Precision-Guided Image Generation: Better text-to-image results with latent diffusion

Typical text-to-image generators can generate pictures of a cat, but not your cat. That’s because it’s hard to describe in a text prompt precisely all the things that distinguish your pet from other members of the same species.

Novel Views of 3D Scenes — Pronto: Using NeRF Algorithms to Quickly Generate New 3D Views

Given a number of images of the same scene, a neural network can synthesize images from novel vantage points, but it can take hours to train. A new approach cuts training time to a few minutes.
