This AI makes pictures and montages of your ideas!

The OpenAI company, which specializes in artificial intelligence, has just developed a neural network that can generate photorealistic images. A simple sentence of text is enough to create almost any montage imaginable.

Artificial intelligence aims to mimic the functioning of the human brain, or at least its logic when it comes to making decisions. Jean-Claude Heudin, director of the research laboratory of the IIM (Internet and Multimedia Institute), explains the origin of this research.

OpenAI has just released a second version of its artificial intelligence dedicated to generating images. baptized DALL-E 2 (pronounced the painter Dalí), she is able to convert a simple text sentence into a photo-realistic image. The first version was content with a drawing on a plain background. This new AI creates much more complex compositions.

OpenAI is a direct competitor of Deep Mind from Google. This company dedicated to AI was founded by, among others, Elon Musk and investments received from Microsoft† His DALL-E 2 resembles the GauGAN (pronounced the painter Gauguin…) from Nvidia, being able to first convert a sketch into a photorealistic landscape and then do the same from a text sentence

AI can also create variants of an existing image

However, DALL-E 2 is much more complex than the competition because it is not satisfied with landscapes. The AI ​​can create an image that combines several common elements, such as ” a teddy bear skateboarding in Times Square “. The system is based on CLIP, a neural network from OpenAI trained on a large number of images with description. This AI is designed to analyze an image and come up with a description, but here it performs the opposite operation. A second step then decodes the result of the first to create a coherent image.

This two-stage system also offers other possibilities. The AI ​​can take an existing image and replace an element, or create a variation inspired by the original by adjusting the angle, pose and aspect of the subject. However, to prevent abuse, the AI ​​cannot generate photo-realistic images of human faces and the company has limited its ability to produce images with adult or violent content.
