DALL-E, the AI image generator, now available in beta
OpenAI’s DALL-E AI image generator can now be used by more people as it is now available as part of the beta. This will allow approximately one million people to try and generate images based on random texts while having the opportunity to market the creations. Here are the details.
DALL-E can now be used by more people
DALL-E, including the recently introduced DALL-E 2, will now be available to more people as OpenAI will begin inviting one million people on the waitlist to try it out. As a reminder, the AI-based tool was previously available to a few select people and there also came the DALL-E Mini tool, which allowed people to really try it out.
Thus, those who have access to the tool can now enter certain keywords and expressions so that it generates images, sometimes strange, sometimes intriguing. DALL-E 2 can also allow users to edit already created images or those that have been uploaded”using a natural language description.“It is also possible to create variations of any existing DALL-E image. And, there will be a My Collection section to store all creations using DALL-E.
DALL-E users will get 50 credits for the first month, which will go down to 15 credits per month. Users can also purchase additional credits (115 credit increments) for $15.
Now that the tool is widely available to more people, the privacy part becomes a priority, and OpenAI has ways to address this issue. He revealed that he won’t let people upload realistic faces and won’t let people create”resemblanceof famous people to keep people safe. OpenAI has also updated its filtering system and as a result people can’t”generate violent, adult or political content, among other categories.“
The company also aims to address the issue of racial bias and has a new technique that “generates images of people that more accurately reflect the diversity of the world’s population.“There is also human oversight involved so that the tool is not misused.
DALL-E is now open for commercial use primarily for reprint, sale and merchandising. Those looking for subsidized access can also apply. All we can hope for is that this tool will be used for fun and real usage scenarios and not for anything pejorative! More people will likely soon have access to DALL-E.
