Dall-E 2 Creates Art To Order

Dall-E 2 from OpenAI is an artificial intelligence software suite that accepts your short text description, and then creates images to your specifications. The AI is trained by looking at many millions of images from across the Internet.

Here are some samples:

Firstly, Dall-E 2 is a private service, offering access based off a long waitlist. Dall-E mini, on the other hand, is free to use for everyone. This does mean Dall-E mini can often be unavailable with too much traffic and slower load times.

The mini equivalent struggles to match the same kind of quality as the original as well. Prompts can often come out blurry or of low quality. Dall-E 2 on the other hand is, for the most part, accurate and high-quality.

The other noticeable feature you’ll see in Dall-E mini is a better understanding of pop-culture. Characters like Yoda and Thanos or celebrities including Guy Fieri or JK Rowling will appear… often in slightly vague but identifiable shapes.

Science fiction writer F.L. Wallace described the same idea in his 1953 short story The Music Master:

The [robotic] commercial artist [booth] on the street was temporarily vacant. She hesitated for a moment between her duty to find Danny at once and her desire to own a real work of art. The middle aged couple heading toward the booth decided her. Swiftly she inserted a coin.

“Yes?” said the deep gruff voice of the mechanism.

“I’d like two pictures.” she said...

She considered. “Something different,” she said. “Maybe a combined Miro and Goya.”

“The two styles aren’t compatible,” warned the commercial artist.

“Then make them compatible,” she answered. “It’s time the two were reconciled.”

The commercial artist could not sigh. “Subject matter of the Miro-Goya picture?”

“A peaceful scene. Perhaps rockets to the moon.”

“Goya never heard of rockets,” began the artist...

“Project them,” she insisted reasonably... She wasn’t going to argue with a robot.
