papal fallus
definitely a power electronics project
(note this is not really a fallus and it is growing out of the arm, so hopefully this will not be deemed NSFW, it's just a bit kinky)

recent developments since the release of Stable Diffusion

people have discovered the Stable Diffusion img2img script: "make variations of input image"

here's a blog post showing how someone used img2img to transform their untrained ham-fisted ms paint image into sci-fi dystopia

there is also diffuse the rest

draw a crappy ms paint style picture, supply a prompt and it'll generate improved versions

the image below shows my badly drawn penguin on the left and on the right we have the AI version...


prompt: distended penguin musician


Stable Diffusion Animation

given a start prompt and an end prompt the program will try and interpolate between the two - it's early days, the resulting animations seem a bit clumsy

plus GIMP, Photoshop, and Blender plugins under development

AI wins state fair art contest, annoys humans

A synthetic media artist named Jason Allen entered AI-generated artwork into the Colorado State Fair fine arts competition and announced last week that he won first place in the Digital Arts/Digitally Manipulated Photography category

he used Midjourney to generate the image which won the category - judges were reportedly unaware that the piece was generated by AI

another prompt engineering resource: an implemation of CLIP retrieval

Clip retrieval works by converting the text query to a CLIP embedding , then using that embedding to query a knn index of clip image embeddings

or in another words, search for what you're looking to generate, and see what image-text pairings the AI was trained on ( this quizzes the LAION dataset which was used when training stable diffusion )

The current test SD implementations on MidJourney are the best tool available right now. Kicks the shit out of normal SD and Dall-E.
