One other month, one other flood of bizarre, great and cute photographs generated by a man-made intelligence. In April, OpenAI confirmed off its new picture-making neural community, DALL-E 2, which might produce exceptional high-res photographs of just about something it was requested to.
Now, just some weeks later, Google Mind has revealed its personal image-making AI, referred to as Imagen. And it performs even higher than DALL-E 2: it scores increased on a regular measure for score the standard of computer-generated photographs and the photographs it produced had been most well-liked by a gaggle of human judges.
However like OpenAI did with DALL-E, Google goes all in on cuteness. Each companies promote their instruments with a sequence of images stuffed with anthropomorphic animals doing lovely issues: a fuzzy panda dressed as a chef making dough, a corgi sitting in a home fabricated from sushi, a teddy bear swimming the 400m butterfly on the Olympics—and it goes on.
This cuteness hides a darker facet to those instruments, one which the general public doesn’t get to see as a result of it might reveal the ugly fact about how they’re created. Learn the total story—and see extra footage created by Imagen—right here.
