Moving on, Dr Danny briefed the audience regarding the image generation tools and performed some live demonstrations. He also reminded participants about the limitations of such tools such as AI hallucinations, which consisted of fake references or even citing from a non-existent case.  Dr Danny also stated that different prompts will generate different responses and therefore, it is important to use a clear and precise prompt.
