Generative Artificial Intelligence, text-to-image, AI learning


Artificial Intelligence can emerge as a new generative force in educational technologies, particularly through Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI), making the production of various types of digital content faster and more accessible than ever. For the proper implementation of these technologies in the educational context, multidisciplinary and shared reflection is necessary. This article explores current GAI methods for image creation and proposes a study on the machine's current capabilities in interpreting and emulating human emotional phenomena. The emotional component extraction from visual artworks is chosen as a case study, and several possible interventions are identified.
