OpenAI has recently announced the upgradation of its AI-powered image-generating tool debuting its 3rd version known as Dall-E 3 powered by ChatGPT. Although there are many competitors in the race for text-to-image generation tool, prompt engineering has been a core concern. The previously released version Dall-E 2 had shortcomings which OpenAI tends to overcome with the latest version. A massive new feature and addition is the integration of ChatGPT. In 2021, Dall-E debuted, and shortly afterward, its competitors Stability AI and Midjourney followed suit. But they were far from being their best versions. The AI bias was evident and sometimes, Dall-E failed to capture specific wordings to generate exact images. Therefore, more research and advancement were necessary. Let’s dissect Dall-E 3 powered by ChatGPT to explore the improvements made thus far.
What is Dall-E?
Many people are now aware of ChatGPT and people are using it for fun as well as professional purposes. ChatGPT, powered by AI, enables real-time conversations on a wide range of topics. Similarly, Dall-E, an image-generative model by OpenAI, functions akin to ChatGPT for generating images. Indeed, it can be termed as a variation of ChatGPT architecture and model. Dall-E takes text commands and prompts to generate images through its training data. The creative and imaginative lengths are limitless and you can get anything out of the results. It has the ability to create visually stunning images. Dall-E’s application is in various fields including, but not limited to, design, advertising, filmography, art, and whatnot. OpenAI has stated that none of its models are ‘perfect’ and they continue to learn as we advance in technology to become the ‘best version’.
Dall-E 2 Shortcomings
OpenAI since the launch of Dall-E in 2021 has launched two iterations, the latest being Dall-E 3. Since the technology is still progressing, so are the language models. As a result, it’s inevitable that they possess certain limitations. Dall-E 2 exhibited AI bias due to biased training data in the machine learning (ML) process. While not an error, this bias became apparent since the tool is accessible globally. Moreover, it ignored specific wordings or ‘keywords’ in the prompt. If you are not getting the desired results, people will end up quitting the tool. It was one of the many reasons that people shifted to Midjourney for better image generation at a lower price. Another criticism of the Dall-E 2 model was that upon its release, it generated violent, hateful and explicit images.
Although OpenAI later restricted the ability to generate such images by removing them from training data, people were aware of what this AI image generator was capable of. It also generated images of public leaders based on assumptions without the proper prompt. If the users were seeking perfection, they need to write a detailed prompt describing everything they want to see. Still, the results were not as accurate as they would have expected. Hence, prompt engineering became a bona fide profession to input the right command and train the model for such prompts.
Dall-E 3 Powered by ChatGPT and its Key Features: What’s New?
The third version of Dall-E 3 was announced by OpenAI on 20 September 2023 and is expected to be out by October. Yet, unlike its previous versions, Dall-E 3 will be exclusive to OpenAI’s premium users/subscribers – the ChatGPT Plus and ChatGPT Enterprise users. The reason is that now you can use ChatGPT to generate proper prompts for Dall-E and get accurate results. This lessens the burden on the user for typing the entire detailed command. Instead, you just have to give few words to ChatGPT for getting back a detailed command as per your requirements. As a result, it will return an entire paragraph detailing your instructions. Simultaneously, Dall-E 3 powered by ChatGPT has been programmed to work better with long sentences and prompts. Hence, the integration of ChatGPT is a major breakthrough.
ChatGPT transforms user commands into descriptive paragraphs, guiding Dall-E 3 for precise results. The upgrade is not specific to prompts but produces high-quality images and tripped historical images. Moreover, OpenAI claims that Dall-E 3 also reduces the AI bias and improves safety. Previous versions were able to mimic living artists being vulnerable to copyright. It also portrayed public figures which was unethical. Dall-E 3 will reject the request in case of such prompts being provided. Additionally, it also provides the option to artists opting to stop OpenAI from using some/all of their work to train these language models. Safety is a key feature for Dall-E 3 powered by ChatGPT because text-to-image AI generative models are facing lawsuits from artists claiming that their work was used to train these models.
What Lies Ahead for Dall-E 3 Powered by ChatGPT
OpenAI has effectively considered all of it while programming Dall-E 3 powered by ChatGPT and removing the shortcomings it faced previously. While OpenAI is in the race to become the preferred and number one in the image-synthesizing domain, Midjourney and Stability AI are not far behind. The race to the top is between all of these models that continue to improve daily as AI advancements are being made. What exactly will be the results? Only time will tell. Dall-E 3 powered by ChatGPT will be launched officially in October, which will be followed by research labs and API customers having access to it. It still isn’t clear whether the company will be making this tool available to the public as was the case with previous models. The world is waiting to see what unfolds and how this race shapes up in the future. Stay tuned for more!
