HERE THERE IS DALL-E #
Have you ever written an expression that contains many features and actions simultaneously in a search engine and got results? What I’m talking about is not that simple. For example: “An orange plush bear eating his apple with one hand while riding a bicycle in Taksim square, but let this painting be like an oil painting.” Hard to even imagine, isn’t it? However, the artificial intelligence named DALL-E can easily create it. The name of this artificial intelligence is a combination of the words surreal painter “Dali” and the cute, animated character “Wall-e”. I think it’s a cleverly created name that blends both artist and artificial intelligence.
PHOTOSHOP FEATURE #
One of the unique features of Dall-e is that it does something similar to the “photoshop” we do, but of course in more detail. For example, you took a very nice pool picture, but a seabed is missing. Normally you can cut the seabed from another picture, adjust the size, edit the color and place it where you want to put it. On the other hand, you just need to tell our artificial intelligence where you want to put that object. Dall-e chooses the object that should be according to the color tones and quality in the photo. It not only selects and puts it but also detects the light source in the photo and makes shading accordingly. Finally, because he knows that the object is put into the water, it creates its reflection in the water. (I think I got goosebumps.) This may seem like a simple process, but how could a non-human being know that the sun is a source of shadow and that water reflects objects? It is a mind-blower!
With this example, we can understand in an even more “understandable” way how Dall-e places objects according to space and purpose. Imagine you are going to an art gallery. You took a photo. The photo contains an oil painting of a famous painter and an armchair in front of that painting for people to sit on. You want to add a dog to this picture. If you want to place the dog on the seat, Dall-e puts a real dog there. However, if you want to put that dog in the painting, the features of that painting place it “in the frame”. In other words, he adds a dog with the oil painting technique that does not ruin the order at all.
SHOULD WE CONCERN? #
Dall-e’s power can be used for very useful purposes and can also cause bad results if it falls into bad hands. People with unlimited but “dirty” imaginations can misuse this technology. To prevent this, Dall-e has some restrictions. Dall-e limited the ability to create violence, hatred, and adult images. Also, real human faces will not be used.
In the future, we will see whether Dall-e’s dangerous or useful side will outweigh. However, on the bright side, the fact that human beings have introduced such an advanced technology refutes the idea that there is a limit to what we can do.
Or…should there be a limit?
