The news: Nvidia is entering the text-to-image free-for-all with its eDiff-I artificial intelligence generator in an emerging market for Big Tech conglomerates, per VentureBeat.
Cambrian explosion of AI art generators: One of the biggest tech stories of 2022 is how generative AI has quickly evolved from a fringe application into advanced image generation thanks to the likes of OpenAI’s DALL-E 2, Google’s Imagen, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion.
How it works: These tools use a vast collection of data image supersets to generate AI-created images, graphics, photos, and even short videos based on a string of text descriptions.
AI-generated art has taken various industries by storm, but the caveat is that this is very nascent technology that could be a legal and ethical minefield.
Nvidia’s competitive advantage: Most competing AI art generators such as DALL-E 2 and Imagen use only a single encoder such as CLIP or T5. eDiff-I’s architecture uses both encoders in the same model.
Our take: Nvidia’s entry into the generative AI art segment qualifies it as a quickly emerging technology with real-world implications.
