Freetards... what the hell went wrong? I thought free AI models were the heckin futurino! Posted on April 14, 2023 by Anonymous Freetards... what the hell went wrong? I thought free AI models were the heckin futurino!
Midjourney is really easy to use
>proprietary companies leeching off the foundation that freechads built
>working for free
>Super high quality very cheap model that requires no setup at all and has robust community built in
>Hundreds of different open source models that require lots of configuration, custom set up, expensive hardware to run and even after that not as high quality as the paid option
Gee I wonder why midjourney has done better
And will continue to do better while StabilityAI goes bankrupt and Stable Diffusion flounders into the same of irrelevancy most freetard projects lie
i dont care how closed source it is. what I care is weather or not its SAAS
I dont want a saas AI I want a deploy at home ai. no one is going to discontinue my fucking daughteru LLM
Midjourney looks very boring though. Even with all the updates, you can still immediately tell when something is Midjourney. Stable Diffusion has enough customization that you can make something actually look original if you wanted to. Most people are lazy and use the same bland anime models though.

stable diffusion also have its own "sameface syndrome", it is recognizable from a mile away
more like yidjourney amirite
There are many reasons why people aren't attracted to open source AI:
-The vast majority of people are too dumb to run them locally
-The vast majority of people don't have the hardware required to run them locally
-The vast majority of people don't have the technical knowledge to run them locally
-The vast majority of people don't have any actual need for AIs beyond curiosity and the occasional quick use
-The vast majority of people don't know anything about AIs, even the fundamentals.
You only need one of those above conditions for someone not to use open source AI, so you've filtered over 99% of the entire world population.
That's also why AI regulation won't come in the form of hardware restrictions (you need far more VRAM than any single card can pack to run a "dangerous" model), but through private services limiting the offer and functionality of publicly accessible models, because among the people who use AIs regularly, the majority only do it through private service providers.
You forgot the part where to doing anything really interesting takes millions of dollars of hardware resources.
its the power consumption even if you ignore hardware.
I mean fully-loaded cost. Power, cooling, operations, datacenter rent, etc.
Hardware and resource usage (power, cooling, etc) is what will prevent widespread AI use among companies.
Those unemployed gays who claim each and every tech company will run its own huge AI model trained on their own codebase to replace all workers are deluded and live in their own schadenfreude fantasy, disregard them.
We're in the discovery phase of AIs, people are amazed and want to try everything with stars in their eyes.
It's just like when 3D accelerators became a thing, everyone had to make 3D UIs, 3D animations, 3D screensavers, 3D this, 3D that.
Now that we've stopped playing around, we're coming back to simple flat themes everywhere.
Someone just needs to leak the Midjourney v5 source code and we’re golden 🙂
>We just need to steal code
The absolute state of freetard morons.
Stable Diffusion only exploded because off the leaked NovelAi models.
Without the anime shit, it would have died an irreverent death after 2.x.
>but MUH "realistic" ai porn
>shilling this hard for closed-source corpos that already steal money from people
Stop working for free and get a real job, stupid janny freetard.
Name the last time eleutheromaniacs were right about something.
>Midjourney has 3 major iterations since mid last year, each receiving fanfare
>Stable Diffusion has 1 which is considered a disaster
Oh Emad you stupid moron
Midjourney doesn't have things like controlnet or a wide range of customizable options.
Doesn't Midjourney only work in Discord? You have to post the prompt in a public chatroom and it publicly tags your identity next to the outputs.
Create your own private server.
many such cases
Why does BOT have so much trouble understanding "you get what you pay for"?
can midjourney make braphogs? if not stablediffusion is far better.
