      I'll start to give a shit about this whole thing when it becomes able to do:

      1) Full-body arbitrary looking humans wearing arbitrary clothes in arbitrary poses
      2) Ability to "name" elements of the generation and then being able to call for them for the next image generation. i.e. real-time learning

      Until this shit becomes able to do that, it's just going to be a worthless gimmick.

        Similar thoughts here. I have Dalle2 access. And the novelty has almost completely worn off after 3 days.(so, 150 prompts, reaching my daily limit too quick, I need to manually keep count if I don't want to be caught off guard...)
        I managed to generate some cool looking creatures I wanted to see more of... but just had no way to retain them, unless I use in-painting, but I wanted entirely new scenes(like exploring their habitats etc).

            Smol brain take. Companies who are already making money from this won't be making much more; at most it means they save the wages of their art department. On the other hand, those who already couldn't afford an art department are bumped to a new power level where they can compete with big companies. It is a norm that big companies lack creative capital after their funder died (e.g. Disney, Jobs), thus their strategy changes to buying and consolidating competing IPs, improving old stuff and such maneuvers, instead of creating new stuff. Creative capital is what the small guy has, although entry barriers usually prevent him from using it. There's blood in the water and if you're not the one smelling it then it's your blood, retard.

            If you're an artist, start breathing this stuff 24/7 and figuring out how to get better outputs from it and ways to add value, because your job won't exist in 15 years. If you're a tech guy, either working for a company or doing indie stuff, your power will grow exponentially; start breathing this stuff so you get ahead of the people who didn't think it mattered. If you're some sort of executive or stakeholder in a big company, then I don't know what to tell you; figure something out before your time runs out I guess.

It's not like you can't use it just because you don't own the rights; the whole point of having copyright is to leverage it to get money in exchange, and it certainly will be cheaper to hire the AI artist for an hour than hiring 50 artists for a year.

              We already use incredible algorithms to deal with the production side of art. The creative part is the combination of production elements though. It's one thing to use soundgoodizer, it's another to use soundgoodizer on a side chain of the low end of a bass kick to merely duck a synth and vocal sample. You have to know WHY you are doing it or what YOU subjectively want from it.

              That subjectiveness is not really apparent to me. It seems to want whatever it's programmed to want.

                I prefer the term "slavemaster".
                Every computer user is a slavemaster to a degree... though mine seems to master me more nowadays. kek

                But right now that's slavemaster in the sense that a person that farms crops is a slavemaster of plants. It's kinda meaningless to most people in the general sense of the word. People would barely consider a pet a slave, for example, but that's really what they are. People also wouldn't really consider someone with no leverage in a loan situation a "slave" either... but that one's controversial (I actually would highly consider that slavery).

                I think the first true AI artist is one with no master and whom merely does it for it's own prerogative.

              I don't think that's obviously impossible, especially if the net happened upon a reasonably efficient way to store all that data. In fact, the example of the album art for an album whose name lends itself to a literal interpretation would seem to indicate that is what's happening. Why shouldn't "In the court of the crimson king" give a literal court scene with a king dressed in crimson sitting on his throne, at least some of the time?

                It's an album that I personally have heard of at some point and I recognize the album art too (although I certainly couldn't draw it from memory). Having the AI recognize it too is very impressive, and it doesn't mean that the exact pixels of the image are literally in its weights, just that it has extrapolated the relevant features (proof of this is that the 9 images are not exactly the same, and not exactly the same as the original album art).

If you scan the thread you'll see several people make dismissive claims of this sort. Frankly even if it were just taking images directly from Google images with each query and copy pasting them together in a sensible way that is still quite impressive.

                To be fair the Parti images are built up by humans each step of the way. It's obviously better than photoshop if this was true (though not really because the horse has a huge chunk of dark blue in its body which I'm assuming was something relating to its saddle.)
                Regarding the king crimson album cover Dalle-mini is 0.4 billion parameters and lower training data. I expect they'd be more exact but that's just a hypothesis based on that GPT-3 was able to recreate it a couple of years ago to demonstrate its ability (this was before Dalle-1). Something to note, King Crimson is more obscure than the Scream image posted here so you'd expect more variance. The scream pictures are pretty much exact though.

    and what does the parameter count mean? does 20B mean this thing has 20B images in its source library? or 20B connections between images? or what?

      Yes it's off the rails. 5 years ago I never would've thought you could do all this shit simply by increasing the parameter count. The parameters refers to the number of weights that can change in the learning process. It's not actively searching Google images each time you query it.

        People are not that complex ... well they are but that's precisely the point.
        The complex you make an AI, the more it will simply understand us better and become more like us.

