Text-to-Image Goes Viral

A homebrew re-creation of OpenAI’s DALL·E model is the latest internet sensation. Craiyon has been generating around 50,000 user-prompted images daily, thanks to its ability to produce visual mashups like Darth Vader ice fishing and photorealistic Pokemon characters.

DALL·E 2’s Emergent Vocabulary

OpenAI’s text-to-image generator DALL·E 2 produces pictures with uncanny creativity on demand. Has it invented its own language as well? Ask DALL·E 2 to generate an image that includes text, and often its output will include seemingly random characters.

Tech Imitates Life, Life Imitates Art

The computational systems known as cellular automata reproduce patterns of pixels by iteratively applying simple rules based loosely on the behavior of biological cells. New work extends their utility from reproducing images to generating new ones.

Image Generation + Probabilities

If you want to both synthesize data and find the probability of any given example — say, generate images of manufacturing defects to train a defect detector and identify the highest-probability defects — you may use the architecture known as a normalizing flow.

More Realistic Pictures From Text

OpenAI’s DALL·E got an upgrade that takes in text descriptions and produces images in styles from hand-drawn to photorealistic. The new version is a rewrite from the ground up. It uses the earlier CLIP zero-shot image classifier to represent text descriptions.

Neural Nets + Rules = Truer Text

A new approach aims to cure text generators of their tendency to produce nonsense. AI21 Labs launched Jurassic-X, a natural language processing system that combines neural networks and rule-based programs.

From Sequences to Symbols

Given a sequence of numbers, neural networks have proven adept at discovering a mathematical expression that generates it. New work uses transformers to extend that success to a further class of expressions.

AI Designs Chemical Weapons

It’s surprisingly easy to turn a well-intended machine learning model to the dark side. In an experiment, Fabio Urbina and colleagues at Collaborations Pharmaceuticals, who had built a drug-discovery model to design useful compounds and avoid toxic ones, retrained it to generate poisons.
