We’ve already seen demos of a “text-to-image” engine spread across the internet – an algorithm called “DALL E” that is able to accurately understand a series of words and digitally paint whatever comes up. asked.
To measure the quality of Imagen’s work, the Google team generated images from a selection of AIs and presented them to a group of people for review. Across the board, according to the report, people liked Imagen’s results the most.

It’s a little crazy to consider the implications of such advancements in AI. We are already seeing apps that can generate real music, based on deep learning algorithms. Now we see that AI creates images that can be easily used for logos, flyers, branding, and so on. The one thing we thought will always be beyond the confines of machines — art — doesn’t seem to be as exclusive to the human mind as we thought.
Presumably, researchers are considering some kind of framework or constraints to make text-to-image engines less useful for trolls. But until a solid solution is found, we’re pretty sure no researcher would want to throw their AI baby to the internet sharks.