        Like right now this AI reminds me of those people with weird brain irregularities that gives them incredible photo realism in their paintings. That's different from a gift by the way because the focus is realism, not meaningfulness or symbolism (I doubt this AI has been programmed to deal with philosophy because as soon as it does, it will enter the same frame of mind we are in and will likely become terrible at realism from that point on - creating either horrors or incredible surrealist art).
        Sometimes when a person is either properly autistic or brain damaged it can produce the superrealism we are seeing here.
        Trained artists can do it to, but you notice little details and artistic "cleanups" that help brighten the image and make it sparkle better, such as contrast in areas, etc that doesn't appear in OPs picture.
        That requires purely a subjective taste. I think that requires sophisticated philosophy and intrigue with the world.
        I've yet to see it. This image is very soulless.

        I work in this area. Over parametrization + more compute producing better performance on transformers has been surprising... But not really. Two theories:
        1. More parameters allow us to capture a larger search space in the optimization landscape. This allows us to learn various substructures that are important for different patterns more effectively. Check out the lottery ticket hypothesis.
        2. Transformers are extremely low bias learners. That is, there are basically no assumptions naked into the model architecture. This allows them to scale infinitely (technically log-linerly in the magnitude of the parameters).

      The resulting images are from a tug of war between Text AI(made to label images) and Image Generating AI. A prompt is written, the Image AI makes noisy garbage, then the text AI tries to see if it can tell what it is looking at, nope,tells Image AI to try changing some pixels. Repeat x million times. Eventually it starts to look like something the text AI can recognize.

      >it found someone standing in front of the opera house and found a kangaroo's head and just sort of shopped them together
      Nope. Despite the nay-sayers, it's legitimately generating never-before-seen kangaroo pictures. When you ask it for random stuff, it's not a lookup table, it's a probability distribution sampler, where the sampled probability distribution encodes information about things such as "kangaroo" and "opera house", and it's somewhat interpolating all opera house and kangaroo images to generate novel images. If you give it one kangaroo picture to train, it only knows that one. But give it enough kangaroo pictures from enough angles, it encodes the "essence" of a kangaroo into the probability distribution (denoising-diffusion model, conditioned guassians essentially) such that If you give it a query, it can generate the interpolation of many kangaroo pictures. And it can do this many times over.
      There's a reason it became a big deal; it's generally de novo. Give it an exact query it's seen before? It may generate something very similar to the training set images, but it's not a lookup table; it's a conditioned probability distribution sampler. The same query gives different results.

        Why don't you prove it by providing the most similar kangaroo pictures in the training data and showing how dissimilar to the output they are?

    Something I have to ask. Is this overfitting after certain parameters are added? It seems suspiciously good.

    Picrel is: A photo of an astronaut riding a horse in the forest. There is a river in front of them with water lilies.

    Left is 3B Right is 20B. I'm not sure if 20B is 6ish times better than left. So it seems its slowing? Anyone with a better eye want to comment?

      so again: A photo of an astronaut riding a horse in the forest. There is a river in front of them with water lilies.

      Left: 750m, middle is is 3B, right is 20B. The quality is improving. Though it seems there is less riding. And they still are in the water. Which is why I asked about overfitting.

            Yes, but neural networks somehow do it in a way that generalizes well to new data. (Why? We don’t know. It’s just an experimental observation.) This is very much unlike other models, which just memorize the training set and so generalize terribly.

              Maybe has to do with it's protocol for being satisfied with it's completion of the task?

              It makes improvements.
              Stops and says.. hmm I might be complete, this might be good enough, I may have satisfied the request.

              Then it says to itself, maybe I have not, but I am unsure of any improvements I might be able to make, i am blind to what's over the horizon of my potential to improve on this task I was asked to complete,

              So it maybe goes back to earlier parameters, and starts working from earlier chains, or does it cross off parameters it perfected as it goes; i.e. there is a request for a human face in the image, human faces have two eyes, I have satisfied this, if I go back and seek improvement I need not worry about the eyes;

              Though maybe if it's improvement has to move the human face.... And it already checked off not needing to consider eyes anymore.... Though no, if it needs to move the face, it needs to consider 2 eyes and their location;

              So it tampers with the image trying to seek improvement, and does it do this by qualifying it's first version giving it a test score rating, judging with notes of how and where it can improve?

