Most overviews of artificial intelligence (AI) describe four major types of application: descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive. In my course last year I added two more: generative, and deontic AI. This post from Jackie Gerstein discusses generative AI "as part of (students') larger Artificial Intelligence elective as well as being part of the ISTE AI Explorations course I am taking" and offers  more detail, including a number of examples. Generative AI fits in well to several criteria, including "creating new, useful or imaginative solutions" and "communicate clearly and express themselves creatively".
