DALL-E 2 is an AI system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language. Unveiled by OpenAI as an improved version of DALL-E in April 2022, the AI system gained significant attention as it was used to create art and photorealistic, humorous images. In June 2022, a knock-off free version of DALL-E, DALL-E mini, went viral on social media.
On April 6th, 2022, AI research and deployment company OpenAI unveiled DALL-E 2, an AI model able to make realistic edits to existing images, create variations of images and generate completely new images from natural language prompts. On the same day, a demonstration video for the AI system was uploaded to YouTube (shown below).
Have you ever seen a polar playing bass? Or a robot painted like a Picasso? Didn't think so. DALL-E 2 is a new AI system from OpenAI that can take simple text descriptions like "a koala dunking a basketball" and turn them into photorealistic images that have never existed before.
DALL-E 2 is an upgraded version of DALL-E, an AI system released by OpenAI in January 2021. DALLE-2 can create original, realistic images from a text prompt in natural language and is able to combine concepts, attributes and styles (examples shown below).
DALL-E 2 is also able to produce realistic edits to exiting images from a natural image caption, adding and removing elements, shade, reflections and textures. Additionally, the software has the capacity to create versions of an existing image, such as variations of a painting.
Following its limited release in April 2022, DALL-E 2 has been actively used by users with access to generate art and photorealistic images, as well as images based on humorous prompts. In April and May 2022, multiple images generated by the AI were shared on social media (examples shown below).
On April 19th, 2022, developer Ryan O'Connor posted a blog explaining in detail how DALL-E 2 functions.
On April 20th, 2022, director Karen X. Cheng used the AI system to generate visuals for the song "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone. The clip received over 22,200 views on Twitter and over 10,000 likes on Instagram in roughly two weeks (shown below).
