What happened? In the past, if you wanted to generate an image from a text description, you would have needed to use specialized tools and a lot of expertise. But now, there's Imagen. Imagen is an AI system that creates photorealistic images from input text, and it's available to anyone with a computer and an internet connection. All you need is some text, and Imagen will do the rest. This matters because it shows the power of AI in creating new things from existing data. With Imagen, we can imagine all sorts of new images that didn't exist before, and that can be used for any number of purposes.
Why is this important? This is important because it shows that, even as AI gets better and better at creating things, we humans still have an important role to play. We're the ones who decide what to imagine, and what to create with Imagen. So even as AI gets more powerful, we need to make sure that we stay in control of it, and use it for good. Imagine how this new technology will impact artistic jobs and design jobs. Tell the AI system what kind of website, logo, or product you want and the system starts to design it for you, not one version but perhaps thousands of versions.
I'm excited to see what people will imagine with Imagen! What will you create? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
