Is this the ‘next-big-thing’​ in Artificial Intelligence?

Stable Diffusion, an open-source text-to-image model developed by has officially been released

Bit lost? Don’t worry, we’re here to explain.

You can give the AI model a text prompt and it will create an image in pretty much whatever style you can think of.

Sound familiar? You’ve probably come across DALL-E or Midjourney before, but they’re not open-source. Open-source breeds experimentation, anyone can grab the code, tweak it and insert it into their own apps.

Here is what our Innovation Manager Giorgio Liapakis thinks will happen next:

  • Expect an explosion of apps and services to start integrating this tech, finding new ways to use it outside of just creating novelty art.
  • Expect a new category of artists to emerge that “co-create” with the AI.
  • Expect a time period of cringe when big companies will try to aggressively commercialize it quickly without innovating on top of it.
  • Bad people will probably use it to do bad things, but the good should outweigh it.