              So it now has a working image to work from;

              That it is now referencing it's memory, looking back and forth at the requirements of prompt, and looking at its working image, and "imagining", probing toward an unseeable beyond the horizon of a potential better version of what it has already done

                Imagine any great work of art of history, the artist looking at the completed version and thinking (and then trying on a reproduction) 'how can I make this better'

                Often artists do this process before they start, by sketching and drafting, but it is not entirely uncommon for after an artist has been satisfied with their sketch and begin to enact it onto a full proper version, for them to still tinker with things in the full complete version that differ from the sketch

        the google pic does look like a bad photoshop which is why I asked. Over overparameterizationcan lead to the data becoming generic and leaving out other parts of the data less common.

      What? All they did was generate a bunch of images from similar-ish prompts ("spaceman", "spaceman riding horse", "spaceman riding horse in high def", "spaceman riding horse super resolution", "spaceman riding horse + colorful", etc etc) and picked the best examples which showcase some property of the models (best representation of the most complex prompt, most novel interpretation of an abstract prompt, etc.). The paper section 6.2 literally tells you what they do.
      DALLE-2/all the other generative model papers do the same thing; lots of prompts, lots of generated pictures, pick the coolest/best ones to demonstrate. It's about showcasing the limits of the generative model in the best light.

    Look, hear me out, because I've been tinkering around the both machine learning and the commercial graphical design. People there talk about IA's obstacles in creating art mostly from the side of the technical limitations of the modern computers or from the point of the precision of generated images. I want to talk about the limits inherent in the algorithm.
    >learning set limitation - what AI can recognise and therefore paint depends on the learning sets it was given. This means that the generic things like kangaroos, sunglasses and hoodies are easy, but non generic things like the trademarked characters require creation of the dedicated learning sets build specifically for them. If you want pictures of Spireman for your Spireman comic, you need somebody to draw enough Spireman pictures to create the learning set, so your AI can learn what Spireman is. That alone is a huge obstacle for somebody trying to replace human artists with AI.
    >consistency - can your AI draw me the exact same 'roo in the exact same hoodie but blue? Can the AI draw 100 panels of Spireman while keeping the costume consistent? The trouble with the current alghoritm is that every picture is essentially made from scratch without refferencing the other pictures.
    >multiple related images - relating to the previous point, the alghoritm has no concept of the previous pictures drawn. It couldn't draw the action sequence, because that would require it being able to related the each picture to the previous ones.
    >real time learning and fine tuning - the alghoritm as it stands has no ability to either learn new concepts (like learning that the generated character is named Joey d'Roux) or to make changes to once generated pics.
    >intelectual side of paiting - the alghoritm has no concept of the color theory, picture composition or perspective. Sure, the learning set not being butt ugly helps there, but the machine still lacks 90% of what actually is people expect from the designer.

      >the whole production process - this alghoritm churns out raster graphics. It's literaly a single layer of pixels, while everybody who even touched the graphic design and the digital art knows that the proper use of layers is a key to actually delivering work that can be fine tuned or changed later. Again, it's not about the quality of the picture itself, it's about the fact that the alghoritm itself just churns out raster pictures, the end product without crucial previous steps.
      All in all this thing works more like the stock picture and concept art generator and just focusing on the image recognition and efficiency won't change it.

      These. It's a cute technical trick but useless from a professional standpoint at least currently.

      In theory you can just give overly long autistic prompts with all the description and get it to create the images. Then feed that image back into it with the label.

        Yes, you can but trying to do this will put you tens of the working hours behind the actual human artist and still won't solve half of the problems I've mentioned.

          I think one big issue with the algorithm (and someone can correct me if I'm wrong) is it being overly familiarized with some data. I recently used GPT-J and GPT-3 to start conversations with people. And though GPT-J is "dumber" it discriminated less of what the person was saying.
          I can't pull it up because the Google guy deleted it but there was an Imagen image of "Kermit the frog in the desert" and it looked like a frog bin. This never happens on the dalle-mini version. Also on a related note I read google search is using transformer technology now. I'm not sure if that is true but google search has got extremely bad. It took me ages to find that deleted Kermit tweet whereas years before pulling up obscure data was easier.

            I'm not sure about the Google, because it has been months since I last used their search, but their image search is simply useless. Yandex is miles ahead of them even if it sometimes stumbles on getting stuf right. But yeah, the overfamiliarization and the limits of the learning sets are a huge obstacle that connot be easily cleared just by making the algorim more efficient or giving it more computing power for using more weights.

    Sorry if it's the wrong thread, but how can I run in local some AI?
    More specifically, I would like to run the "Fake you" lip sync model, and do the inference on my personal computer (I have a decent Nvidia GPU, don't care if I have to wait the night for the result to render).

      What if you give it the prompt of an original creation by Dalle-e mini?

