Inference in generative AI refers to the process where a trained generative model generates new data samples based on learned patterns and structures. This process involves the model taking input (which can be minimal or even none in some cases) and producing output that aligns with the distribution of the data it was trained on.

For example, in a generative AI model trained on images, inference would be the act of the model creating a new image that resembles the types of images it has seen during training. Similarly, in text-based models like GPT-3 or GPT-4, inference involves generating text that is coherent and contextually appropriate based on the input prompt and the vast amount of text data it was trained on. Inference is the practical application of a generative AI model's learned capabilities, showcasing its ability to create, predict, or simulate data that is new, yet familiar in structure and content to its training set.
