of the fundamental concepts behind generative models and their applications. They gradually introduce learners to the specifics of ChatGPT and DALL-E-2, explaining their architectures, training methodologies, and real-world use cases. This step-by-step approach ensures that even those without a strong technical background can grasp the core concepts.

One of the standout features of the course is its hands-on approach. Learners have the opportunity to work with these AI models through practical assignments and projects. The interactive assignments help solidify the theoretical knowledge gained from the lectures and readings. These assignments involve tasks such as fine-tuning the models for specific creative outputs, experimenting with prompts, and even integrating the models into simple applications. This practical component greatly enhances the learning experience, as it allows students to witness the models' capabilities firsthand.

The instructors strike a good balance between theoretical discussions and practical implementation. However, there were a few instances where the pace of the course felt slightly rushed, particularly when delving into advanced topics. More in-depth explanations and examples in these sections would have been beneficial for a deeper understanding.

Furthermore, while the course content is quite comprehensive, the field of generative AI is rapidly evolving. As a result, the course might benefit from periodic updates to keep up with the latest advancements and trends.

The quality of the instructors and their presentation style is commendable. They are clearly knowledgeable about the subject matter and are skilled at conveying complex concepts in an accessible manner. The video lectures are well-produced and accompanied by supplementary materials, such as slides and readings, that provide additional context and resources.

In conclusion, the ChatGPT DALL-E-2 course on Coursera is an excellent choice for anyone interested in exploring the realm of generative AI models. It provides a solid foundation in both theory and practical application, making it suitable for a wide range of learners. While there is room for a bit more depth in certain areas and the course content may need periodic updates, the course as a whole offers valuable insights into the capabilities and potential of these cutting-edge AI technologies.

I had an amazing experience taking the Coursera guided project, "ChatGPT for Beginners: SciFi Writing with Dall-e." The course was well structured and provided a comprehensive introduction to the world of science fiction writing with the help of Dall-e, the innovative AI-powered image generator.

The project's hands-on approach enabled me to practice what I learned in real-time. I particularly enjoyed working with Dall-e to create sci-fi stories and visualizations. The course's interactive nature made it fun and engaging, and the instructions were easy to follow, even for a beginner like me.

This is a very interesting course. although it doesnt sound like it n either title or beginning. But it encourages us to practice and the capstone which sounded less relevant is actually extremely useful to do as it opens a whole world of possibilities. If you practice the lessons taught it becomes even better. IN other words if you put in another 5 to 6 hours into it it will be really worth it.

Me parece que este proyecto guiado es una muy buena introduccion al uso de IA para crear historias, yo no use Dall-e, pero hay otras herramientas gratis que se pueden usar. Lo que si creo que ayudaria es hacer que las personas tengan que entregar un trabajo final de manera obligatoria y que sea peer reviewed de acuerdo a criterios establecidos por el profesor. Esta es mi primera vez tomando un proyecto asi que quizas eso no aplica aqui. El sistema de peer review no es perfecto, pero para aquellos que se esfuerzan en aprender puede ayudarlos a mejorar. Muchas gracias

Very interesting project especially if your new to the world of AI tools.

The only issue is not with the instructor or the course, but the fact that to the tools you're taught to use are not always available. There are workarounds, but you have to find them yourself.

Great introductory course!
