The breakthrough in AI picture synthesis was initially introduced in 2014, before “Stable Diffusion.”
Although artificial intelligence (AI) picture generators are nothing new, a London-based company is making waves online for introducing a text-to-image AI generator that might completely change the market. The “Stable Diffusion” tool, according to converging accounts, relies on open source image synthesis and machine learning to feed algorithms with old data and enable them to generate new input without any programming.
Stable Diffusion, a deep learning technology, would enable users to virtually produce imaginative graphics utilising two-word key phrases or more. Before “Stable Diffusion,” the technology’s fundamental premise was widely accepted. But now that the technology is being made available online as an open source tool, anyone can use it.
The gadget, which only made its debut two weeks ago, is quickly gaining popularity—even more so than its forerunners—with some analysts asserting that it “brings implications as big as the invention of the camera.” The breakthrough in AI image synthesis that preceded “Stable Diffusion” appeared in 2014.
The first text-to-image tool “DALL-E 2” was going to be released this year, according to the artificial intelligence research group OpenAI. The technology turns written text into a variety of visual information, such as realistic pictures and works of art with a sci-fi theme. Google and Facebook now Meta announced the debut of their own text-to-image generators not long after OpenAI revealed their model.
Stable Diffusion raises numerous ethical issues, much like any new technology that is available in open source. The tool is programmed not to produce any harmful content, such as propaganda, violent scenarios, or pornography, according to the original code. Since the source code is open, it would be possible to bypass these limitations.
