A brief history of diffusion, the tech at the heart of modern image-generating AI

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

Text-to-image AI exploded this year as technical advances greatly enhanced the fidelity of art that AI systems could create. Controversial as systems like Stable Diffusion and OpenAI’s DALL-E 2 are, platforms including DeviantArt and Canva have adopted them to power creative tools, personalize branding and even ideate new products.

But the tech at the heart of these systems is capable of far more than generating art. Called diffusion, it’s being used by some intrepid research groups to produce music, synthesize DNA sequences and even discover new drugs.

So what is diffusion, exactly, and why is it such a massive leap over the previous state of the art? As the year winds down, it’s worth taking a look at diffusion’s origins and how it advanced over time to become the influential force that it is today. Diffusion’s story isn’t over — refinements on the techniques arrive with each passing month — but the last year or two especially brought remarkable progress.

How an AI Stole $35 Million

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, media & arts, robotics/AI

Artificial Intelligence has seen many advances recently, with new technologies like deepfakes, deepvoice, and GPT3 completely changing how we see the world. These new technologies bring forth many obvious benefits for in workflow and entertainment, but when technology like this exists, there are those who will try and use it for evil. Today we will be taking a look at how AI is giving hackers and cyber criminals more ways to pull off heists focusing on the story of a $35 million dollar hack that was pulled off using artificial intelligence and deep voice software.

Riffusion’s AI generates music from text using visual sonograms

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

On Thursday, a pair of tech hobbyists released Riffusion, an AI model that generates music from text prompts by creating a visual representation of sound and converting it to audio for playback. It uses a fine-tuned version of the Stable Diffusion 1.5 image synthesis model, applying visual latent diffusion to sound processing in a novel way.

Since a sonogram is a type of picture, Stable Diffusion can process it. Forsgren and Martiros trained a custom Stable Diffusion model with example sonograms linked to descriptions of the sounds or musical genres they represented. With that knowledge, Riffusion can generate new music on the fly based on text prompts that describe the type of music or sound you want to hear, such as “jazz,” “rock,” or even typing on a keyboard.

The viral AI avatar app Lensa undressed me—without my consent

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

My avatars were cartoonishly pornified, while my male colleagues got to be astronauts, explorers, and inventors.

When I tried the new viral AI avatar app Lensa, I was hoping to get results similar to some of my colleagues at MIT Technology Review. The digital retouching app was first launched in 2018 but has recently become wildly popular thanks to the addition of Magic Avatars, an AI-powered feature which generates digital portraits of people based on their selfies.

But while Lensa generated realistic yet flattering avatars for them—think astronauts, fierce warriors, and cool cover photos for electronic music albums— I got tons of nudes.
