New depths to ai generated art.

Postby Flannel Jesus » Thu Aug 04, 2022 10:04 am

There's an artificial intelligence that you can access right now for not very much money, you can give it text prompts and it will spit out amazingly high quality pieces. It's called midjourney.

https://www.reddit.com/r/midjourney/com ... s_funeral/

It has been trained on a dataset of I don't know how many thousands of paintings, and it has its own style.

What's interesting is that it seems to have some sort of conceptual understanding of a lot of words, but it's concepts are clearly at least somewhat disconnected from how we humans conceptualise those things. A lot of the images it produces are amazing but they lack certain finishing touches - unfinished faces, bodies without heads, arms without hands. It can make a beautiful painting but it still needs a humans helping hand to take it to a place where it makes sense.

But a lot of people have a soft spot for the nonsense that it produces, it's interesting in its own right

Yes, that's another big competitor to midjourney. Dall-E 2. Unfortunately we can't get access to that one yet, like we can with midjourney