      Stuff like that, and a self portrait of Dall-e mini?

        You could experiment yourself anon it's free. But anyway it's not sentient so wont get your instruction. Actually trying to force it to not draw the album cover just makes it weirder. Had to share this. Reminds me of Bateson saying schizophrenia is caused by a double bind. Two conflicting responses.

          Maybe don't say: make it original ignore the obvious;

          Say; the crimson king in his court.

          Also try: in the court of the crimson king (not the album cover)

          Or some version of that

            For the first one I get the band combined with tennis (lol). The second is just the same as before. When I said it's not sentient I meant that it has no model of itself to contrast against itself. So terms like "original" "be original" or "original by Dalle" wont change anything because it's really telling it to change its programming (rather than locate a separate piece of data) and it's not capable of doing so. The only thing that changes the image is expanding on the prompt or changing the prompt around. Which then summoned the tennis court and the band. It's basically a giant calculator.

            trying original art out a few times now produces random art. Top middle picture has an artist signature on it but can't make it out.
            Variations of top left appear each times I run it. It's always a girl with weird textured hair. It appears far too many times to be random.

          Make the search simple if you want it to work well. The Court of the Crimson King is simple because that combination of words nearly always refers to a well-known album

            I'm aware of that. The wording isn't my choice the topic of discussion was NN overfitting. And whether or not you can negate the album cover image through natural language instruction.

            PS. Anyone recognize the art style of the weird girl in these images. Basically its this weird hair texture, some have her hair completely covering up other people like a Junji Ito character. It's spooky.

              How long does Dall-E take to do each one?

              Does it just pop them into place, or does it do piece by piece area by area, and adjust little sections here or there?

                They are diffusion models so you can see see on the disco diffusion colab versions how its put together in real time but roughly it's done piece by piece so if you asked for a dog on a street a few more dogs might appear if you leave it long enough as the machine tries to predict the pattern. But roughly its built up overtime, sometimes it gets worse the longer it goes. The dalle-mini doesn't show the process. I can't speak for Dalle-2 but I suspect by internet reaction it isn't showing it either so it looks like magic for the normies and generates publicity.
                https://colab.research.google.com/github/alembics/disco-diffusion/blob/main/Disco_Diffusion.ipynb for Katherine Krawson's version. This one is actually pretty good for tis size though needs a google account and you can't be a complete brainlet.

    >Current models like Parti are trained on large, often noisy, image-text datasets that are known to contain biases regarding people of different backgrounds. This leads such models, including Parti, to produce stereotypical representations of, for example, people described as lawyers, flight attendants, homemakers, and so on, and to reflect Western biases for events such as weddings.

    fuck that. Are there any AI like parti that are realistic and have an open source code?

      >I'm scared
      You should be.
      In just pure perceptual terms, it's doing exactly what your own brain is doing but generally was unaware of doing prior to seeing something do it in static, somewhat-off form.
      Uncanny valley of your own underlying intellect being shown to you for the first time.
      It's unsettling.
      As someone with visual aura migraines, a lot of these distortions and effects just look and feel like how my brain is when it's having a bad think day.

      Maybe because it looks like we are closer to general purpose AI than anyone ever expected just a short while ago and we aren't really prepared for it?

      The only preparation is setting up your own funeral pyre. The rest is just getting over our denialism and coping mechanisms.
      Same as any other sort of death.
      Just this one's for the whole species.

        >how my brain is
        Just how it fills in blind spots in the vision when they get too large and things get funky, or my brain is fritzing right after waking. The noise gets high and starts fudging all my algos, though it tends to be more geometric and, of course, dynamic than these images.

        That's what a lot of the kinks in this stuff look like.

        Then you realize, your brain's doing that in every single aspect of your perception (and thought) all the time, and your non-blind spots are just really well-tuned versions of this.

        Only my most vivid dreams approach the fidelity of most of these Dalle2 images, and I generally lack the focus in sleep to be sure they're not just amalgamations of the 2B images or worse. I don't think my active memory/imagination is any better.

        Also picrel

    This ai unironically makes me want to kill myself. It's the final proof there is no God. Not evolution, not heliocentrism, not cognitive neuroscience, but this. He wouldn't allow reality to be able to be manipulated in such a way as to make the conscious mind redundant. Good job stem gays you finally gave real evidence.

      Intelligent designers begin to tinker with making the early stages of AI in their own image, this proves God did not make the universe.

      The ai is an extension of man's mind at this point. You have an unconcious and subconscious and uncontrolled by you dreaming mind. Your mind achieves things you can't. AI and computers for now are an extension of the human mind doing things the mind doesn't do
