Title: GauGAN2 Image Generation
Post by: LesPalenik on November 23, 2021, 04:54:28 am
NVIDIA can now generate images from a textual information - i.e. "A peaceful lake surrrounded by tall-trees in a foggy day" or "sunset at a rocky beach"

NVIDIA has announced the latest version of NVIDIA Research's AI painting demo, GauGAN2. The model is powered by deep learning and now features a text-to-image feature. Whereas the original version could only turn a rough sketch into a detailed image, GauGAN 2 can generate images from phrases like 'sunset at a beach,' which can then be further modified with adjectives like 'rocky beach,' or by changing 'sunset' to a different time of day or even modifying weather conditions. GauGAN is powered by generative adversarial networks (GAN)

No, that's not art. That's one or more computer geeks gone bad.

As for generating images, anyone (any actual photographers and those using imaging software) remember Kai Krause's Bryce?

Very likely, that new program is a part of Nvidia effort to get into the Metaverse world. Just question of time, when they will expand from still images to moving scenes. Not so much art, but useful for games, simulations and backgrounds for all kinds of youtube videos.

come to think of it that image looks like a test for exposure......
