A Top A.I. Art Generator’s Latest Version Prohibits Mimicking Work by Other Artists. Users Are Calling It ‘Censorship’, Richard Whiddington, δημοσίευση Artnet News [1/12/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Only three months on from the arrival of open source A.I. image generator Stable Diffusion, its creator, Stability AI, has released an updated version.
Simply put, Stable Diffusion 2.0 dramatically raises image quality and gives users greater ability to control and finesse the images they create. For its text-to-image generator, it has enhanced the resolution potential by a factor of four. A depth map for its image-to-image model brings greater in-image coherence and creators can now more easily edit images with a new in-painting model.
Much of the attention, however, has focused on what the update prohibits rather than allows. A new adult content filter has removed the ability to create explicit, NSFW images. Version 2.0 also prevents generating photorealistic images of celebrities and in the style of certain artists.
