Only a few weeks ago, the world of art was “shaken” by the power of OpenAI’s DALL E 2 to use Internet terminology. It can convert written phrases and sentences into horribly accurate AI-generated images. And now it looks like there is competition, thanks to a lesser-known tech company called Google.
Google has just announced its own text-to-image generator titled “Imagen” (John Lennon is proud of it), which is probably even more impressive than the DALL E2. One thing for sure is that the AI image generator remains.Because who needs to Download Photoshop When can Google create their favorite images?
Google calls Imagen (Opens in a new tab) As with “text-to-image diffusion model with unprecedented photorealism and a deep level of language understanding.” DALL ・ E2The best way to describe the tool is simply to display some images – and the text prompt that generated them:

Like OpenAI, Google has decided not to open the technology to the public for now. “The potential risk of misuse raises concerns about responsible open sourcing of code and demos,” Google says. “We have decided not to release code or public demos at this time. For future work, we will consider a responsible externalization framework that balances the value of external audits with the risk of unlimited open access. ”
But just like when DALL E 2 came out last month, Imagen is causing both awe and anxiety online. There’s one scary deepfake, but the ability to create images from scratch is another level of AI.
There is a new competitor for DALL-E: Google’s Imagen. I can’t access Imagen, but there are some sample images. Let’s compare them side by side. (Imagen on the left, DALL-E on the right) 1. “Blue jay standing in a large basket of rainbow macaroons”. pic.twitter.com/7qKzI1wW3bMay 25, 2022
Does anyone else feel deep horror from DALL-E or Imagen type software? Is there a reasonable expectation that the power of the underlying technology will continue to be directed towards “neat little image generation”? https://t.co/qb0LBYTQpRMay 26, 2022
“I’m not going to lie. I didn’t expect one of the first human jobs to completely replace artificial intelligence to be an” illustrator, “but I’m here,” one user said. Another user tweeted when he said, “There has always been an artist to replace AI, but unfortunately that day has come.”
The tools are impressive, but the results are fairly random.But like most Horrible deepfakeThe scary thing is the possibility of misinformation – the creation of AI content obviously goes nowhere and the results are getting more and more impressive.
