STABLE DIFFUSION(5 articles)
stable diffusion, a 2022 text-to-image model, employs deep learning and diffusion techniques. it creates detailed images from text inputs and handles tasks like inpainting, outpainting, and image-to-image translation using text cues. developed by researchers from ludwig maximilian university of munich and runway, with support from stability AI and non-profit organizations, this latent diffusion model is part of deep generative neural networks. it's publicly available with code and model weights, running on common consumer hardware with a moderate GPU (8 GB VRAM). this contrasts with previous models like DALL-E and midjourney, which were restricted to cloud services.
